    Outsourcing Solid Dose Manufacturing Trends In 2014

    In 2014, the contract manufacturing market for solid dosage forms is anticipated to be $19.6B, representing 58% of the total CMO market value of $33.7B. While the market value percentage for solid dose has been drifting downward — likely related to the shift towards biologics, which are more expensive to develop and manufacture — the propensity to outsource oral solid dosage forms continues to grow modestly.

    Dry Granulation And Its Application In Dietary Supplements Manufacturing

    The dietary supplement label contains information about the product, like its intended use, direction for use, safety information, and, in addition, it fully, clearly and accurately discloses each ingredient contained in the supplement. Therefore, it should be of importance for consumers to judge the quality of the dietary supplement but based on the label it is difficult to determine the performance, benefits and features like containing the proper amount of ingredients in such a way that their absorption and corresponding efficacy are guaranteed. The grade of quality depends on the production process, which involves the quality control of the manufacturer, the suppliers and other involved parties. By Martin Purpura
