Distek, Inc. Awarded U.S. Patent for their Silicone Dissolution Vessel Covers

North Brunswick, NJ – Distek, Inc., an industry leader in dissolution testing products, accessories, and validation services, is pleased to announce the official patent for their Silicone Vessel Covers (US 8,434,378 B2).

Distek’s patented flexible vessel cover is chemically resistant and physically more durable than the rigid covers currently on the market. The dual sided universal vessel cover fits all vessels that are dimensionally compliant to the current specifications as well as vessels with smaller ID openings.

The universal flexible vessel cover is also designed and labeled for use with Distek sampling probes.

The covers are available in two configurations; a small center hole for paddle only applications and a larger hole with a removable center cap for basket applications.



“The release of this innovative vessel cover offers Distek and non-Distek customers alike a superior option to current choices of vessels covers,” says Jeff Seely, Vice President of Sales & Business Development. “The chemically resistant & durable design will not only provide extended life of the cover but will also reduce the overall consumable cost.”

Automate Your Tablet Introduction!

Precise dosage introduction is an essential component of any successful dissolution test. Through unattended introduction, the Dosage Delivery System (DDS) by Distek positions every dissolution test for success.


Whether a Distek or Non-Distek Dissolution Instrument, our DDS System is Universally Adaptable!

Universally Adaptable – The Dosage Delivery System (DDS) can be manually actuated making it compatible with older Distek models as well as any dissolution system with sufficient access to the vessel plate.

Simultaneous or Stagger Drop – Highlighted by the ability to simultaneously or stagger drop dosage forms at a defined temperature or specified time and date, the DDS eliminates all variables associated with traditional manual introduction.
