Practical Dissolution Testing

1 Day Course

This one day course is an excellent introduction to the theory and principles of dissolution testing. This heavily regulated technique often appears simple to use, but the underlying theory and significance of the various apparatus and test methodologies is complex.

  • We limit numbers to 6 per course so that each delegate gets the opportunity to ask questions and fully participate in practical exercises 
  • When delivered on-site we can design the course material to suit your specific training needs
  • Customisable written assessments are available if required


Course Overview

A comprehensive one day practical course that condenses important theory with critical calibration, verification and practical tips; making it a must for anyone using dissolution equipment.

The course is backed with explanatory images and supplemented with a practical session with state of the art instruments.
