We're delighted to announce the recent publication of Cedrine de Backere's first paper. Cedrine is a STYL'One user, and team member of Ghent University's Lab of Pharmaceutical Technology.
This study evaluated the performance of an external lubrication system implemented in a compaction simulator, studing both spraying-time and atomizing pressure.
Low ejection forces were obtained with a much lower lubricant concentration (0.01–0.06% MgSt) compared to internal lubrication (0.75% and/or 1.25% MgSt). In addition, externally lubricated tablets showed no reduced tensile strength and no prolonged disintegration times, which is in contrast to internal lubrication.
