SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the 709-DS Dissolution Apparatus, which features a bath-free design that provides an unobstructed view of the dissolution vessel.
This new tool is used to test the release profile of many dosage forms.
In addition to improved visibility of the dissolution environment, the 709-DS offers increased efficiency through rapid media heating and elimination of water bath cleaning. Vessel media is heated through Agilent's Direct Vessel Heating system. The instrument is based on the proven 708-DS platform for consistent performance and offers support for a wide range of workflows.
'The 709-DS Dissolution Apparatus offers peace of mind for researchers in quality assurance and quality control,' said Allan Little, Agilent director of marketing, Dissolution Testing. 'It offers unmatched flexibility and time-saving capabilities such as AutoTemp In-Vessel Temperature Sensing, which automatically reads the temperature of each sample before, during and after each dissolution run.'
Automated sample collection and online ultraviolet dissolution integration are available as options to increase laboratory productivity and efficiency as well.
