Suspension for administration
Management Section, Chief Investigator
We carry out safety tests on laboratory animals. When we prepare test substances to be given to those animals, we use mortars in most cases. When a large amount of test substance is required, we need more man-power and preparation could take a whole day.
In preparing some test substances from one pharmaceutical company, the particle size of the test substance varied when prepared by hand. Thus, we decided to introduce the super mixer. Preparation time is significantly reduced, and utilizing the deaeration feature, we are now able to check whether or not the test substance is well-blended. Efficiency is dramatically improved now. Although we purchased only one unit of AR-250 (*), we are considering the purchase of a larger model.
