Physical Testing

Physical testing by
Teledyne Hanson Research

Physical testing refers to the monitoring of physical characteristics of a drug product, typically oral dosage forms such as tablets and capsules.  Physical testing examines the physical attributes of the drug form, such as disintegration, powder flowability, tablet dimensions, and tablet breaking force.

Automated Disintegration Tester

Automated disintegration testing with the Disi AutoSense system

The new Disi AutoSense™ delivers fully automated disintegration testing in compliance with USP <701> and <2040> and their harmonised EP and JP methods.  Controlled by sophisticated software, the system measures and stores test data while displaying in‐process disintegration values graphically in real time.  21 CFR Part 11 compliance is enhanced by secure audit trails, data security, and advanced user permissions settings.  Every AutoSense system is supported by Teledyne Hanson’s world-renowned installation, qualification, and maintenance support services.

Powder Flowability Tester

Powder Flowability with the Flodex system

The Flodex is a simple-to-use tool that helps you determine a reliable and repeatable flowability index over an arbitrary scale of 4 to 40 to use as a specification for your raw materials.  This one simple test takes in account the numerous parameters that affect powder flowability such as particle size and shape, “fines,” unit surface, actual and bulk density, porosity, settling, and electrostatic charge.

Tablet Testers

Manual and automated tablet testing with LAB.line tablet testers

As part of Hanson’s dedication to precision release-rate testing instruments and related analytical services, we are proud to partner with Kraemer Elektronik to offer their line of manual and automated tablet testers.  Kraemer is known for the ability to combine the testing of multiple parameters into one small footprint with high precision, ease of use, and degrees of automation suited to small, medium, and large research lab or production facilities.  Kraemer’s LAB.line systems include the T-Series and H-Series manual testers, and the P-Series automated testers.

Sample preparation extractor

Lightning fast extraction of API with the XTRX500 Sample Preparation Extractor

Traditional methods of sample extraction are often tedious and time-consuming, especially with problematic drug formulations that may take many hours to dissolve.  Teledyne Hanson’s new Sample Preparation Extractor (XTRX500) provides an advanced, efficient solution for rapid extraction through an innovative, proprietary combination of high frequency pulverisation and forced jet mixing in a compact, programmable platform.
