EncapsulatingSolid Dosage Form products

The University of Iowa Pharmaceuticals’ (UIP) Solid Dosage Form 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, with four separate manufacturing rooms, is designed for handling less potent/toxic materials. 

 

 

 

 

  • Each manufacturing room has its own gowning/entry way that opens from a central staging area. 
  • Differential air pressures and single pass air, along with other measures including cleaning verification, are used to prevent cross-contamination. 
  • Special protective suites, wireless intercoms, and supplied air respirators are used to protect employees from exposure to potent/toxic materials.  
  • The Solid Dosage Forms area is supported with a clean, dry compressed air system and a hot loop USP Purified Water system. 
  • All incoming air is HEPA filtered and humidity controlled and exhausted air is double HEPA filtered.

 

Tablet PressThe Solid Dosage Form 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 dosage units depending on the dosage form unit weight and formulation blend density.  Processing techniques available to prepare products include:

  • Screening, Milling or Micronizing
  • Roller Compaction
  • Low or High Shear Wet Granulation
  • Fluid Bed Granulation or Coating
  • Fluid Bed or Conventional Drying
  • Holt Melt Capsule Filling
  • Tablet or Capsule Pan Coating
  • Low or High Shear Blending
  • Capsule Banding

 

V-BlendingOnce dosage forms are produced, UIP can weight sort them 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.
