For over a century pharmaceutical manufacturers struggled with powder compression problems such as capping and lamination, powder sticking to punch surfaces or die wall, and insufficient mechanical strength to withstand stress in downstream processing.
We thought you’d like to know that we have created a new laboratory tablet testing service to help you predict and avoid common manufacturing problems.
This gives you the peace of mind that your formulation works and your material is the same quality as previous batches.
This will speed up your manufacturing process, reduce material costs and save you time and money. The service is ideal for manufacturers of generic products and vitamin supplements.
Choose from three levels of material testing:
1. Gamlen Manufacturability Assessment
You send us your material samples and we will make a simple assessment of powder properties based on small batches of tablets compressed under tightly controlled conditions using the Gamlen D series Powder Compaction Analyzer.
The results will be compiled into a report and emailed to you.
2. Enhanced Manufacturability Assessment
The enhanced service offers all of the above plus a detailed analysis of powder properties including Heckel and Kawakita plots.
3. Advanced Manufacturability Assessment
Includes dry granulation evaluation (two enhanced tests)
If you have any specific requests or questions, then please reply using the website contact form.
