Pharmaceutical powder handling refers to the technology used to handle drugs in their powder form. Once the ingredients and API's have been blended to powder form and mixed together, they are ready for the next steps to press them into drugs or insert into a capsule. Milling is the process of reducing the average particle size of the drug powder. This helps to increase dosage uniformity, ensuring each capsule or tablet will be the same. Granulation binds the smaller parts together to form larger particles, known as granules. The powder is then subjected to Hot Melt Extrusion whereby heat is applied to mix the materials together before they are blended and either pressed into tablets or filled into capsules.
