A versatile extruder for pharma applications

The Pharma parallel co-rotating twin-screw extruder is designed specifically for pharmaceutical applications to minimize material costs, be easier to use, and optimize space. To achieve this, the benchtop extruder uses a minimal amount of sample material and features a user-friendly touchscreen with integrated feeder control. The extruder has a throughput of 20 g/h to 2.5 kg/h, and is easily convertible from hot-melt extrusion to twin-screw granulation applications. The GMP (good manufacturing practice)-compliant device can be used for drug-development applications, including drug delivery systems, implants, tablets and granules. The compact design makes it suitable for use in glove boxes. — Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Karlsruhe, Germany
