Sotax - Solutions for Pharmaceutical Testing

SOTAX is a global leader in providing high-quality dissolution testing systems, automated sample preparation workstations for content uniformity, assay and blend uniformity testing, as well as physical tablet testing instruments for the pharmaceutical, dietary supplement, medical device and biopharmaceutical industries.

Since its foundation in 1973, SOTAX has grown considerably from a small engineering company to its current position as a global leader in tablet testing technologies. SOTAX still remains a privately owned independent company. Globally, the SOTAX Group is represented by local SOTAX subsidiaries (USA, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, Czech Republic, India and China) and distributors dealing with sales, service and validation of instrumentation. SOTAX also offers technical and analytical services.

Continued growth has been cemented by the acquisition in 2008 and 2013 of the Zymark (fully automated dissolution and sample preparation workstations) and Dr. Schleuniger® Pharmatron (physical tablet testing technologies) brands respectively. The success of SOTAX can be attributed to the strong commitment for continual product improvement. SOTAX design concepts allow for customization of the pharmaceutical testing systems for specific needs; for example, the new Xtend™ Dissolution Line for tablet testing:

For customers, the ability to flexibly respond to permanent change in today's fast-paced pharmaceutical environment can make the difference between success and failure. Fast time-to-market requirements, outsourcing, relocations, shift of manufacturing capacities and short return on investment considerations ask for equally flexible testing solutions in R&D and quality control laboratories.

The new and fully modular and scalable Xtend™ concept is 100% based on this basic premise and allows lab scientists to tailor tablet dissolution testing to both their current and future needs - making their investment future-proof. This new concept consists of new individual and standardized Xtend™ modules which can be flexibly combined for different customer requirements.
