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, powder flowability, tablet dimensions, and tablet breaking force.

Powder flowability tester

Powder flowability with the Flodex system

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.

Tablet tester

Manual and automated tablet testing with LAB.line tablet testers

As part of Hanson’s dedication to precision release-rate testing instruments and related analytical services, we are proud to partner with Kraemer Elektronik to offer their line of manual and automated tablet testers.  Kraemer is known for the ability to combine the testing of multiple parameters into one small footprint with high precision, ease of use, and degrees of automation suited to small, medium, and large research lab or production facilities.  Kraemer’s LAB.line systems include the T-Series and H-Series manual testers, and the P-Series automated testers.
