New dissolution testing solutions at Analytica 2018 in Munich, Germany

This year's Analytica was a true milestone for SOTAX. We have taken another important step to complete the range of XtendTM dissolution testing solutions – and proudly present our new flagship tester ATF XtendTM for the first time to the public. True end-to-end automation from media preparation to vessel filling, sampling & filtration, and self-cleaning. The new "F-versions" of existing XtendTM modules use 100% identical components to ensure identical test conditions for comparable results irrespective of the automation level. XtendTM makes method transfer from a manual bath to an automated system fast and easy.

At the same time, we extend our efficient q-doc® data management framework to dissolution testing – giving customers the opportunity to efficiently handle all testing data in one single system. From dissolution to tablet hardness, disintegration, weight, friability, tablet dimensions, moisture loss, particle size distribution, and other test equipment. Drivers for more than 30 instrument types are readily available today.
