Distek, Inc. Releases the sensIR 3200 “Bathless” Disintegrator

North Brunswick, NJ – Distek, Inc., an industry leader in pharmaceutical laboratory testing instruments, accessories and validation services, is pleased to announce the release of the sensIR 3200 – their next generation “Bathless” Disintegrator.

The Distek sensIR 3200 uses the latest in bathless heating to offer a disintegrator without the mess and drawbacks associated with conventional water bath-based instruments. By eliminating the water bath and utilizing a sleek modular design, Distek’s sensIR 3200 offers two, four or six disintegration test stations in the smallest footprint of any comparably equipped model.

The advanced features of the sensIR 3200 provide superior performance and functionality. With rapid media warm-up, the sensIR 3200 heats media from ambient to 37°C in less than 8 minutes, significantly increasing throughput by offering rapid changeover between testing.

The sensIR 3200’s color touch screen user interface was designed to provide the user with an intuitive and interactive tool to command the robust features. The icon driven interface lowers overall cost by reducing training time and user errors.

Each disintegration basket can operate independently or in unison, thus increasing throughput. The sensIR 3200 meets or exceeds all harmonized compendial design requirements.

Available Q1 – 2014, the sensIR 3200 will offer Auto Endpoint Detection using “Patent Pending” Near Infrared. This state-of-the-art technology provides endpoint detection without the need of a modified fluted disk, therefore eliminating the accelerated disintegration and disparity the use of a fluted disk can cause.

Jeff Seely, Vice President of Sales & Business Development says The release of the sensIR 3200 is another example of Distek’s innovation and leadership in the pharmaceutical testing market space. The use of IR to detect the presence of the tablet is a leap forward in disintegration testing providing reliable results and compliance with all monographs regardless if a fluted disk is required or not.”
