Offering a simple set-up specifically for vaginal tablets, the new tester reduces equipment investment costs relative to those associated with generic suppository testing, while at the same time enabling simple, reproducible analysis.

The new tester is the first commercial system specified explicitly for vaginal tablets and enables the disintegration testing recommended by the regulators for all vaginal tablets in order to assess in vitro breakdown. Tablet breakdown is a rate limiting step in the drug delivery process and therefore a critical attribute of this class of pharmaceutical products.

Consisting of a glass water bath, a disintegration basket and a disintegration basket holder, the new tester incorporates a glass disc to cover the apparatus so as to maintain an appropriately humid environment during testing. Also included is a thermostatically controlled hotplate and external temperature probe to maintain test conditions at the 36 – 37oC specified by the Ph. Eur. This hotplate includes a stirrer which though not required for vaginal tablet testing makes it a more generally useful addition to the laboratory.
