Tamping-style capsule fillers
 
Q: How can we increase the efficiency of our tamping-style capsule fillers?
 
 
imageWhen operators set up tamping-style capsule fillers properly to tamp the powder, the equipment will create an evenly layered powder slug prior to filling a two-piece capsule with the slug. These fillers can also be set up to fill capsules with liquid, pellets, or tablets, but most capsules are filled with powder. The tamping process produces filled capsules with more accurate and consistent weights compared to dosator-style capsule fillers. You adjust the weight range by changing the depth of the tamping pins and the thickness of the dosing disc.

X-ray inspection of tablets and blister packages
 
Q: How can X-ray inspection ensure the integrity of tablets and their blister packages?
 
 
One broken tablet in a blister package of prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medication can immediately cause concern, calling into question not only the efficacy of that tablet but also the manufacturer's quality standards. The same is true when even one cavity in a blister pack is empty.

Call in the experts: The benefits of outsourcing product testing and analysis
 
 
In this article, experts explain why contract testing is a logical choice for many pharmaceutical manufacturers and discuss common formulation and process issues, as well as what to look for when choosing a company to perform contract testing services.
 
The demand for contract pharmaceutical analytical testing is on the rise. By 2025, the global market for pharmaceutical analytical testing outsourcing will be worth $9.6 billion, according to a report by Grand View Research [1]. Analytical testing may comprise a variety of services including but not limited to bioanalytical testing, method development and validation, and stability testing. Contract research organizations (CROs) specialize in analytical testing, but contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs) also have these capabilities and may even have dedicated analytical testing departments.

Flashing during tablet compression, part 3
 
Q: What causes protrusions around the edge of tablets after compression, and how can I prevent this from occurring?
 
imageA: Mike Beyl, Wilson Tool International, says:
 
In part 1 of this series, I explained that the protrusions that form along the tablet band during compression are called flashing, discussed flashing's impacts and causes, and recommended investing in a setting tool that can reduce tablet-press setup time and achieve a more consistent alignment of the upper punch in the die bore. In part 2, I discussed how properly designed tablets and tools can reduce excess pressure and wear that leads to more clearance and flashing. In this third installment of the series, I'll discuss how good tool-handling and maintenance methods can reduce flashing.
