Varian Introduces Advanced Dissolution Apparatus for Drug Testing Laboratories

Varian, Inc. (NasdaqGS: VARI) announced today the availability of its next generation dissolution apparatus designed for testing tablets, capsules and other dosage forms.  The 708-DS supports a broad set of applications ranging from manual dissolution testing to automated, high-throughput analysis.  It provides extensive flexibility to match the needs of individual laboratories, whether in research or testing. Integration with either the new Varian UV or LC Dissolution Systems will save time and reduce the potential for sample handling errors.

For dissolution testing laboratories, robust instrumentation and ease of use are paramount.  Each laboratory has its own clearly defined set of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that dictate how analyses are performed.  At the same time, customers appreciate the flexibility to make choices about the automation of certain tasks. The 708-DS with traditional water bath and TruAlign™ vessels supports several innovative automation options, including automated media temperature sensing, dosage delivery and sampling.  Customers can decide for themselves which automation options make sense for their laboratory.

For increased productivity beyond manual and semi-automated testing, the 708-DS offers integration capabilities for UV and HPLC analytical finishes. Varian's UV Dissolution System provides superior online UV analysis with a choice of either multicell or fiber-optic configurations.  The Varian LC Dissolution System is a fully integrated, automated online HPLC dissolution system that can provide the maximum amount of information about each sample. Both the UV and LC Dissolution Systems significantly reduce the time required for complete sample analysis. Varian's breadth of products offer the ability to obtain complete dissolution, UV and HPLC solutions from one provider, eliminating concerns over integrating components from multiple vendors.

"The introduction of the 708-DS is clear evidence that Varian continues to listen to our customers and make a significant investment in providing answers for their needs," said Martin O'Donoghue, Senior Vice President, Scientific Instruments. "Our position as a leading manufacturer of pharmaceutical testing equipment is further enhanced by the ability to deliver complete dissolution, UV and HPLC solutions from one provider."

Varian's leadership in dissolution extends far beyond offering innovative dissolution products. We provide customers with a complete solution including qualification services, training, SOP guidance and support, and technical support for equipment.  For the broader dissolution community, Varian provides: educational seminars, a Dissolution Hotline, method development support, regulatory updates and guidance, and the helpful vendor-neutral Dissolution Discussion Group (DDG) online forum.
