This article presents guided wave radar level measurement as an acceptable, less expensive alternate to load cell systems. By David Ladoski and Dan Klees
For many decades the only practical metric of airborne microbial contamination has been the colony forming unit (cfu). Adapting growth-based approaches for monitoring modern aseptic manufacturing processes has sometimes proven difficult. Although microbiologists have bemoaned the limitations of measuring only cfu, no alternative metric or technique has yet been adopted. In this article we will review one such alternative microbiological method, commonly called laser induced fluorescence (LIF).
Once it has discovered a new drug, a drug manufacturer has a limited amount of time to reap the rewards of its invention before its patent expires and generic products enter the market. Thus, speed is important.
Compression tooling and tablet press manufacturers are faced with ongoing challenges in the tablet manufacturing environments. Providing support in all aspects of the tablet compression process should be expected from your tooling and tablet press partner. These services should include: press operator training, maintenance/calibration services, quick delivery of replacement parts, tooling, tablet design and powder formulation support.
In many pharmaceutical processes, what works in the lab doesn’t always scale-up seamlessly into production; this is true in conical milling. Despite this, lab and pilot milling can still be a great indicator of scale-up output, and certain steps can be taken to maximize the likelihood of successful production. This white paper will aim to help you scale-up with minimum disruption or deviation. While there is no silver bullet, identifying potential pitfalls while understanding best practice can at least provide a logical road map for achieving milling success.
After multiple successful facility projects across the world, Extract Technology were approached by a major Pharmaceutical Company and given the challenge to update the older generation of containment equipment from 1990’s technology to the advanced technology available today.
To secure their position in an increasingly fierce market environment, pharmaceutical companies keep pushing the boundaries of their production capacities. Reaching that goal not only requires them to increase batch sizes. They must also optimize their existing manufacturing processes with state-of-the-art equipment and software systems while ensuring maximum safety for both products and operators. This is exactly what Bosch Packaging Technology offers its customers with tailor-made capsule filling lines backed by decades of experience in capsule filling processes and technology.
