The University of Iowa Pharmaceuticals offers a full range of contract pharmaceutical services including solid dose pharmaceutical manufacturing.
The University of Iowa Pharmaceuticals’ (UIP) Solid Dosage Formulation Products area has four suites: one suite is dedicated to tablet and capsule coating, two suites are dedicated to the handling of potent/cytotoxic compounds, and one suite is divided into four separate manufacturing rooms and is designed for handling less potent/toxic materials.
The Solid Dosage Formulation Products Group has the capability to produce tablet and capsule dosage forms using a variety of processes. Batch sizes can range from a few hundred to the hundreds of thousands of dosages units, depending on the dosage form unit weight and formulation blend density.
Processing techniques available to prepare products include:
Once dosage forms are produced, UIP can sort them by weight to ensure the weight of every dosage unit is within the specified weight range. UIP has the ability to package finished products into bottles or bulk containers and apply labeling as desired. Clinical kits can be assembled and materials shipped directly to clinical sites. UIP is fully capable of preparing comparator products via a variety of means.
