CoreRx has added the Bosch Manesty Flexitab, a fully automated, single station tablet press with a multi-layer tablet function, which produces multi-layer tablets (as many as three layers) 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 as high as 100kN.
The single-station tablet press supports production of small batches and all parameters are adjustable, allowing for simulation of any rotary tablet press at any given speed, according to the company. Hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders enable compression forces of 100 kN and rapid punch displacement.
“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 vice president of manufacturing. “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.”
