I Holland has announced the TSAR Predict service, which offers a solution to stop tablet tooling sticking problems, the company reports. The service examines the API or main component of a formulation and prepares a solution by reviewing factors including Van Der Waals, capillary action and morphology. The service was developed after the completion of a two-year Tableting Science Anti-Stick Research (TSAR) project in collaboration with the University of Nottingham's School of Pharmacy and professionals from the Laboratory of Biophysics and Surface Analysis in the UK. The aim of the project was to investigate and solve the universal tablet-manufacturing problem of sticking. The information has now resulted in a service that forecasts the correct anti-stick PharmaCote coating solution for any formulation.
