API Pharma Milling Equipment

Make the right choice for API Milling

Pharma manufacturers know that particle size is crucial in affecting the properties of bioavailability and stability, especially when developing new drugs and treatments.  If manufacturers want some molecules to be more potent then they need to be able to achieve the finest of Particle Size Distribution (PSDs).

The Quadro team has vast experience in this area and has successfully enabled clients to achieve smaller particle sizes & tighter particle size distributions than are possible using standard competitive conical mills, hammer mills, or pin mills.  This equates to effective products, reduced waste, and increased profit margins.

The Importance Of Particle Size Distribution In Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Why is PSD Important in Pharma Milling?

When all the intensive research and development is completed on a new pharmaceutical drug, the next step on the road to manufacturing is to identify the optimal way to process the new active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) into a suitable dosage form. Critical to this step is ensuring tightly controlled particle size distributions.
