Technology Centre Pharma – competence in our process lab

Mixing, granulating, drying and coating – the important steps of your manufacturing process of oral solid dosage forms require reliable and intelligent solutions. DIOSNA’s Technology Centre Pharma is an open process lab offering high-quality systems and laboratory devices for testing and optimising your products. Discover the excellent quality standards of our technologies and find the optimal solutions for your pharmaceutical manufacturing.

State-of-the art equipped Process Lab for the pharmaceutical industry


Successful trials start on a small scale: Our Technology Centre in Osnabrück offers with the compact R&D mixer and granulator P 1-6 and the benchtop device MiniLab RC (RC stands for rapid change) two strong and efficient machines for recipe and process development. While the P1-6 is specialised on mixing and granulating of batches up to six litres, the MiniLab RC systems offers fluid bed drying and coating processes in one machine like the flexible clinical batch processor MidiLab RC. Larger scales are realised by the P/VAC 10-60: It is available as 50 litre single pot processor as well as as 60 litre high shear mixer and granulator and enables the processing of wet granulates and vacuum drying. The equipment in our pharmaceutical process laboratory is completed by the fluid bed processor CAP 10-80 RC which offers easy handling, a rapid change of bowls and a wide range of batch sizes.

Technology Centre for pharmaceutical manufacturing: Product analysis and recipe development


Beside our fluid bed and granulation systems also a number of professional laboratory analysis devices are available in our Technology Centre for pharmaceutical manufacturing to support the optimisation of your recipes and products. Tablet hardness and friability testers enable you to verify the quality of tablets while devices for particle size distribution and bulk density determine the ideal substance. In addition, we offer SEM (scanning electron micrograph) images showing the thickness of coatings in cooperation with the University of Muenster. Also, an infrared humidity measurement device, light and LCD microscope, various portable thermometers as well as stirrers and scales are available for a detailed product analysis.

Hands-on training in our Process Lab


From the first trials up to a targeted product development – you get the professional support of our experts during your visit to our Process Lab and are introduced to the optimal use of our systems.
