Your quick route to manufacturing small batches of tablets under tightly controlled conditions


Unique benefits include:

Quick and easy to use with tiny amounts of material
Improves tablet manufacturing process
Very low wastage rates, normally less than 1%
Being able to check product quality prior to putting batches onto production presses
Cheaper than compaction force simulator
Can be used in controlled humidity environment
Saves time, money and materials

Using the Gamlen M series you’ll be able to:


Quickly compare formulations
Test small quantities of material down to 10 mg
Manufacture preclinical and phase 1 product
Ideal for investigating tableting problems



Manufacture of test product batches
Formulation comparisons
Excipient compatibility samples
Manufacture of phase one clinical trials material

Quick and easy to operate


The Gamlen M series offers a quick route to the manufacture of small batches of tablets under tightly controlled conditions.

Sample powders (we recommend using the GamPette – accuracy ±2% or better for most materials).



  1. Manufacturing rate approximately 100-180 tablets per hour.
  2. The product can be manufactured under completely controlled compaction conditions including compaction rate and compaction force (all tablets) and temperature and humidity (when used with glove box).
  3. Doses as low as 10 mg, lower in some cases.
  4. Product yield essentially 100% – NO LOSS of valuable or scarce products.
  5. Fracture measurement- the press can change mode to hardness tester to measure tablet tensile strength.

GamPette-cutout-yellow-powderThe GamPette


We recommend using the GamPette to dispense accurate quantities (better than 2%) of powder into the die reproducibly.

The GamPette is a hand held powder pipette that accurately dispenses solids, comprising a dispensing handle and a controller unit. Tip sizes are available to accommodate a wide range of powder volumes. Powder is drawn into the pipette tip in the handle under vacuum and then expelled under light positive pressure.
