Hardness Testing

Tablet hardness - sometimes also referred to as tablet break force - measures the mechanical integrity of a tablet. Dr. Schleuniger Pharmatron hardness testers with precision measuring technology, EP & USP compliant design and Swiss quality components guarantee highest accuracy for test results you can rely on. Since 1972, measuring of weight, thickness, width, diameter and hardness of virtually all tablet shapes from round to oval, oblong and special shapes is our core competence.
