Sharp Adds Capsule-Filling MachineBy
Sharp Clinical Services, a division of Sharp Clinical Packaging, has acquired a MG America's Planeta 50 continuous capsule-filling machine to increase its capsule-filling capability. The new equipment fills capsules with powder, pellets, tablets, or micro-tablets at a rate of up to 50,000 capsules per hour and has an in-process weight-control system. Sharp can now fill capsules ranging from a few hundred capsules (for preclinical or early Phase I studies) to hundreds of thousands of capsules (for larger scale Phase III studies and beyond).
