Vernon Hills, IL (Vocus) November 3, 2010

Cole-Parmer now offers the Thermo Scientific APEX 500 Rx Pharmaceutical Metal Detection System, a complete high-performance system designed to meet the exacting demands of the pharmaceutical industry. When installed on the output of a tablet press, deduster, or capsule filler, this system ensures that even small slivers of metal are detected, providing the highest sensitivity possible at high flow rates—while preventing product damage.

The APEX 500 Rx features a patented multicoil design that consistently delivers industry-leading sensitivity and stability, but is not impacted by product effects or environmental changes. Manufactured to meet the U.S. Federal Drug Administration’s (FDA) stringent requirements for validated production, this system uses only FDA-compliant materials in all areas that come in contact with the product.

As a completely mobile and adjustable system, the APEX 500 Rx disassembles fast for cleaning. The intuitive icon-driven interface and step-by-step Quick Reference guide make it easy to set up and program and also includes multilingual help text. The detector incorporates a Total Quality Solution (TQS) package featuring the patented Thermo Scientific AuditCheck that continuously monitors and validates the system’s performance to help eliminate costly recalls and quarantines.
