TABLET FRIABILITY TESTERS

Based on an original design by Roche, the Friabilator has now become an accepted standard throughout the pharmaceutical industry for determining the resistance of tablets to the abrasion and shock experienced in manufacturing, packing and shipping operations.  Such stresses can lead to capping, chipping, abrasion or even breakage of the tablets. Whilst the basic design remains unchanged, considerable advances have been made in terms of reliability and ease of usage which have now been incorporated into modern day units.

PHARMACOPOEIA COMPLIANCE AND VALIDATION

In order to meet your individual requirements, Copley provide a three tier approach to regulatory compliance and validation.

  • Each Friability Tester is checked by our quality control department prior to despatch and supplied as standard with a Certificate of Compliance documenting the test protocol used and certifying conformity with the appropriate Pharmacopoeia.
  • In addition to this general Certificate of Compliance, some of you have asked us for specific certification on certain critical components, for example, the Friability Drum. If you require this additional service, please refer to the appropriate ordering information on Numbering and Certification. This service includes the numbering of the individual component concerned and the provision of a detailed certificate indicating the actual measurements relating to that component and the metrology equipment (and its traceability) used in measuring them.
  • Finally, all systems are available for our engineers to come on-site to perform fully documented IQ/OQ.
