The APSS 2000 liquid particle counting system sizes and counts particles in liquids, including parenterals. This solution meets all US, European and Japanese pharmacopoeia standards, including USP 788.

The APSS 2000 helps you meet regulations, such as USP 788, while using only a small sample size, which helps you minimise waste of expensive product.

While it is currently programmed for USP 788, the APSS-2000 Parenteral Particle Counter has recipe functions that allow it to adapt to future regulatory changes, helping you save money in the long-term while meeting requirements.

More than just a particle counter, the APSS-2000 System includes:

  • An SLS-1000 syringe sampler
  • LiQuilaz®eSeries light obscuration spectrometer
  • SamplerSight Pharma Software, allowing reports to meet 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 11 regulations for electronic records and signatures.

SamplerSight Pharma Software enables you to manage sampling requirements for batch-based operations while providing a comprehensive view of the batch information with histogram, time plot and tabular data presented in an easy-to-use format that is easily reported.

SamplerSight Pharma features a validatable, user-friendly, Windows-based software with context-sensitive help.
