NextPharma has installed a ModuC LS IPC encapsulation/over-encapsulation filling machine at its Clinical Trials Services Center in Göttingen, Germany. The new machine is fully automated and capable of filling and over-encapsulating a range of solid and liquid products, with filling stations for powders, granules, pellets, tablets, capsules and micro-tablets. The filling stations can be operated individually or together for a range of filling possibilities. The company can now encapsulate and over-encapsulate as many as 20,000 units per hour.
Sean Marett, managing director, NextPharma Technologies, Product Development Services (PDS), said, “This new machine compliments our already extensive Clinical Trials Services capabilities in Göttingen. As clinical trials become more complex, we are pleased to be in a position to meet strong market demand for fast, efficient and accurate encapsulation and over-encapsulation of investigational medicinal products and their comparators for both large and small clinical trials.”
