Fully scalable Thermo Scientific Pharma 11 extruder used for pharmaceutical research.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. will feature its new Thermo Scientific Pharma 11 parallel co-rotating twin-screw extruder at the 2012 AAPS conference.

The 11 mm extruder is designed specifically for pharmaceutical applications to minimize material costs, be easier to use and optimize laboratory space.

To achieve this, the benchtop Pharma 11 uses a minimal amount of sample material (20 g) and features a user-friendly touchscreen with integrated feeder control.

To deliver performance as requested by today’s pharma developers, Thermo Fisher, for the first time, offers a complete strandline, containing air-cooled conveyor belt and adjustable pelletizer, all with the convenient footprint of a standard fumehood.

Today’s researchers and scientists face multiple challenges, from resource constraints to limited lab space and budgets. Pharma 11 meets these challenges head-on by delivering a small, simple-to-use and scalable extruder.

“Since its introduction six months ago, our customers have extensively tested Pharma 11 in real-life applications. And, time after time, researchers and scientists have confirmed the tagline ‘Small, Simple, Scalable’ in every aspect,” said Charndeep Khattar, Director product line Process/Pharma Instruments at Thermo Fisher.

Khattar continued, “With its compact footprint and minimal sample material use, Pharma 11 simplifies the testing process and enables scientists to focus on delivering world-class pharmaceutical research. It is no wonder that the number of Pharma 11 extruders deployed worldwide today has exceeded all expectations.”

The new Pharma 11 extruder features a throughput of 20 g/h to 2.5 kg/h and is easily convertible from hot melt extrusion (HME) to twin screw granulation (TSG) applications.

The Pharma 11 extruder is ideal for a wide range of drug development applications including drug delivery systems, implants, tablets and granules.

The GMP-compliant device is also suitable for clinical trials, and the compact design makes it ideal for glove box applications.

Thermo Fisher, one of the pioneers in rheology, successfully supports a wide range of industries with its comprehensive Thermo Scientific material characterization solutions.

Material characterization solutions analyze and measure viscosity, elasticity, process ability and temperature-related mechanical changes of plastics, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and coatings, chemical or petrochemical products, plus a wide variety of liquids or solids.

Thermo Fisher will showcase the Pharma 11 extruder in Thermo Scientific booth 4519 during the 2012 AAPS conference in Chicago, Oct. 14-18.
