Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the 280-DS mechanical qualification system, an instrument for routine calibration of a dissolution apparatus. The system accurately measures, verifies, and documents physical parameters established with recently enhanced mechanical qualification standards, eliminating the need for visual interpretation of measurements from manual gauges.
The system enables users to qualify dissolution apparatuses that have an open-head design; obtain accurate, precise, and repeatable measurements with limited hands-on interaction using optical sensors and the 280-DS Workstation software; and determine quantitative values for each parameter with data recorded and stored in 21 CFR Part 11-compliant software. It also allows users to track physical performance data of dissolution apparatuses in order to maintain the apparatus in top mechanical condition.
