Ensuring The Efficacy Of Probiotic Products
There is growing interest among consumers in verifying that the dietary supplements they take are safe and efficacious. The concern over whether consumers are getting the product as it is described on the label is rooted in one vital and transformative fact: probiotics are living organisms that are highly sensitive to humidity and oxygen. In the absence of proper handling and packaging, the efficacy of probiotic products can be compromised at any point of the packaging, storage and transportation process, inversely impacting shelf life and product viability and efficacy for the consumer.

In-Situ, Non-Destructive Surface Area Measurement For The Optimal Application Of Lyophilization
A key focus of this paper is the relevant measurement of surface area, with experimental data demonstrating the performance and value of novel instrumentation for in-situ characterization.
Preventing Sticking And Picking Through Tablet Design
Sticking or picking issues are often not detected. Prevent unanticipated problems during scale-up and full-scale production by considering tablet compression issues before tablet designs are finalized.
Breaking The Misconceptions Of Maximum Compression Force
With proper formulation development and tablet design the tablet press operator should be able to manufacture quality tablets without exceeding the tooling’s maximum compression force rating.
Data Gathering And Analysis Necessary In New Tablet Development
A significant concern in tablet manufacturing is speed to market. Moving too quickly, however, may cause delayed production, lost product, and missed deadlines. To reduce potential headaches, companies are embracing the principles of Quality by Design (QbD) and utilizing automated data gathering and tablet analysis during research and development. This allows organizations to reduce product development and delivery stress and loss.
Manufacturer Finds Solution For Transporting HPAPI Product with Containment
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.
Understanding The Importance Of Punch Length And Cup Depth
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.
