New line of dissolution testers offers pharmaceutical customers increased automation and flexibility with reliable results
CSP, exclusive UK agent for VanKel dissolution systems, announces
the UK launch of the innovative V-Series line of dissolution
The latest addition to VanKel's extensive range of
equipment, V-Series offers pharmaceutical customers increased
automation and flexibility while delivering reliable results in
an efficient, productive and cost-effective manner.
The shape of
the V-Series testers is a radical move away from traditional
It allows full operator visibility and easy access to
improve test scope and validity without compromising valuable and
expensive bench space.
"The unique V-shape layout places
vessels within easy view of the user", says Greg Dowds,
product manager at CSP.
"Any unusual occurrences, such as
dissolved gases covering the surface or dosage form floatation is
This latest design also enhances the
bioavailability testing process.
Together with a range of
options, design modifications simplify set up and automate
several steps in the process, making testing simpler and more
convenient, without impairing the measurement of critical
results." The V-Series models feature an alpha-numeric
keyboard, digital communication and programmability.
TruCenter vessel alignment system eliminates the necessity to
adjust and check the centering of a vessel, which is critical in
capturing accurate test results.
The standard VK 7020 model is
easily programmed to meet the sampling time requirements as the
user may automate various methods.
Independent motorised control
of each sampling cannula allows either individual sampling probes
to be lowered when sampling sequentially or all of the probes
during simultaneous sample withdrawal.
AutoTemp measures and
records the temperature in each vessel at programmed times,
assuring that the temperature doesn't fluctuate during the
Electric Clutch allows each spindle to start
rotating at a programmed time, allowing automated runs that meet
the USP requirements that dictate that tablets are dropped into
Dosage Dropping Capability will also
automatically drop tablets into vessels, either simultaneously or
sequentially, eliminating the errors that manual tablet dropping
