OEB‑5 Labo­ra­to­ry

New rooms for high­ly potent APIs

Up to date we have worked with sub­s­tan­ces up to OEB level 3 to 4 in our lab. To expand our sup­port ser­vices to HPA­PI, as well, we are cur­r­ent­ly buil­ding a new and sepa­ra­te OEB5 labo­ra­to­ry.

Along with a buil­ding con­trac­tor, we desi­gned this lab com­ple­te­ly by our­sel­ves. Unfor­tu­n­a­te­ly, the Covid cri­sis upset our plans and cau­sed delays and sup­ply shor­ta­ges here and the­re. Howe­ver, we are hap­py to now enter the final imple­men­ta­ti­on pha­se. We are expec­ting to go into ope­ra­ti­on at the begin­ning of the second quar­ter of 2021.

Inqui­re about OEB5 and HPA­PI alrea­dy now.

In our OEB5 lab we will offer ser­vices and tri­als such as:

    • • For­mu­la­ti­on development
    • • Preli­mi­na­ry tests for pro­duct trans­fer and scale-up
    • • Pre­tri­als for pro­duct optimization
    • • Trou­ble­shoo­ting for indi­vi­du­al challenges

The design of our OEB5 lab also allows us to install cli­ent machi­nes and devices. Of cour­se, for this pur­po­se cer­tain pre­re­qui­si­tes have to be ful­fil­led, such as a pro­tec­ti­ve casing for your machi­ne. We invi­te you to attend the tri­als, eit­her by watching through our obser­va­ti­on win­dow or even insi­de the lab wea­ring a pro­tec­ti­ve suit.


Working with HPAPI

Design and equipment

Sin­ce we wan­ted to ful­ly com­pre­hend the chal­len­ges and tailor the new lab indi­vi­du­al­ly for our pur­po­ses, we deci­ded to plan and design our OEB5 lab by our­sel­ves. This way we were able to imple­ment a top-level safe­ty con­cept allowing our employees and cli­ents to work in this envi­ron­ment without any con­cerns or doubts.

We deci­ded to build a who­le new room ins­tead of con­struc­ting insu­la­ting casings for all devices. The room gives us the free­dom to use the equip­ment more fle­xi­b­ly. The OEB5 lab‘s core is a sophisti­ca­ted ven­ti­la­ti­on sys­tem pro­vi­ding a pres­su­re sta­ge con­cept and an air exchan­ge rate of up to 30 times per hour. In addi­ti­on, it is pos­si­ble to adjust the air humi­di­ty wit­hin the working area.

For per­so­nal pro­tec­tion we use pro­tec­ti­ve suits with exter­nal ven­ti­la­ti­on. To exit the OEB5 area you must pass a dou­ble door sys­tem and a deco­n­ta­mi­na­ti­on shower.

Apart from ana­ly­tic devices to eva­lua­te tablet and pow­der cha­rac­te­ris­tics, the OEB5 lab‘s basic equip­ment inclu­des ano­t­her sin­gle-punch table­ting press, the Styl‘One Evo by Medel­pharm. If you requi­re dif­fe­rent equip­ment for your tri­als, plea­se don‘t hesi­ta­te to con­ta­ct us. We desi­gned the room lar­ge enough to accom­mo­da­te a medi­um-sized table­ting press or rol­ler compactor.
