  1. Manufacturer Finds Solution For Transporting HPAPI Product with Containment
    7/10/2019

    A client was in need of a containment enclosure for an analytical weighing and solution-preparation operation involving Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (HPAPI) in powder form. Their goal was to transfer product from an enclosure to another enclosure. read how Flow Sciences used a recently developed containment device and augmented to fit the specific needs of the client.

  2. Understanding The Importance Of Punch Length And Cup Depth
    4/4/2019

    This paper describes how to understand punch length, how to measure it correctly, and how wear affects length and tablet consistency. It also addresses the importance of specifying cup-depth tolerances.

  3. Venting Fume Hood Base Cabinets — A Better Way
    3/27/2019

    Frequently, companies have used fume hood exhaust to ventilate hood base cabinets. There is both the need for this practice and the designs for them are frequently not well thought-out. 

  4. The Keys To Superior Containment In Compounding Applications
    3/27/2019

    This paper reviews why very bad things happen when either quantity or purity of Highly Potent Active Pharmaceuticals is not properly maintained during the compounding process. Additionally, when highly potent active pharma ingredients are not effectively contained, workers may be adversely affected.

  5. How To Increase The Solubility And Bioavailability With Hot Melt Extrusion?
    3/22/2019

    When executed properly, HME advances poorly soluble compounds in the development pipeline, without adding delays, cost, or significant post-processing activities, and can scale to commercial manufacturing.

  6. Fluid Bed Granulation And Melt Granulation In Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
    3/19/2019

    Understanding and being able to control granulation is essential to the production of high quality pharmaceuticals. Fluid bed granulation and melt granulation can be tightly regulated to produce uniform material with a specified particle size therefore affording superior process reproducibility and better process control than many other granulation techniques.
