Fiber optic dissolution is the quicker, more reliable alternative for large or difficult data sets.
Traditional dissolution testing is conducted by manually removing samples from dissolution vessels and using a UV spectrometer or HPLC for testing. With fiber optics, real-time drug release level is determined in-situ in your vessels, in real-time and without any removal of samples. The labor-intensive manual sampling procedure is completely eliminated and, therefore, the testing procedure is simplified.
Fiber optic dissolution is more economical because consumables for sampling, such as pipettes, syringes, sippers, tubing, and filters, are not needed. In addition, fiber optics can generate more frequent data points and produce a more detailed dissolution profile, which may be beneficial for developing discriminatory methods.
