New partnership to enhance capabilities for solid dosage manufacturing.
Bosch Packaging and Parsolex, a leading contract development and manufacturing organization, have entered into a close cooperation. Parsolex will benefit from the latest packaging technologies for pharmaceutical manufacturing, Bosch Packaging Technology will gain access to a manufacturing site in the U.S. to showcase its technological capabilities. “Our strategic partnership with Parsolex showcases our state-of-the-art oral solid dose manufacturing equipment and, combined with their wealth of expertise, this will position Parsolex as a top contract manufacturer for the pharmaceutical industry,” Thomas Mauritzen, president of the Bosch Packaging Technology pharma division in North America, stated.
Diversity of precision machines for solid dosage manufacturing
Parsolex has chosen Bosch Packaging equipment for its recently expanded CGMP commercial manufacturing facility in West Lafayette, Indiana, to complement its existing capabilities. The company believes that the new Bosch Packaging machines will contribute to a range of clinical supply manufacturing programs.
“Parsolex is excited to partner with Bosch Packaging Technology to offer our clients access to the latest solid dosage technology innovations in granulation, coating, tablet compression and capsule weight sorting,” said Alfonso Chang, CEO of Parsolex. “Access to Bosch Packaging and its technology enhances our capability to work on even more complicated and/or diverse issues that are challenging our clients’ business today.”
The new Bosch Packaging precision equipment installed at Parsolex’s West Lafayette site includes:
- The Pilotmix and Pilotlab platforms, which offer new granulation and precision coating capabilities, including high-shear and spray granulation, as well as fine particle, pellet and microtablet coating and drying, respectively.
- The highly efficient TPR 200 tablet press, which more than doubles Parsolex’s tablet compression production rate and allows for greater flexibility, improved yields and faster changeover times.
- The Solidlab 2 drum coater, which can easily scale up production parameters for cosmetic and functional film compressed tablet cores coating, including controlled release applications.
- The KKE 1700 capsule checkweigher, which offers 100% gravimetric capsule weighing and maximum output, producing well over 2.5 million commercial capsule doses worldwide so far.
Joint research projects planned
As part of the strategic partnership, Bosch Packaging Technology and Parsolex will conduct joint research projects that demonstrate Parsolex’s capabilities on Bosch Packaging Technology’s machines. Furthermore, both partners will host events on market trends, technological innovations and manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry.
