When USP 1, 2, 4, 5 & 6 dissolution tests are carried out, the preparation of the media and its degassing, tempering and accurate metering into the test vessels involves substantial effort. The SOTAX MPS (Media Preparation Station) automates these tasks, permitting the efficient preheating and degassing of the dissolution media using SOTAX Thin Film Technology™, as well as fast and accurate filling. For even greater efficiency, the use of concentrates allows the system to further reduce media preparation time.
All aspects of the media preparation process are automatically controlled. This improves dissolution test reliability and repeatability, and is particularly beneficial in laboratories where many short tests are carried out or where several dissolution units are used.
