The new patented steam cleaning method from Gloss Technologies that is build inside the DVC-24 allows quick and easy dissolution vessel cleaning. Since the vessels can remain inside the dissolution tester, risks of accidents such as glass breakage or contamination due to spilling are completely avoided. With a short start-up time of less than seven minutes and vessel cleaning within 20 seconds, the DVC-24 greatly speeds up the remachining process of the dissolution tester. Thanks to its light-weight and mobile design, the DVC-24 can be used in every laboratory and with every dissolution tester, regardless of the equipment manufacturer.
To guarantee reliable cleaning results, it is possible to qualify the cleaning method, complete with reference tablets and qualification documents.

Unique cleaning with steam
The DVC-24 is ready for use in less than 7 minutes and can run up to 24 cleaning cycles with one filling (20 seconds/vessel).
Universal vessel cover
The vessel cover guarantees compatibility with all common USP dissolution vessels and prevents waste backflush and steam leakage during the cleaning process.
The DVC-24 offers a qualification method including qualification protocol and reference tablets for qualifying your vessel cleaning with comprehensive documentation.
Increased laboratory productivity
Vessels can be quickly and flexibly cleaned in only 20 seconds and due to integrated vessel pre-heating test resumption can be speeded up as well.
No unnecessary vessel removal
Thanks to the on-site cleaning unnecessary removal, repositioning and recalibration of vessels as well as potential damages can be minimized.
Improved compliance with USP 711
DVC-24 helps to ensure compliance with USP 711, according to which vessels always have to be used in the same position in the dissolution tester
Patented steam cleaning method
Symmetrically sprayed steam with its high solving properties is non-toxic and shows no significant carry-over effects (as shown in the diagram on the right). The quick availability of steam makes it the perfect cleaning agent, without the risk to damage the vessels.
Versatile & individually adaptable
The DVC-24 offers three different cleaning programs for different levels of contamination and vessel volumes. The device is suitable for vessels made out of glass or plastic with 500 ml*, 1 liter or 2 liters*. Granules, pellets or tablet fragments with a diameter of up to 3 mm can be easily soaked up. For dissolution media with surfactants such as sodium lauryl sulfate, we recommend adding an anti- foaming agent, e.g. the specially developed DVC-24 anti-foaming solution*.
Automatic cleaning steps
Quick and easy cleaning in just a few steps.
- Complete removal of dissolution media from the vessel via vacuum.
- Vessel cleaning by spraying steam symmetrically against the inner vessel wall.
- Additional vacuum is generated for removing steam and drying the vessels.
- What remains is a completely clean dissolution vessel.
