Penetration testing is a fast and accurate measure of the consistency of fluids, gels and pastes.
Ointments with a low consistency, for example, can be more thoroughly applied on the skin and more easily absorbed.
By contrast, a substance with a high consistency can be used to cover a wound effectively.
Using small sample quantities the PNR 12 penetrometer from Anton Paar provides quick and easy measurements of sample consistency. A variety of test kits are available for different pharmaceutical products and standards such as the official WHO method European Pharmacopoeia 2.9.9.
Anton Paar provides full instrument qualification for the pharmaceutical industry.
