Gamlen Tableting Launches New Video Series

Gamlen Tableting has launched a new series of GamTech videos.

The new series entitled "Tablet Development Made Easy" is accessible through Gamlen Tableting’s website. The videos discuss the key principles of tableting, including how to address common tableting issues and how to investigate the compaction process.

Managing Director of Gamlen Tableting Michael Gamlen explains: "The first episode in the GamTech series explores the topic of investigating tablet problems. Quite simply, it is a short audio visual feature explaining that it is easier to understand tablet properties if you compress a series of tablets to different forces under controlled conditions. This allows you to see the effect of compaction on tablet properties such as manufacturability and dissolution."

There are three key parameters required to characterise a compacted material; compaction pressure, tensile strength, and solid fraction. Episode two in the GamTech series explores how these parameters interact in the compaction triangle.
