Part Number Pack Size Price Qty
VERTHLD-750 Each

Large Basket insert for testing of Metformin. Inserts compatible with any dissolution tester

Some versions of the metformin extended release tablets require the use of a special cage to ensure they remain vertical for the dissolution test. The inserts are placed into the standard USP1 baskets, then the tablet is placed inside the insert. The insert is designed so that it can not topple or tilt during the test. Full details on this test can be found on the USP website.
