New Fluid Bed

UIP purchased a Vector Lab-1 fluid bed processing unit for use in the Solid Dosage Forms Department.  This unit has the capability to perform top spray granulation and Wurster coating operations. While not purchased with rotor capability, this feature can be added if needed.  This unit has been fully validated and has already been used to process a number of batches of product.  UIP personnel have extensive fluid bed experience working with other fluid beds from both Glatt Air Techniques and Vector.  The purchased unit complements our existing Vector Mini Fluid Bed.
