Acquisition enables increased capacity to meet growing demand for powder in a capsule.

Pharmatek has announced that it has purchased another Xcelodose® 600S system.

This acquisition doubles the company's manufacturing production rate for powder-in-capsule (PIC) operations and increases overall preclinical and early phase clinical cGMP supply capabilities.

"The acquisition of an additional Xcelodose® unit enables Pharmatek to better serve our clients' early phase development strategies and meet the growing demand for PIC projects," stated Kevin Rosenthal, Director of Manufacturing at Pharmatek.

Rosenthal continued, "For PIC applications, the Xcelodose® can drastically decrease time to clinic while also lowering the cost of drug product for first-in-human trials."

In addition to adding another Xcelodose® system, Pharmatek has implemented a dedicated Xcelodose® project team to ensure the overall success and quick turnaround of PIC programs.

Each team is led by an Xcelodose® engineer who oversees the project from planning to execution.

The Xcelodose®, manufactured by Capsugel, is a precision powder micro-doser and automated encapsulator that has the ability to fill formulations or active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) directly into capsules with a remarkable level of accuracy.

The Xcelodose® can measure to levels as low as 100 micrograms and can dispense into capsules from size 00 to 4. Dosing directly into capsules can reduce the amount of API required.

Additionally, the unit minimizes overall development time by simplifying analytical and stability protocols.
