  • Can You Syringe A BioScience Material?
    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.

    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.

  • 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
    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.

  • Rupture Test: A Quick and Easy Way to Avoid Soft Gel Capsule Failure

    When soft gel capsules rupture during production, packaging or subsequent handling, the damage is oftentimes more extensive than just the single capsule that fails. When consumed by patients, if the active ingredients in soft gel capsules fail to escape as designed at the appropriate time (by rupture, dissolution, or melting), then the product is a failure. Both types of problems are due to non-conforming capsule film strength. How can you predict these types of problems before they occur? Performing a simple rupture test is the quickest way to avoid these potential disasters.
