The 280-DS from Agilent measures, verifies and documents the physical parameters that have been established with recently improved mechanical qualification standards, reducing the need for visual interpretation of measurements from manual gauges.
Dissolution is a technique used in the pharmaceutical industry to determine the rate at which active pharmaceutical ingredients release from solid dosage forms such as tablets and capsules. The 280-DS Mechanical Qualification System, with its 280-DS workstation software can make measurements within seconds.
The 280-DS enables users to qualify any dissolution apparatus that has an open-head design, including Agilent’s 708-DS and 709-DS, obtain accurate, precise and repeatable measurements with limited hands-on interaction using optical sensors and the 280-DS Workstation Software, determine quantitative values for each parameter with data recorded and stored in 21 CFR Part 11-compliant software and track physical performance data of the dissolution apparatus over time in order to maintain the apparatus in top mechanical condition.
“Pharmaceutical customers now have one instrument that supports whichever type of qualification their dissolution laboratory requires,” said Allan Little, Agilent director of marketing for dissolution systems.
The 280-DS Mechanical Qualification System supports traditional and improved qualification methods to meet current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP).
