How to make better tablets using QbD
and the Gamlen Tablet Press

by Michael Gamlen (Gamlen Tableting) and Joe Domingue (SciMark International) The solution to reliably identifying and solving many tableting problems lies in the nature of a conventional tablet press. Single punch and rotary tablet presses work on a similar principle which is to compress material to a particular thickness. This…

Influence of physicomechanical properties of starches on their tabletability – A multivariate analysis

Out of the six different grades of starches studied PURE-DENT® B830 and SPRESS® B818 showed better tabletability regardless of similar MC and amorphous nature. The better tabletability of these two starches might be attributed to their better plasticization due to loosely bound associated water, and low elastic recovery in the…
