Can You Syringe A BioScience Material?
Bioscience engineering is producing an array of new materials for use in the human body. Dental adhesives, ophthalmic fluids, bone joint fillers are but a few of the examples. Physical property testing is needed to qualify the performance of these materials, both in terms of how they handle as well as their final application within the body.
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Medical Device Package Inspection Case Study
Medical device manufacturing is a labor intensive process, requiring operator involvement from manufacturing through final inspection of products.
Pharmaceutical Company Cuts Packaging Costs
In tough economic times, First Priority, manufacturer of generic veterinary pharmaceutical products, decided it was time to take a hard look at where they could cut costs without compromising on efficiencies and quality of their products.
QC Testing: Quality Control Methods That Make A Difference
By Robert McGregor, Global Marketing and High End Product Manager, Brookfield Engineering Laboratories, Inc.
How do you bring consistency to QC testing? Pharmaceutical products that meet manufacturability criteria and provide high level consumer satisfaction undergo a battery of tests before being distributed to the consumer. Using affordable instrumentation to perform QC tests, which certify that tablets, capsules, elixirs, ointments, etc. have the right physical properties, is essential for today’s successful business.
Striving For Label Perfection In Clinical Trials
No other labeling process in the pharmaceutical industry is as complex as clinical trial labeling. Clintrak Clinical Labeling Services knows this first hand and has been committed to finding a way to reduce the amount of time and money spent on proofreading in order to improve their process.
Viscosity Flow Curve Tells All
Characterizing any material for flow behavior involves testing it over a range of shear rates relevant to how it is processed in manufacturing or how it is used by the consumer. Ointments, for example, are used to coat human body parts like skin, lips, finger/toe nails, hair, eyeballs, etc. The coating action is such that the medicinal mixture, once applied to the surface of the object, spreads as it is rubbed into place. Therefore, a relevant viscosity test would employ shear rates that mimic this type of spreading action.
Risk Mitigation With Pouch Packaging Inspection
A major pharmaceutical company in North America with manufacturing in the US, Canada and abroad had a problem, which was not unique to them.
