Suppository Testing

Copley offers a number of systems and options for the assessment of the disintegration properties of suppository formulations.

Suppository Disintegration Testing: SDT 1000

Integrated PT100 probe for precision temperature control and measurement

Manual sample inversion offers users ultimate control and flexibility

Powerful magnetic stirrer ensures consistent mixing during testing

Small unit footprint saves previous benchtop space

Independent digital heater/ circulator maintains a constant temperature and minimises vibration

SDT 1000

Designed in accordance with the specifications laid down in Ph. Eur. Test 2.9.2, the SDT 1000 is a single unit tester, optimised for assessing the disintegration properties of suppositories and pessaries and with the appropriate attachment, for measuring the softening time of lipophilic suppositories (as per Ph. Eur. 2.9.22.-2).

The SDT 1000 has a simple design, which uses manual inversion controlled using a water-resistant pulley system. Test parameters including water bath temperature and stirrer speed are easily set using the touch key interfaces.
