Fully Automated Disintegration Testing

This is the fully automatic version of the PTZ AUTO 4. With upgraded electronics and the PT-MKT or PT-MKT33 baskets. The four station Tablet and Capsule Disintegration Test Instrument will allow the fully automated determination of the exact disintegration time of all tablets in the baskets. The PTZ AUTO EZ has a built in electric lift, so medium change for extended disintegration times is made easy. All of the PTZ AUTO EZ Fully Automated Tablet Disintegration Test Instruments meet the specifications of USP <701/2040> and EP <2.9.1/ Test A and B> monographs in full.

Depending which size of sample needs to be tested select either the PT-MKT or PT-MKT33 electronical baskets which are both equipped with a temperature sensor to monitor the disintegration buffer temperature, regardless of how many vessels there are in operation. The operational concept of the electronic basket types PT-MKT and PT-MKT33 are simple in design and operate through electrical contacts in each of the 6 (3) working positions of each basket. This is an easy to maintain device and offers the user the additional security that any of the electronic discs may be used in any of the disintegration tubes. There are no overly complicated detectors which need to be „tuned“ to each particular tube or disk. Rigid tiny metal rings are used to make the contact of the disks with the sieve segments. Connect a common PCL printer to the parallel printer port of the PTZ AUTO EZ and at the end of a run, when all tablets are disintegrated, a full test report is printed including individual disintegration, maximum and minimum time. The standard instrument allows to edit maximum 16 testing methods which can be selected by authorised users to start a test.

Now all that you need for a complete data management and documentation is the PTZ32 software package (21CFR part11 compliant). The PTZ32 software from Pharma Test provides effective data and hardware management for tablet disintegration studies and Quality Control. It also includes a batch comparison statistics program, temperature recording and password protection.

PTZ AUTO EZ Systems are also available as: PTZ AUTO 1EZ (single station), PTZ AUTO 2EZ and PTZ AUTO 3EZ (two and three station automated disintegration tester).
