42 Technology’s Sticky Web featured in PMPS
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer (PMPS) is a specialist journal designed to provide worldwide coverage of a range of topics relating to the pharmaceutical manufacturing and packaging sector.
In the Winter 2012 issue we discuss the 42 Technology Sticky Web technology which allows high speed printing of pharmaceutical powders.
Sticky web is a novel precision powder dispensing technology capable of accurately ‘printing’ 0.1 to 100mg of powdered active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) with a variety of particle size distributions onto edible or inert adhesive webs or surfaces. Accuracies are typically better than around 2.5 per cent and the approach can deliver commercial manufacturing speeds up to 600,000 doses per hour. The article looks at how the technology was first discovered, its promise and its progress towards commercialisation.
