Abstract
A PROGRAM TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN AUTOMATIC, LASER-SCANNING SOLUBILITY-MONITORING SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. THE SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO REPLACE CURRENT MANUAL SOLUBILITY-TESTING PROCEDURES PERFORMED IN GOVERNMENT LABORATORIES, PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES, AND FOOD INDUSTRIES WITH A MORE ECONOMICAL AND EFFICIENT PROCEDURE. PHASE I EFFORTS WILL BE DIRECTED TO THE DESIGNING, CONSTRUCTION, AND DEMONSTRATION OF KEY SUBSYSTEMS OF THE PROPOSED SYSTEM. THESE INCLUDE A COMPACT MATERIAL HANDLER, A HIGH-PRECISION WEIGHING STAGE, A LASER-SCANNING SOLUBILITY-MONITORING SYSTEM, AND A CONTROL AND DATA PROCESSING SYSTEM. PHASE I PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE ALTERNATIVE SYSTEMS AND TO DEFINE THE FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND DESIGN CRITERIA FOR AN ADVANCED, AUTOMATIC,SOLUBILITY-MONITORING SYSTEM TO BE DEVELOPED IN PHASE II.
