DS 8000 (with Piston Pump) SMART

Tablet Dissolution Test Apparatus (6+2)

The new LABINDIA Dissolution Apparatus DS 8000 provide great versatility and configurability. It fulfils all requirements relating to ASTM & FDA Mechanical Calibration. The state-of-the-art Dissolution Testing with touch screen is elegant in design and user friendly with advanced features. The DS 8000 is precision engineered for USP<711> dissolution for ease of use. Allows storage of up to 200 product test run parameters.

Diagnostic functionality and validation report of the system is reliable enough for QC applications and flexible for R&D use.



  • Advanced, Micro-Controller based: User-friendly, complies with current USP, IP & BP specifications
  • Moulded water bath with 6+2 (3+1 & 3+1) vessel configuration enables comparative studies
  • Mono shaft design with easy changeover between Apparatus I & II eliminates routine height validation as per USP
  • Paddles, Baskets and Vessels are laser marked with serial numbers for traceability
  • Automated Tablet dispenser - drops 6 dosage form at single instance
  • Low Evaporation Lids:

» The conical shape low evaporation recovery lids reduces media loss during long run

» Integrated pre-centered lids; no manual removal or positioning of lids. This ensures automatic vessel centering and precise positioning of paddle/basket with shaft without any special tool as per pharmacopeia requirements

  • State-of-the-art design:

            » Easy placement and locking of vessels, the Ease-align system allows the vessels to simply slide into the place (Bionet                        Locking) Once placed, vessels do not float even when empty

            » Facility to monitor Vessel temp., with an external Digital Temperature Sensor




  • DS 8000 Smar t meets all requirements relating to validation, qualification and calibration
  • Appropriate qualification documents (I.Q. / O .Q.) can be supplied with the instrument



  • Piston Pump - PP 08 is Microprocessor controlled and is ideal for sample withdrawal from 6, 7, 8 channels
  • The Piston Pump - PP 08 with iner t ceramic rotor overcomes all absorption issues
  • High flow rates of 25 ml / min can be achieved with accuracy better than ±5%
  • Rinse function for reducing car ryover issues
  • Surfactant Media Compatibility





  • 18 X 8 sets of samples can be collected. F or more sampling interval, 24 X 8 collection trays are available
  • Option of 1.5ml & 2ml HPLC vial 24 X 8 tray is available
  • Auto recognition Sensor for tray with alar m facility fo collection of sample
  • Wide mouth vial to minimise SLS spillover problem due to foaming characteristics
  • Easy positioning with respect to vials or test tube tray for easy changeover





  • Automated sampling as per USP Specifications. Sampling tubes are lowered in the media only at the time of sampling and withdrawn immediately after sampling, thus no par t of the assembly contributes motion, agitation or vibration.
  • Sampling tubes are accurately moved to the USP sampling position i.e. a zone mid way between the sur face of media and the top of paddle/basket parameters, not less than 1 cm from the vessels wall as selected in the method
  • 6 vessels temperature monitoring system automatically measures and records the temperature of individual vessel at specified sample points




  • Built-in Validation software
  • Facility to RINSE the entire sampling path in between sampling timepoint to eliminate contamination & car ryover
  • Specially developed cleaning system to clean the entire sampling path after each run
  • Facilities to per form the dissolution test using 3 buffers (Buffer changing) to cater the application of enteric coating tablets
  • Recovery Test facility to study 100% Dr ug Dissolution
  • Split & on-time interval
