Hardness Testing

A tablet hardness tester – sometimes also referred to as tablet breaking force tester (USP <1217>) or resistance to crushing strength tester (Ph. Eur. 2.9.8) – measures the mechanical integrity of a tablet. SOTAX tablet hardness testers with precision Dr. Schleuniger® measuring technology, standard-setting user friendliness, and robust Swiss quality components guarantee highest accuracy and test results you can rely on. Since 1972, reliable testing of virtually all tablet shapes from round to oval, convex oblong, and special shapes has made our systems the preferred choice of leading Pharmaceutical companies in R&D, QC, and IPC all over the world.
