External spray lubrication
 
Q: Can a loss-in-weight feeder deliver lubricants directly to a tablet press for external spray lubrication?
 
 
imageTablet formulations typically include a mixture of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and excipients, including lubricants that reduce friction between the tablet and the tablet press tooling as the press compacts the tablet and ejects it from the die. This reduction in friction helps to minimize wear on punches and dies as well as damage to tablets during ejection.

Q: What are the tablet press settings and options that are critical to successful minitablet production?
 
 
imagePart 1 of this series discussed the formulation characteristics of minitablets—flowability and compactibility—as well as the effects of tablet shapes and cup profiles on their manufacture. Part 2 of the series examines tablet press settings and options that can help you address minitablet production challenges related to fill, compression force monitoring, lower punch travel, and tablet ejection.

Pharma's move toward small-batch processing
 
John S. Ross, Mayne Pharma
 
In the pharmaceutical industry, batch manufacturing has long been standard practice. Making batches bigger drove down unit cost because of high fixed costs on a per-batch basis. Historically, market demand has supported this strategy, but bigger batch sizes are no longer better.
