Particle Size Analyzer MS2000


Use for particle size analysis and particle size measurement. Determines the size range, and/or the average, or mean size of the particles in a powder or liquid sample.

Accessories:  Wet & Dry Powder Dispersion

Disintegration Tester


Disintegration tester is widely used to measure the quality of the oral dosage form like tablets and capsules. A disintegration test is a procedure to find out the time it takes for a solid dosage form to completely disintegrate.



Tablet friability can be used to measure efficiency of tabletting equipment or as an indicator of formulation suitability as well as routine QC functions. It can also be thought of as measuring “dusting”. Tablets are rotated in a plastic drum for a specified period of time.

Hardness Tester


Tablet hardness testing, is a laboratory technique used by the pharmaceutical industry to determine the breaking point and structural integrity of a tablet and find out how it changes "under conditions of storage, transportation, packaging and handling before usage" The breaking point of a tablet is based on its shape.
