AE-Series – Friability and Abrasion Tester for Tablets – Charles Ischi AG
US and European Pharmacopeias define tests for the friability (ease of crumbling) and abrasion resistance of uncoated tablets that are important components of overall product quality and stability. These tests involve tumbling them in drums for defined durations and at specified speeds and number of revolutions (typically 100).
The friability test does also help to reveal potential capping, chipping and delamination issues(!) It is a very important observation required of the technician.
Charles Ischi Testing Technology offers the AE-series of tablet Friability & Abrasion Testers that allow these tests to be carried out easily and precisely.
