DeltaVita®

Grinding and Dispersing of Pharmaceuticals

General

The comminution or desagglomeration of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) is called micronization and brings about several advantages. The increase of the particle surface caused by the comminution results in a considerably better dissolution rate and bioavailability of the agents and therefore the APIs act faster. Due to the increased bioavailability a lower amount of APIs is required which in turn leads to a more cost-efficient product with less risks and side effects for the patient.

Based on comprehensive experience with the production of GMP-compliant pharmaceutical products, all sizes of NETZSCH DeltaVita® machines ranging from small laboratory- to production-size machines excel by the following specific features:

  • All product wetted parts are designed and manufactured according to the latest GMP standards
  • Material, production and calibration certificates are supplied together with the machine
  • Optional cleaning in place (CIP) and sterilization in place (SIP)
  • All indirectly product-wetted surfaces are made of stainless steel
  • Optional data recording and formulation management
  • Operator management with password protection for different levels of security
  • Laboratory mills can be used with variable grinding chamber sizes
  • Various materials like NETZSCH-Ceram Z, stainless steel 316 or nylon grinding chamber designs are available
  • Splash-proof machine stand

Application literature

Application literature

The pharmaceutical field has long been a model for industry, creating best practices in R&D, manufacturing, marketing and other disciplines. As such it also has recorded historic levels of profitability. But an evolving marketplace, changing regulatory standards, increased manufacturing costs and a number of other factors have begun exerting pressure on pharmaceutical producers.
