Realize cost savings with new DisiTest 50 disintegration tester


The DisiTest 50 automatically detects the disintegration time of tablets and capsules in full compliance with current Pharmacopeia. Visual monitoring of the disintegration process by the operator is not required. Induction heating technology reduces heating times to only 3-5 minutes and completely eliminates unproductive cleaning times typically associated with conventional water bath based systems.

Because the heating process occurs directly inside the beaker rather than by applying heat from the outside, the DisiTest 50 ensures very precise and homogeneous temperature control. Test medium temperature is monitored continuously by a contact-free infrared sensor and recorded for reporting purposes.


Homogeneous test medium temperature throughout inductive heating process

From test setup to cleaning – the DisiTest 50 sets new standards for fast and ergonomic handling. Wireless baskets with self-centering magnetic coupling can be conveniently exchanged within seconds and cleaning has never been easier. To ensure a long product life, the robust baskets are sealed and protected against corrosion.

User-friendly operation

The DisiTest 50 is controlled via an intuitive and clearly structured color touch screen. Once a test has been started, the current disintegration status of each tablet is displayed graphically. Different testing modes guarantee fast test setup with programmed products and/or methods including T1/T2 limits – or alternatively allow performing direct tests without any programming. Different access levels ensure that data can only be modified by authorized personnel.

Comprehensive test reporting

On completion of a test, a report with measured results, statistics and temperature protocol is automatically printed. For ease of regulatory compliance and to minimize administrative work, the DisiTest 50 automatically records:

  • Disintegration time of each tablet
  • Test medium temperature
  • Beaker filling level
  • Type of test medium (e.g. water / buffer or 0.1 N HCl)
  • Serial number of basket used


Flexibility maximized

The DisiTest 50 can be extended to a fully automatic disintegration testing system with up to 4 independent testing stations and one MediaPrep station – all controlled via the touch screen of the Master station. Because individual testing stations are connected using state-of-the-art TCP/IP technology, system layout is flexible and retrofitting
additional stations is possible anytime.

Efficiency maximized = Cost savings

By streamlining testing processes and reducing unproductive times to a minimum, significant cost savings can be realized. At the same time the DisiTest 50 is a future-proof investment that guarantees reliable results, a long product life and short training times, setting it apart from all conventional systems currently available on the market.
