Fast, flexible filling of powder into blisters
μ-fill powder micro-dosing module is a flexible filling solution for the accurate filling of blisters for dry powder inhaler devices (DPIs).
The module integrates with blister forming and sealing equipment for precision filling at a range of dose weights from 5 to 20mg and speeds suitable for early stage clinical development through to production. As well as blisters, the system could be tailored to fill capsules, cartridges or rigid containers for similar requirements.
Powder is dosed into a continuous matrix of cavities. The unique ‘drum slice’ design provides a very flexible and scalable solution. The ability to vary the dose ‘in-process’ with just a single set of tooling allows the technology to be applied at early stage development with rapid scale-up into production just by modifying the number of lanes of blisters.
The module is designed to enable rapid clean-down and product change-over and μ-fill can operate on either an ‘intermittent/indexing’ basis or as a ‘continuous motion’ machine. This means it can interface with a wide variety of other standard blister machines.
