Application notes for the UPT include “Introducing Uniaxial Powder Testing” which compares the measurement time, equipment cost and applicability of uniaxial testing, shear cells, and other traditional testing techniques. “Offline Consolidation to Measure the uUYS of Powders”, focuses on use of the Consolidation Station to expose samples to closely controlled environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, consolidation pressure) away from the instrument, to boost measurement functionality and productivity.
Recent articles about the UPT support descriptions of the technique with data from studies illustrating its application. These include "Modern Powder Testing’, an article by Dr Katrina Brockbank, Head of Laboratory, which incorporates data demonstrating application of the UPT to a broad range of industrial materials.
Earlier in the year, we also presented (at IFPAC 2018) the results of a granulation study in which the UPT was used to scope the impact of water content and excipient ratio on granule properties. You can find this presentation here.
