Physical Testing

Physical testing refers to the monitoring of physical characteristics of a drug product, typically oral dosage forms such as tablets and capsules. Physical testing examines the physical attributes of the drug form, such as disintegration and powder flowability.

Disintegration Testing

The new Phase One Disintegration Tester from Hanson Research delivers fast, efficient testing in compliance with USP <701> and <2040> and their harmonized EP and JP methods. Designed for speed, precision, ease of use, and very low maintenance, the Phase One provides a compact, cost-effective solution for labs performing disintegration testing for quality control during new product development and/or batch/lot manufacturing.

Powder Flowability

The Flodex is a simple-to-use tool that helps you determine a reliable and repeatable flowability index over an arbitrary scale of 4 to 40 to use as a specification for your raw materials. This one simple test takes in account the numerous parameters that affect powder flowability such as particle size and shape, "fines," unit surface, actual and bulk density, porosity, settling, and electrostatic charge.
