Assessing Tablet ManufacturabilityGamlen Tableting
To check if a powder will make a good tablet is a complex process because good tablets require qualities that can sometimes conflict with each other.
For example, the powder needs to be well-lubricated but the tablet also needs to be easily penetrated by ?uid in the gut. The tablet also needs to be physically robust but also break down rapidly in the body.
In addition, the most important powder requirements are for it to be readily compressible, well lubricated, and to exhibit acceptable elastic recovery during and after ejection, while retaining the essential property of dissolving at the speed required by its quality characteristics.
