Idifarma Approved for EU-GMP Commercial Capsule Manufacturing
Idifarma, a Spanish contract development and manufacturing organization, has expanded its GMP manufacturing offering with the installation of new automatic capsule-filling capabilities at its European Union-GMP approved plant in Pamplona, Spain.
The new Bosch GKF-702 automatic capsule-filling machine, which is capable of manufacturing up to 42,000 hard capsules per hour, is fully operational and will support Idifarma in the manufacturing of small-scale clinical and commercial batches as well as providing the ability to simulate industrial production environments during research and development.
The new investment includes a minibowl for small R&D batches and an industrial PC to make batch documentation easier to access.
In addition to its expanded capsule-filling capabilities, Idifarma has also recently invested in new analytical equipment at its Pamplona facility, including an Agilent gas chromatography system and dissolution apparatus as well as four new Waters high-performance liquid chromatography systems.
