Bespoke testing packages

Testing packages tailored to your company’s needs

In addition to our USP <1062> and complete compaction analysis packages we offer a range of other advanced material testing services. We would be happy discuss to options with you to help you choose the right testing package for your project. Our extensive experience in powder compaction and tableting means we can no only generate data for you but also interpret the results. We will work with you to apply the knowledge gained from our testing  to your tableting processes.

Testing options include:

  • Compaction analysis
  • Lubrication analysis
  • Elastic recovery
  • Kawakita analysis
  • Heckel analysis
  • Friability testing
  • Intrinsic dissolution testing
  • BCS permeability measurements
  • True density by He pycnometry
  • Granulation studies

Sample Testing Service

Place your compaction analysis order here. Then simply send us your samples and we’ll do the rest! Upon completion, you will receive a report prepared by one of our in-house experts who will be more than happy to discuss the data with you in the context of your project.

USP Chapter <1062> Tablet Compression Characterization defines the key Critical Quality Attributes for manufactured tablets as compressibility, tabletability and compactibility. We measure these parameters for your sample to provide you with useful compaction data. Using our unique powder assessment system, we will help you better understand your APIs, excipients formulations by meeting USP <1062> recommendations.

  • Compactibility
  • Compressibility
  • Tabletability
  • Lubrication (detachment and ejection stress profiles)
  • Elastic Recovery
  • Formulation comparisons using Sawai and G-ratio plots

We not only generate data but also provide an in-dept analysis and interpretation of the data and how it relates to your project.

In addition to the full compaction analysis testing, this service also provides Heckel, Kawakita, Young’s Modulus and Yield Stress data for your samples. We draw on our extensive pharmaceutical compaction experience to support your use of this data with trouble shooting manufacturing problems, change control projects and formulation development.
