Idifarma has acquired a Bosch GKF-702 capsule filling machine that can manufacture 3000 to 42,000 capsules per hour.

Spanish CDMO, Idifarma, announced that it has invested in an automated capsule filling equipment. The Bosch GKF-702 capsule filling machine can manufacture 3000 to 42,000 capsules per hour. The GKF-702 features a “lab kit” that enables the use of the machine during pharmaceutical development, so that APIs are used more efficiently and wastage is reduced.

 

The new equipment will be installed at the CDMO’s EU-GMP approved plant in Pamplona, Spain, in early 2017. This investment expands Idifarma’s GMP manufacturing offering. Other equipment already installed at Idifarma’s GMP plant include a Hüttlin Oyster high-shear mixer and dryer for wet granulation processes, bin blenders with capacity up to 70 kg, and a Clinipack IMA blistering machine, with the ability to work with Alu/Alu or any thermo-formable material.
