Six-cell manual sampling system
The Phoenix DB-6 dry heat diffusion system provides a compact footprint for six-cell testing. Precision heating and stirring systems contained within the block makes the system fully portable, able to be placed in any position the analyst chooses for faster, easier cell preparation. With precise control of mixing speeds from 200 rpm to 900 rpm, and temperatures from 25 °C to 40 °C, the system meets or exceeds USP specifications. An advanced color touch screen running on an embedded single- board computer with a built-in SQL database and real-time clock provides advanced monitoring, diagnostic, and reporting capabilities, user-friendly programming and navigation, storage for up to 100 test protocols, and configurable security for up to 50 users. The large, bright display allows key parameters to be seen from a distance, including speed, temperature, elapsed time, and time to next sample. When sampling is due, the system alerts the operator with the cell position, a countdown timer, and an audible beep. Test reports are delivered via the Teledyne Hanson serial validation printer.
Dissolution testing determines the release rate of an active pharmaceutical ingredient in
tablet or capsule form as it dissolves into solution.
Diffusion testing is a release rate test of an active pharmaceutical ingredient in semisolid form as it permeates through a skin-like membrane into solution.
Physical testing refers to the monitoring of physical characteristics of a drug product,
typically oral dosage forms such as tablets and capsules.
