The SmartTest 50 automatically tests weight, thickness, width, diameter/length and hardness of virtually all tablet shapes in full compliance with current Pharmacopeia requirements. Proven hardness testing measuring technology guarantees accurate and highly reliable test data that can be evaluated and printed immediately or exported to an external computer. An integrated color touchscreen with simple icon-based navigation makes operating the very intuitive, consequently reducing operator training time to an absolute minimum. Suited for both laboratory and production environments, the tester has been designed to optimize efficiency of quality control process without limiting the range of possible applications. Up to 23 tablet samples are placed in a carousel by the user and all further testing is done automatically. The patented SmartAlign™ system guarantees reliable orientation of test samples in the integrated measuring stations and can automatically turn oblong and oval shapes for width and length measuring prior to hardness (breakforce) testing. In order to ensure trouble-free alignment at all times, an integrated cleaning function removes debris and broken tablet fragments from all contact surfaces of the hardness station after each measurement.
