Small-scale tablet presses
 
Q: Can a small tablet press provide the most recent tablet-compression technology?
 
 
imageWhile tablet-press innovation has traditionally centered on large-scale production equipment, the industry's focus is increasingly on smaller-scale, mid-range models that can support product development, scale-up, technology transfer, clinical batch manufacturing, small and medium batch production, and continuous manufacturing. Given those demands, small-scale tablet presses require sophisticated technology and advanced features to provide the flexibility to work effectively and efficiently in a diverse range of production environments and applications.

Capsule filler performance
 
Q: How can we avoid needing to stop and clean our automatic capsule filler when encapsulating a sticky formulation?
 
A: Jason Belz, Syntegon, says:
 
imagePharmaceutical manufacturers frequently find that a capsule filler will run better with some formulations than others. To reduce sticking and maximize operating time and yields with a difficult formulation, they will often have the product-contact parts polished or try using parts made of alternative materials. Before taking such steps, however, you should establish a baseline of performance, which will allow you to measure your success and understand how any changes impact overall costs.

Effects of different cleaning agents on the appearance, smell, and taste of softgel capsules
 
Wenming Zeng, Denise Doerflein Fulk, Lana L. Woshnak,
and Susan Hazels Mitmesser, Pharmavite
 
This article describes a study investigating the effects of different cleaning agents on the appearance, smell, and taste of softgel capsules in a multivitamin-mineral-fish oil product. The study compares the effectiveness of mineral oil, medium chain triglycerides (MCT) oil, mineral oil with 1 percent lecithin, and MCT oil with 1 percent lecithin at cleaning residue from softgel capsules.
