BIO-DIS Reciprocating Cylinder Apparatus
The Agilent BIO-DIS reciprocating cylinder apparatus (Apparatus 3) is designed to meet current USP Apparatus 3 and EP Reciprocating Cylinder specifications. It is typically used for testing dosage forms in an environment where the the pH/gastrointestinal changes that occur in the body are simulated.
The BIO-DIS is suited for extended and sustained release dosage forms. Capable of running unattended for up to six days, the BIO-DIS can store up to 15 programs and provide direct control over timepoints, agitation rate, sampling time points, movement between vessel rows, hold dip time, and drain time.
