Thermo Fisher Scientific and Glatt: Continuous twin-screw granulation and drying  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (Karlsruhe, Germany; www.thermoscientific.com) today announced a collaboration with integrated process technology provider Glatt Process Technology GmbH (Binzen, Germany; www.glatt.com) to deliver continuous twin-screw granulation and drying solutions for the pharmaceutical industry.
