Tablet Hardness and Disintegration Testers for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Dr Schleuniger Pharmatron provides complete tablet testing solutions and specialises in tablet hardness testers and tablet disintegration testers.

With a proven track record of more than 15,000 testers, the company’s physical test equipment for solid dosage forms is used in research laboratories, quality control departments and in automatic in-process control (IPC) of pharmaceutical companies all over the world.

From drug formulation to tablet manufacturing

Tablet hardness, also referred to as tablet breaking force, plays a vital role in defining dosage form with optimum characteristics. Dr Schleuniger Pharmatron tablet hardness testers provide precision results to define the ideal correlation between tablet dimensions, weight, hardness, disintegration time and friability in research and development (R&D).

In tablet manufacturing or production, the company’s tablet testing systems ensure that produced dosage form meets the defined specifications.

Streamlined quality control processes

Versatile and easy-to-operate tablet hardness testers and disintegration testers accumulate measured hardness, weight, thickness, diameter/length, width and disintegration time in reports that are readily accepted by international regulatory authorities.

All 21 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR), part 11 requirements pertaining to electronic records keeping are fulfilled for ease of regulatory compliance.

Automatic IPC with tablet presses

Dr Schleuniger Pharmatron’s automatic tablet testing systems can be operated stand-alone or fully integrated with leading brands of tablet presses.

Vibration-resistant weight measuring and reliable orientation of round, oblong, oval and special shapes guarantee maximum flexibility at short cycle times.

Measured results are transferred online to the tablet press for automatic adjustment of production parameters so that no operator interaction is required.

High-quality precision engineering

High-quality components paired with Swiss precision engineering provide for long product life and minimise costly machine downtime.

In order to ensure maximum reliability, all instruments are tested according to strict quality standards before they leave the factory.
