  • In-Situ Measurements
    Moves the analytical measurement into the vessel,
    eliminating sampling errors and media
    loss calculations.
  • Horizontal Pathlength
    Transmits light across a horizontal pathlength
    without the need for mirrors or prisms and
    minimizes the potential for trapping air bubbles
    and build up of particles found with dip typeprobes with vertical pathlengths.
  • Resident Stationary ARCH Probes
    Eliminates the need for a raising and lowering
    sampling manifold.
  • Rapid Spectra Collection
    Increased dissolution accuracy and improved
    quality of profile analysis through simultaneous
    data collection from 6-12 vessels in as fast as every
    5 seconds.
  • Universal Interface
    Allows the Opt-Diss 405 to be used on
    most dissolution systems without the need for
    additional hardware.
