Will your product make a strong but porous tablet? Maximising tabletability is a key objective for formulation and process development.
Is your product at risk of over-compaction? Products with very high density are much more likely to result in capping. They are also slower to dissolve and over-compaction can introduce flaws weakening the tablets
Measurement of detachment (take-off) force and ejection force gives acts as an early warning system for picking, sticking and capping. The Dashboard software will help you optimise formulation lubrication.
Is your formulation prone to capping? As the tablet emerges during ejection, the section of the tablet outside the die undergoes elastic recovery and expands. Excessive elastic recovery at this stage can cause capping.
VISUAL REPRESENTATION OF FORMULATION/PROCESS CHANGES
With the Gamlen Dashboard software you will be able to evaluate formulation and process changes at a glance and easily compare the compaction behaviour of your APIs, excipients and formulations.
