Friability is one of the testing criteria of mechanical strength of the tablet. Labindia manufactures Friability Tester as per pharmacopoeia. The micro-processor controlled friability tester allows the programming of specific time interval or set number of counts / rotations. The display indicates either the elapsed time or the revolution count as per the selected method. The program also allows the weights to be entered for further calculations.
