Press Release: Tablet Testing Tamed!

Astech Projects launch the new T-Pro, a revolutionary Tablet Processing system for drug content analysis at IBLA, Olympia, UK (November 15-16). T-Pro’s unique design gives it the ability to fully automate content uniformity testing and stability analysis, leading to higher throughput rates than ever before.

Anthony Moran, Astech’s Business Development Manager explains “current industry expectations are 1 tablet every 30 minutes, creating backlogs in batch testing, this is often accompanied by vessel size restrictions.” Anthony continues “T-Pro offers a market-leading throughput restricted only by the number of modules. Improved scalability allows users to specify the number of homogenisers, vessel size and volumes for dissolution.”

Astech are renowned for their superiority in bespoke design and engineering quality and the T-Pro is no exception. Long term reliability is conferred through robust, high spec robotics and design excellence. Together with dependable reliability, running costs are also reduced by a novel filtration system which removes the need for expensive consumables. T-Pro’s advanced, easy-to-use software supports parallel processing functions for high throughput and is fully compliant with 21 CFR Part 11.

Every aspect and detail of T-Pro has been designed to meet the individual needs of the user and key areas of the system to suit their requirements and budget. T-Pro’s flexibility means it can be integrated with Liquid Chromatography (LC) systems and Chromatographic Data Systems (CDS) for automated analysis of samples. T-Pro can also be further integrated with proprietary stand alone tablet testing systems to provide a complete automated solution.

The T-Pro complements Astech’s automated inhalation and regulatory respiratory technology, adding to their portfolio of highly automated drug delivery equipment.
