Gamlen Tableting Ltd presents work on replacing the wet granulation step in the tableting process using the Gamlen Tablet Press. Wet granulation used by many companies in tablet manufacture, is a costly and time consuming process. Modern direct compression materials can now readily replace this stage improving the overall tableting development and manufacturing efficiency and saving time and costs.
At the recent APS Materials by Design conference held in Nottingham June 2011, Gamlen Tableting Ltd presented ground breaking work on rapid compressibility assessment of several direct compression materials and their feasibility for substituting the wet granulation stage. This work illustrated how the Gamlen Tablet Press can rapidly deliver such important information allowing the manufacturer to make informed decisions on the viability of replacing the wet granulation stage.
