Molecular Profiles Expands Capsule Capability
Molecular Profiles has expanded its capsule filling capability following significant investment into new equipment at its clinical manufacturing site in the United Kingdom.
Modularity Creates Flexible Manufacturing Systems
Flexibility, which involves the ability to quickly change product capacity or even product type to meet market demand, is increasingly important. In new construction or renovation, modular process skids and modular buildings create this flexibility. Experts discuss trends and challenges.
Using Ultrasonic Cleaning for Equipment and Tooling
Ultrasonic cleaning of solid-dosage tooling and other equipment, such as filling-machine valves and nozzles, is more effective than hand cleaning.
Lean Manufacturing Improves Process Efficiency
Manufacturers can identify and reduce waste using tools such as value-stream mapping.
Comparing Manufacturing Process Options
A techno-economic profiling method supports pharmaceutical process development by helping identify the best manufacturing approach.

Mixing Technologies in the Pharmaceutical & Medical Industries
This white paper presents an overview of mixing technologies implemented across many of today?s highly competitive pharmaceutical and medical industries, as well as new equipment designs that are increasingly being recognized as potential solutions to prevailing mixing challenges. Mixing applications falling within the broad spectrum of mass produced pharmaceutical goods and medical devices are too many and complex to discuss in detail; hence this paper will touch on a few general classifications as well as a few examples within that mixing category. Phase and viscosity are used as bases for classification.
Clinical Trials Success Story: Monitoring Temperature
A clinical trials facility that conducts research for global sponsors was at risk of losing temperature data to monitoring equipment failure or lost records. If a recording device lost power during a power outage, or the battery died, the data would be lost forever. Read how they solved the issue.
Graceful Scale-Up of Mixing Systems
When acquiring a process that involves one or several mixing steps, foresight for scale-up or expansion remains to be a subtle but important factor for long-term success. As production requirements grow, your ability to shift gears smoothly, quickly, and efficiently is critical because it can spell the difference between an economical transition and a financial disaster.
Glass Delamination in Pharmaceutical Vials
There have been several recent drug recalls related to the appearance of glass particles in pharmaceutical solutions. In an effort to understand this phenomenon, we present the use of several surface analytical techniques to investigate the effects of pH on glass storage vials and the subsequent delamination of surface layers.
