Bosch Packaging Technology
A compact laboratory machine combines drying, granulating, and coating modules.

The Solidlab 2 laboratory device from Hüttlin and Manesty, pharmaceutical process technology suppliers that have been part of Bosch Packaging Technology since 2011, combines several process steps in a compact, modular laboratory machine. Modules for drying, granulating, and coating in the fluid bed, as well as tablet coating in the coater, can be used individually or in combination. The laboratory device includes peripheral systems, such as inlet and exhaust air handling, sensor technology, and a control system.

One Stop Critical
A carrier provides shippers with the ability to move temperature-sensitive freight on dry-van carriers.

CarrierDirect, which provides advisory services to logistics companies and carriers, partnered with One Stop Critical, which manufactures temperature-sensitive shippers and carriers, to launch the Critical Cube, a temperature-controlled carrier that holds a standard-sized pallet and has 77 cubic feet of loadable space. The Critical Cube allows companies to ship less-than-truckload (LTL) temperature-sensitive freight on dry-van carriers, eliminating the need to pay for a dedicated truck or to wait for a consolidated refrigerated-LTL carrier. The Critical Cube uses liquid carbon dioxide to maintain temperatures as low as -30 °F for up to five days. The technology is currently available for intra-California shipments, and will be introduced to other US geographies in late 2013 and early 2014.
