In addition to equipment maintenance, HRCare teams execute installation, operation, performance, and re-qualification protocols in your lab. At your convenience—according to your timetable. Our USP-trained chemists run calibrator tests and ensure that every dissolution tester is primed and ready for workload and performance.
Hanson HRCare also provides ASTM E2503-13 mechanical qualification and extended warranty programs. While we continue to recommend and provide instrument performance qualification with the USP Performance Verification Test (PVT), a rigorous mechanical calibration also carries benefit.
Hanson ASTM Certificates of Conformance (COCs) are available for USP accessories (vessels, paddles, baskets, and shafts), detailing all relevant ASTM dimensions and tolerances. These quality accessories, with corresponding COCs, are required for ASTM. Certificates of Analysis (COAs), recording actual dimensional measurements, are available for USP accessories on special order. Please note that a COA is not required for ASTM when a COC is available. A convenient “pre-scan” to evaluate previously installed equipment is available prior to full ASTM qualification.
To support laboratories that desire to comply with the new ASTM standard, we provide a complete ASTM mechanical qualification and certification program for our equipment and accessories. Hanson HRCare ASTM mechanical qualification is available for Hanson SR8-Plus and Vision dissolution testers, including units already installed and in use.
