AUTOPOL® V, Automatic Polarimeter For Demanding Laboratories
The AUTOPOL® V Automatic Polarimeter is designed for today’s FDA regulated analytical laboratories. Whether you are a Pharmaceutical, Nutraceutical or University Lab, the AUTOPOL® V has the standard measurement and compliance features you must have, including:
• TempTrol™ – Electronic cooling & heating from 15°-35°C
• Six Standard Wavelengths: 365nm, 405nm, 436nm, 546nm, 589nm and 633nm
• 21CFR11 Compliance: Electronic Signature and secure local electronic data storage
• Domestic 3-year warranty and 20-year support guarantee
• International warranty varies by country
• Standard Accessories: TempTrol™ NIST Traceable Quartz Standard (single rotation), TempTrol™ 100mm Polarimeter Cell, TempTrol™ Temperature Validation Cell, Built-In Sample Measurement Probe.
The Autopol® IV and V Use Rudolph’s Exclusive TempTrol™ Electronic Temperature Control System
The USP <781> requires optical rotation measurements at 25°C ± .5°C (unless another temperature is specified). The European Pharmacopoeia requires optical rotation measurements made at 20° ± .5°C (unless another temperature is specified).
Whatever your temperature control needs are, the Autopol® IV and the Autopol® V exclusive TempTrol™ System (Patent No. 6,717,665) makes your measurement in a few minutes without a waterbath or any type of water circulation.
The TempTrol™ System allows push-button temperature control of your 100mm cell, 200mm cell or Quartz Plate. Set the temperature, push “measure” and walk away. The Autopol® will heat or cool to a predefined temperature and then provide you with the result all in one easy step.
Patented TempTrol™ Technology Eliminates the Need for a Water Bath. Here is How the TempTrol™ System Works:
TempTrol™ cell with mating heating & cooling transfer surface manufactured with acid resistance materials: NEDOX™ and Peek™.
Temperature is selected via touch screen. Temperature selection of 20°C shown above.
Place the TempTrol™ cell in your TempTrol™ equipped Autopol® sample chamber to measure to within ±0.2°C of the USP, EP, JP or BP specified temperature (normally 20°C or 25°C ±0.5°C).
For improved temperature performance or when working with acids (HCl) use the measurement port in the body of the cell. This also allows the inlet and outlet ports to be capped to avoid evaporation, fumes and spillage.
TempTrol™ heating and cooling transfer surface
Rudolph provides a temperature validation cell with every TempTrol™ system. The temperature validation cell along with an optional NIST traceable thermometer is designed to validate the temperature control performance of the polarimeter and cell to ±0.2°C.
Fill 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance
The Autopol®’s 21CFR Part 11 software module is easily enabled through the user friendly touch screen.
This module gives you full compliance with:
• Electronic signature
• Access levels
• Internal write protected storage
• Unique passwords
• Write protected documents sent directly to server
• Audit trail
Autopol IV, 21CFR Part 11 is by external PC only
21CFR11 mode is enabled via the Set 21CFR11 button. After clicking the Enable 21CFR11 button, the user must also select to either Enable Operator, Enable Reviewer or both.
Add/Edit Users allows the creation of new 21CFR11 users, the ability to edit an existing user, and the ability to lock and unlock accounts.
Groups are used to determine the access permissions of the 21CFR11 users. When a group is added or edited, the administrator decides what menus the group will have access to in the Setup menu and sub-menus, and the 21CFR11 Administration Options menu and sub-menus.
Password Settings control the password policy used by the Autopol to authenticate users and whether the screen lock function is active and how long it takes for the screen lock to turn on.
Terminology allows the Administrator to customize the language of the Accept/Reject language that appears in the measurement report reviewed by a reviewer.
The Format Printing/Output menu lets the user control what information will be contained in the report, if the report will contain a logo image, the page orientation and margin settings and if the user will be prompted for a lot identifier and sample identifier when the measurements are being performed.
The AUTOPOL® IV and V by Rudolph – Simply the Best
The AUTOPOL® V Automatic Polarimeter Offers Acid Resistance and Traceable Quartz Plates.
- 6m HCl acid resistance: Silco Steel coating on the polarimeter chamber temperature transfer surface and a Hastelloy measurement cell with NIST certificate certifying optical path length.
- To meet the FDA’s latest position on measurement bracketing, the Autopol® V Plus comes with a NIST traceable quartz plate with three rotations: +0.998° Arc, +10.998° Arc, -10.000° Arc. Each rotation has a NIST certificate.
Automatic Polarimeter with Six Wavelengths and Only One Light Source
The AUTOPOL® V Automatic Polarimeter comes standard with six wavelengths: 365nm, 405nm, 436nm, 546nm, 589nm, 633nm. Wavelength selection is completely automatic and is accomplished by the push of a button. There are no lamps or filters to manually remove or insert.
The tungsten-halogen lamp employed in the AUTOPOL® V Polarimeter is a compact, reliable, low-cost, high intensity light source that allows any desired wavelength in the visible spectrum to be selected by means of a narrow band multilayer interference filter. The AUTOPOL® standard 10nm bandwidth is specified to permit high energy throughput and sensitivity for sample transmittances of only 0.01 % (O. D. = 4), while minimizing the effects of sample ORD and color.
Standard Accessories, Validation and Calibration
The AUTOPOL® V Polarimeter comes standard with the accessories, validation tools and automatic calibration functions necessary to ensure that the temperature control, temperature measurement and optical measurement processes are working correctly and reproducibly. All functions are accessed simply and conveniently through the AUTOPOL® V liquid sealed touchscreen.
