CONTEXT: In countries where research budgets are meager as Argentina, the tendency to innovation and improvements in the designs prototypes "made in Argentina" marks a growing trend adopted by researchers. This paper presents a diffusion cell of original design, for release studies of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) from classical topical dosage forms, also includes the methodology for its optimization and validation. The objective was to evaluate and validate a system designed and to compare it to the Franz cells system. METHODS: Parameters, reproducibility and robustness were performed included factors as, stirring conditions, membrane stabilization treatment and temperature variation. Release and retention on membrane assay were performed using two different API and formulations. RESULTS: The method is reproducible and robust for the parameters tested. Release assays show that no significative difference with the Franz Cells system. Our system allows the simultaneous measurement of different parameters, representing an innovation on these methodologies. The LMC was used for assays of in vitro retention on membrane and the values obtained were reproducible and coincident whit values obtained for other authors. CONCLUSIONS: The system designed and the methodology employed, are acceptable for in vitro release studies. The device and method, has the characteristics required.
