It comes in two upgradeable, entry-level versions: Basic MS 3000E and Extended MS 3000E. Basic version is well suited to characterizing bulk materials and conducting simple QC checks. It handles manual wet dispersion units only, with a particle size range of 0.1 to 1,000 microns. Extended version allows automatic operation in same range. You can upgrade either version to premium MS 3000 that analyzes wet and dry dispersions, including fragile and cohesive dry powders, over a range of 0.1 to 3,500 microns. Premium system provides full validation support and SOP tracking to comply with 21 CFR Part 11. Malvern Instruments, Westborough, MA. Tel. 508 678 6400 Tablet counter Data ICU 2-80 tablet counter fills as many as 80 60-count bottles per minute, triple that of standard counters with comparable footprint. Unit uses 3D imaging to count and verify all shapes and sizes of tablets and capsules with 100 percent accuracy. It is insensitive to dust, and performance is unaffected by tablet or capsule length. Unit uses two bulk- and two fine-counting sections, coupled with two staged-count areas; it integrates with any bottling line and loads two bottles simultaneously. Modular construction allows you to change over in 5 minutes or less without tools. Modular Packaging, Randolph, NJ. Tel. 973 970 9393 Fax 973 970 9388 Fax 508 678 6403 Metal detector Xtreme metal detector's redesigned user interface includes QWERTY keyboard, automatic set-up, dedicated reject log, and user-friendly color interface modeled on smart-phone design. Unit's multiple-frequency range ensures high sensitivity and makes it immune to vibration. Unit detects metal spheres as small as 0.2 millimeter. Large control opening permits easy access for maintenance. Integral status beacon and configurable inputs and outputs ease installation. Unit can be monitored and controlled remotely from PC.
