Dropper TesterThe dropper vial tester checks the steadiness of doses of liquid administration according to the instruction no. 541 of the European Pharmacopoeia. The measuring systems consists of a balance, an electronic interface and software. The electronic interface has a holder for the medicine vials. The liquid drops are falling through a sensor into a bowl placed on the balance. For 10 measured doses each mass, volume and dropping speed as well as mean value and deviations are calculated and interpreted.

Vials up to a capacitiy of 25 - 200 ml can be mounted. The position of the vial is controlled by a computer. After the amount of drops, necessary for one dose, has been counted, the vial returns to the upright position. All parameters and measuring data are stored in a database. The results are saved under unique file names automatically. It is not possible to change any parameter or measuring data after a run. So the system meets GLP requirements.

The software runs under Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000 or XP. The system requires the PC to have a free serial port (RS-232) or a USB port with serial converter. Balances from Kern or Sartorius (with RS-232 interface) could be used.
