The ST50 sets new standards in fast and efficient semi-automatic testing of up to 5 physical parameters. Weight, thickness, width, diameter/length and hardness of virtually all tablet shapes can be tested in full compliance with current Pharmacopeia requirements. Proven Dr. Schleuniger® hardness measuring technology guarantees accurate and highly reliable test data that can be evaluated immediately. An integrated color touch screen with simple icon-based navigation makes operating the ST50 very intuitive consequently reducing operator training time to an absolute minimum.

SAVES TIME AND MONEY
The operator places the tablets to be tested on the tablet carousel and presses the start button. All further testing is done automatically. Up to 23 samples can be tested in one test run. Several test runs can be combined to one single test report.
Operating the ST50 is simple. The intuitive icon-based touch screen interface sets new standards for fast and user-friendly control. From executing basic tests to programming products with T1/T2/PL limits and methods - everything is configurable at the touch of a button. On completion of a test run, a comprehensive test report is printed automatically. Each report shows all product and test parameters, the calibration date and individually measured values with statistical analysis.
CUSTOM TABLET CAROUSELS
No customizations are required for standard tablet shapes such as round, oblong and oval. Unconventional tablets (e.g. diamond, tear-drop or heart) are no problem for the ST50. Upon request, we manufacture custom-made tablet carousels to suit any tablet shape. The patented SmartAlign™ function guarantees that tablet position is maintained at all times.
DOCUMENTATION AND CALIBRATION
Each ST50 is calibrated, verified and tested according to strict quality procedures before it leaves our factory. An internal test report is included with each tester. As a world-first, the ST50 features the patented SmartCal™ system to calibrate and verify an entire range using a single traceable reference weight.
