SolidLab 1 – Syntegon’s innovative tabletop fluid bed system

Syntegon is excited to announce that we will be live and in-person for the AAPS 2021 PHARMSCI 360 show from October 17-20th at the Pennsylvania Convention Center! Our booth will feature one of our most innovative, and advanced table-top fluid bed systems on the market, our SolidLab 1. Alongside the SolidLab 1, we will have some of our experts in the booth to answer any questions about our full OSD product portfolio, including going over our unique features on the SolidLab 1. Syntegon has been developing cutting-edge fluid-bed equipment for well over 30 years with our Hüttlin team of experts in our Schopfheim, Germany facility. The revolutionary design of our fluid beds produces the most technologically advanced and efficient fluid-bed processes in the industry. Let’s take a quick look at some of the reasons why we granulate, as well as the key features of our SolidLab 1 that will be showcased at AAPS.

Fluid-bed wet granulation offers some very distinct advantages for OSD manufacturers in both the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries. The ultimate goal of a robust fluid-bed granulation process is to allow your tablet presses and capsule fillers to perform at the highest level possible, while maintaining optimal yields batch after batch. In addition to the increased yields of a properly granulated product, one of the most important improvements an OSD manufacturer will notice is a drastic reduction in costs. Granulating in-house can ultimately eliminate a company’s reliance on suppliers and allows utmost control of product from raw powder through final packaging. Properly granulated product increases flow, compressibility and bulk density, while also reducing fines and segregation. These are the primary reasons we granulate, so let’s now look at the functions offered on Syntegon’s SolidLab 1 and how granulation is just one of seven available functions you can utilize on our table-top fluid bed system.

The Syntegon SolidLab 1 (SL1) can granulate batches from 0.05-1 kg, making this machine perfectly sized for feasibility studies. The SolidLab 1 offers seven total processing functions within the same unit, allowing for: mixing, drying, granulating, powder coating, pellet coating, tablet coating (drum coater attachment), and blending (multi-mix drum attachment). The small batch size allows the operator to truly examine and understand each recipe and make adjustments as needed. Every parameter of the granulation process is recorded by the operating software and all changes are electronically documented. The SolidLab 1 is fitted with options to spray from the bottom or the top, depending on your processing needs. All of our fluid beds are fitted with a patented three-component nozzle as well, which allows for optimum spray rates and superior cleanability.

We look forward to showcasing our innovative SolidLab 1 October 17 – 20, 2021 at AAPS PharmSCI 360 in the Pennsylvania Convention Center. If you are unable to join in-person, please contact Syntegon through our website and schedule a virtual live machine demonstration and discussion with one of our product experts.
