Providing highly reproducible, cost-efficient friability testing for all tablet types, the FRVi series and Friabimat testers from Copley allow analysts to easily characterise the critical tendency of tablets to chip, crumble or break.
The FRVi Series friability tester is an established standard within the pharmaceutical industry. Equipped with advanced design features, ranging from convenient sample loading and unloading to an integrated friability calculator, the FRVi Series streamlines the workflow associated with routine friability testing.
For the hardest and most robust solid dosage forms which fall outside the scope of the conventional friability tester a higher-energy input instrument is needed to generate quantifiable changes in surface mass. The Friabimat, as described in Ph. Eur. 2.9.41, has been designed to generate the necessary abrasive forces required to define the friability characteristics of these types of dosage forms.
