The PTS3E is designed for the manual control of suppository and pessary disintegration time. It conforms to the current requirements as laid down in the European Pharmacopoeia EP <2.9.2>. Three samples are tested simultaneously over a user selectable, pre-set period of 1 minute to 10 hours. The sample containers are rotated through 180°, as specified in the monograph.
The SPT-6 Suppository Penetration Tester is used to determine the softening time of six samples at the same time. It is made in strict compliance with the monograph of the EP <188.8.131.52> Apparatus A.
The PTSWO Suppository Dissolution Test Cell (Rotating Dialysis Cell) is placed into a normal 1 ltr. USP type dissolution vessel which is placed into a Dissolution Test Instrument to test the rate of dissolved active of suppositories and lypophilic carriers.
