Small Volume Dissolution

Small Volume Dissolution Conversion Kit

Performing dissolution tests on high potency drugs with low concentrations of active pharmaceutical ingredients is difficult, if not impossible, with a standard apparatus 1 or 2 dissolution bath. Common analytical instruments are not sensitive enough to detect such low concentrations. Similar difficulties occur during dissolution testing of medical devices, microparticles, beads, and topical drugs, such as creams, gels, and ointments. Distek's Small Volume Conversion Kit offers the perfect solution to all of these common dilemmas.

  • Interchangeable Paddles and Baskets
  • Volume Flexibility
  • Available for Most Distek Dissolution Testers
  • Attaches Directly to a Standard Distek Dissolution Shaft
  • Flexibility by Design

Eclipse 5300

Automated Dissolution Sampler

CONVERT YOUR EXISTING BENCHTOP GLASS BIOREACTOR TO A SINGLE-USE BIOREACTOR IN SECONDS!

The Distek Eclipse 5300 Automated Dissolution Sampler offers rapid, accurate sampling using precision syringe pumps. The elimination of valves and rotary pumps along with the optimized sample pathway with a minimal 4.5 mL internal volume increases reliability while reducing common sources of sample carryover. Adding a lower-cost ‘child’ sampler is a cost-effective way to sample from two baths. Each of the baths may run the same method or two different independent ones. The integrated optional filter changer enables the use of most common 25 mm syringe filters instead of requiring custom filter plates and also additional bench space.

  • Rapid / Accurate Sampling
  • No Valves or Rotary Pumps
  • Cost-Effective Dual Bath Solution
  • Media Recycling and Replacement
  • Color Touch Screen Display
  • Optional Filter Changer


Opt-Diss 410

In-Situ UV Fiber Optic System for Dissolution Testing

No more sampling! The Distek Opt-Diss 410 in-situ fiber optic UV system measures directly in the vessel, eliminating the need for conventional sampling, and with-it consumables like filters, tubing and syringes, saving time, labor, and money. Moving light rather than liquids also allows generating near real-time dissolution data and nearly limitless sample points as frequently as every five seconds.

  • Simple and Efficient Dissolution Testing
  • Multicomponent Analysis
  • Rapid and Routine Data Collection
  • In-Situ UV Measurements
  • Single Software Package
  • Industry Approved

ezfill 4500

Dissolution Media Heating, Degassing, and Dispensing

Many of the main causes of false dissolution test and qualification failures are related to media de-aeration and dispensing. The ezfill 4500 makes media preparation simple and error free. It’s unique in-line heating with vacuum degassing and dispensing allows for a very compact design. The optional mobile cart lets one easily move the unit from bath to bath, while the available remote dispensing nozzle allows directly filling vessels in place. The ezfill 4500 is not only compatible with Distek baths, but almost every other bath on the market.

  • Fast, Reliable and Consistent Results
