Friability Testers – why every lab should have one

friability testersFriability testers can ascertain whether your tablets are robust enough to withstand the generic conditions inside the shelf packaging, both when stationary and in transit, from the moment they are packaged until first opened by the end-user.

Friability testers are important pieces of equipment, and every laboratory where tablets and capsules are produced should have one.  Why are friability testers so important? Because all pharma manufacturers need to know that their tablets are built to last. This knowledge provides much needed assurances that customers and end-users are getting the end product in a suitable, useable condition.
