The fully automated DBS-MS 500 from CAMAG is state of the art technology to analyze DBS. The DBS are directly eluted in a designed extraction chamber and guided online to an analysis system. Sample processing is automated, including the application of an internal standard through a high precision sprayer and barcode assignment. In addition to the analysis results, a picture of each DBS card before and after extraction and the run parameters are reported to maintain high traceability and quality.
AUTOMATED TABLET DISSOLUTION
The online ADS systems are so called „closed loop“ dissolution systems. The basic building blocks for an ADS automated online dissolution systems are a dissolution testing instrument, a pumping system for sample transfer, a UV/VIS spectrophotometer with cell changer and the powerful control software package WinDiss ARGUS. The pump can either be a high precision piston pump or a cost effective peristaltic pump.
AUTOMATED TABLET DISINTEGRATION
The PTZ AUTO EZ instruments are the fully-automated tablet disintegration test systems. They are available with 1, 2, 3 and 4 testing stations. The multiple station testing instruments allow independent operation of either basket for the fully automated determination of the exact disintegration time of each tablet in the baskets.
AUTOMATED TABLET HARDNESS
The WHT 3ME instrument is designed to automatically measure the four parameters weight, height, diameter (or length) and hardness for either round or odd shaped tablet forms. It is in full compliance with EP <2.9.8> and USP <1217>. It features unique sample positioning “flaps” for correct orientation of oblongs, caplets or other odd shaped samples in the combined hardness and diameter test station. Having a carousel for sample transport, it can be used with or without an auto batch feeder.
AUTOMATED TABLET FRIABILITY
PTF ERA and PTF DR are automated friability testing instruments, available as single or multiple drum apparatus.The tested samples are automatically discharged into individual stainless steel collectors without having to remove the drums from their axis. Using the PTF DR instruments an analytical balance can be connected to the COM port of the PTF DR to perform the weight test prior and after friability testing.
AUTOMATED POWDER TESTING
The automated PTG-S4 powder testing system is used to measure the flow behaviour of granules and powders in compliance with the current EP <2.9.36/17> and USP <1174> pharmacopoeia as well as with the international ISO 4324 standards.
