In spray drying, a liquid feed (solution or suspension) is sprayed into a hot gas stream with the intent to isolate products in a solid-form state as well-defined powder. By application of spraying, the liquid evolves as small droplets with precisely defined volume(s). These droplets are then transported with the gas flow along a drying chamber (referred to as 'flight time'). During the flight time, the solvent evaporates from the droplets until only residual solids remain.

Batch-to-batch variability during the crystallization of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) can have a profound impact on both safety and efficacy of the final drug formulation, and direct business and cost implications for both the API manufacturer and downstream drug-formulation partners.

Isolators have been around the pharmaceutical industry since the early 1980s, and in the nuclear industry (glovebox technology) since the 1950s. The intent of isolators is to create an airtight barrier or enclosure around a piece of equipment or process that provides absolute separation between the operator and product.

The core business of pharmaceutical companies is geared toward research, manufacturing, sales, and marketing. However, when equipment used for the purpose of research and manufacturing, and even assets such as employee computers, have reached the end of their useful life, they oftentimes wind up sitting idle and taking up space, or are disposed of in an inefficient way.
