Parteck MXP polyvinyl alcohol-based (PVA) excipient for
use in hot-melt extrusion enhances bioavailability of poorly
soluble APIs. It remains stable at temperatures in excess of
200>C and is suitable for immediate- and sustained-released
formulations with API loads of 30 percent or more. PVA-
based product has well characterized melt viscosity, con-
tributes to strong tablets that resist alcohol and minimize risk
of dose dumping, is considered GRAS by FDA, and complies
with USP, EP, and JP monographs. Excipient will be added
to company's Emprove program that provides online techni-
cal and regulatory information about its products.

Single-station tablet press
Adamus One single-station tablet press for R&D produces
single- and multi-layer tablets using small amounts of mater-
ial. It accepts both TSM and EU B and D tooling and com-
presses tablets as large as 25 millimeters in diameter using as
much as 100 kilonewtons of force; maximum fill depth is 20
millimeters. Press measures compression and ejection force
and displays results on digital meter above compression area.
It operates manually or semi-automatically.

RA802 benchtop analyzer combines Raman spectroscopy
and imaging technology to accelerate chemical and physical
analysis of tablets, including their composition, structure, and
API distribution and particle size. LiveTrack focus-tracking
feature enables you to analyze samples with uneven, curved,
or rough surfaces quickly and without sample preparation. It
analyzes intact, split, or sliced tablets, and by continuously
adjusting sample height, it produces 3D chemical maps of
tablet surface. Nondestructive analyzer also evaluates pow-
ders, granules, and liquids.
