IMD-W™ Microbial Challenge Test Results
This fact sheet provides a summary of microbial test results obtained with the IMD-WTM-series instantaneous microbial detection™ system for water.
Blending And Drying High Density Powders
For years, the challenge of blending extremely dense slurries, then drying the batch to powder form, has been a job for the traditional vacuum dryer with a rotating vessel.
ICH Q2 – the Challenge of Measuring Total Organic Carbon In Modern Pharmaceutical Water Systems
Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is one of the quality attributes defined in the European and USA pharmacopoeias for pharmaceutical waters. Modern water treatment systems can deliver such high purity water that TOC levels can be consistently close to zero and very difficult to measure with any accuracy. This paper discusses some of the challenges when using TOC analysers to demonstrate pharmacopoeial TOC level compliance for modern water systems in the light of the ICH Q2 document from the International Conference on Harmonisation.
Rouge & Biofilm: Compounding Cleaning Challenges
Rouge may facilitate the development of more tenacious biofilms. Both rouge and biofilm represent cleaning and decontamination challenges to manufacturers. By Michael Gietl and Paul Lopolito
Recommended Mixing Equipment For Tablet Coatings
Designed for high-speed powder dispersion, the Ross Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Mixer is well proven in the preparation of tablet coatings. This technology features a unique rotor/stator assembly that draws solids into a high shear zone for rapid mixing with the liquid vehicle.
Variability In Sterility Test Processes And The Benefits Of Modular Workstations
A review of the current operational practices that incorporate sterility testing and provides an insight into the role of hydrogen peroxide vapor bio-decontamination and continuous particle monitoring.
