Part Number Pack Size Price Qty

A Magnetic Version of the Japanese Pharmacopeia Basket Sinker. (This has the same dimensions as the sinker shown in the USP).

Japanese Pharmacopeia Magnetic Basket Sinker

Magnetic fabrication permits use in robotic systems whilst remaining fully compliant with the USP specifications.

Manufactured using QLA proprietary engineering, this sinker is tough and resiliant and will last longer than most Japanese sinkers.

Japanese sinkers feature a hinged end with a clip to allow capsule inertion and maintain security during the test.

The USP states that

 “A small, loose piece of nonreactive material, such as not more than a few turns of wire helix, may be attached to dosage units that would otherwise float. An alternative sinker device is shown in Figure 2a.”

The alternative sinker is defined with the diagram below. This sinker is designed to work with capsules in such a way that the sinker will not interfere with the dissolution rate. To meet that it is important that the spaces between the bars are carefully regulated to ensure a consistent and reproducible flow dynamic.
