Pharma 11 - Unique, flexible twin-screw compounder for hot melt extrusion and twin-screw granulation


In the early development of a new drug,

research and development formulation

scientists face the challenge that only a

small amount of expensive API (Active

pharmaceutical ingredient) is available

for experiments.

The Thermo Scientific Pharma 11

compounder provides cost-effective

extrusion capabilities from a material

and labor perspective requiring sample

sizes of just 20 grams of material.

Its parallel 11 mm twin-screws and

compact design which is fully scalable

with the Thermo Scientific standalone

pharmaceutical compounding systems,

enables researchers to obtain results

relevant to the process and even

perform small scale production.
