Accurate and reliable measurement of tablet detachment and ejection forces using Gamlen Tablet Press

by Michael Gamlen and Dipankar Dey at Gamlen Tableting Limited The effect of lubricant concentration on tabletability, tablet ejection and detachment can be evaluated using the Gamlen Tablet Press. Lubricant effectiveness rank order varies between materials; some materials are better lubricated by sodium stearyl fumarate than by magnesium stearate. Detachment …

How to make better tablets using QbD
and the Gamlen Tablet Press

by Michael Gamlen (Gamlen Tableting) and Joe Domingue (SciMark International) The solution to reliably identifying and solving many tableting problems lies in the nature of a conventional tablet press. Single punch and rotary tablet presses work on a similar principle which is to compress material to a particular thickness. This …

Influence of physicomechanical properties of starches on their tabletability – A multivariate analysis

Out of the six different grades of starches studied PURE-DENT® B830 and SPRESS® B818 showed better tabletability regardless of similar MC and amorphous nature. The better tabletability of these two starches might be attributed to their better plasticization due to loosely bound associated water, and low elastic recovery in the …

Study shows Gamlen Tablet Press (GTP-1) accurately predicts tablet properties

Earlier this month Powder Technology published an article co-authored by the team at Gamlen Tableting and researchers at GSK UK. The article entitled “compression prediction accuracy from small scale compaction studies to production presses” examines how compaction and ejection force measurement using the revolutionary GTP-1 press at small scale can predict tablet properties on a production scale tablet press.
