Cracking Tablets

A manufacturer of tablets was finding that certain batches of what were purported to be identical tablets were acting in a very undesirable way compared to the standard performance. Moreover, the different batches were causing radical problems further into the manufacturing process. All tablets were tested on the traditional tablet testers and were reported to be identical in performance. The Tablets were then tested with a TA.XT2 Texture Analyzer to measure any differences in hardness.
