Opt-Diss is a great investment for formulation labs!
Application Area: Pharmaceutical development, preformulation, formulation, dissolution kinetics, supersaturation testi
"I started using Distek's Opt-Diss fiber optics technology more than 10 years ago in a different company and am a big fan of it. The old unit lasted quite a while. We purchased Opt-Diss 410 a couple of years ago and have been very happy with it. The ease of use and instant data availability is a big factor for us in a development setting. There is real time data, no volume correction, no line purging, no air bubble problem. The new model is more compact than the first generation and starting up sequence is much simpler. One of the biggest advantages is that you can take very frequent data points at the start of dissolution and program the sampling according to the characteristics of the formulation. Cleaning is very easy after use. The probes are surprisingly robust. Even after I bought the new Opt-Diss 410, I kept using the old fiber bundle and probes I bought 12 years ago and they are working nicely. I enjoyed working with all the sales managers I interacted with. The field support staff have been excellent, very dedicated and very friendly. I applaud Distek's retention of good people! It makes a huge difference in the user experience!"
No more sampling! The Distek Opt-Diss 410 in-situ fiber optic UV system measures directly in the vessel, eliminating the need for conventional sampling, and with-it consumables like filters, tubing and syringes, saving time, labor, and money. Moving light rather than liquids also allows generating near real-time dissolution data and nearly limitless sample points as frequently as every five seconds.
