Bent PEEK Cannula with Luer Adapter for 500ml Manual Sampling
Length: 7.75 inches (195mm) | Volume: 500ml | Outside Diameter: 1/8 inch 3.2mm

- Erweka compatible
- Through head mount cannulae are used with closed systems. The cannula is extra long and mounts on the top of the system. It is inserted through the drive head and into the vessel.
- Use with CANSTP-HR to ensure the sample is always taken from the same depth
Almost every dissolution test relies on samples being taken to produce a result. It is important that the sampling method does not adversely affect the accuracy of the dissolution test. Sampling errors are very common and are often the cause of erroneous results. The sampling position is critical but so too is the type of sampling cannula (also known as a probe) used.
Sampling Position – The sampling position is important particularly for tests with baskets as there can be a concentration proﬁle between the bottom of the vessel and the stirring element. It is less noticeable with paddles as the extra agitation provides for a more uniform ﬂow proﬁle. The sampling position is different for 500ml and 900ml tests. This can create problems for equipment that uses ‘through the shaft’ sampling.
Cannula Length – Cannulae vary in length from 4.75” (120mm) to 15” (380mm). These extended lengths are normally used for “through the head sampling” whereby the cannula passes through the drive head of the dissolution bath.
Cannula Material – The cannulae are made from either stainless steel or PEEK so that they do not adsorb or interfere with the active ingredient.
Stoppers – Cannulae can be used with stoppers during manual sampling to ensure that the sample is always taken from the same depth. Stoppers are attached to the cannulae and sit in a hole in the vessel cover. If these are to be used then it is important to get the stopper and cannula to match the vessel cover type or manufacturer. The range of self-tightening stoppers can be installed and positioned without the need for tools such as screwdrivers or
Selecting a Self-Tightening Cannula Stopper
Self-tightening cannula stoppers offer a convenient method of setting the cannula sampling position in accordance with USP 711. Adjustable cannula stoppers are available for Distek, Hanson and VanKel cannulae.
Since there are numerous conﬁgurations of cannulae and dissolution instruments in common use, the speciﬁc application should be reviewed to ensure correct stopper selection.
The two factors which determine the speciﬁc stopper choice are:
1) Cannula outside diameter
2) Stopper outside diameter
