CoreRx launches FLEXITAB
Monday, November 7, 2011
CoreRx has further enhanced its offering by adding the Bosch Manesty FLEXITAB, a fully automated, single station tablet press with a multi-layer tablet function, giving it the unique capacity to produce multi-layer (up to three-layer) tablets using a minimal amount of material. Its variable punch displacement and dwell time can be set to simulate compression on any rotary press using compression forces up to100kN.
“CoreRx is continually assessing and investing in solutions to accelerate the manufacturing of our client’s clinical supplies, while ensuring quality at all times,” said Mark Licarde, CoreRx’s VP of manufacturing. Licarde added, “We will continue to add to capabilities in response to client requirements for preclinical and early phase combination product clinical GMP supply. The FLEXITAB decreases setup time and API use – generating significant cost savings to our clients.”
Able to produce 3-layer tablets, the Bosch Manesty FLEXITAB fully automated, single-station tablet press supports production of small batches. All parameters are adjustable, which allows for simulation of any rotary tablet press at any given speed. Hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders enable compression forces of 100 kN and rapid punch displacement. In addition, press includes TFT touch screen panel PC, PLC-based control system, and FLEXITAB software.
