Complimentary consultancy

Company representatives with in-depth technological expertise in the field of pharmaceutical spray drying will be available at the trade shows to offer insight into the GEA Niro technology, its benefits and the potential of pharmaceutical spray drying. Complementary consultancy on the topic of how the GEA Niro technology may best be exploited to its full capacity in any given case will be pro-vided at the trade shows.

Spray dryer for aseptic production

At PowTech/Technopharm, GEA Niro will present its new state-of-the-art spray dryer for aseptic pharmaceutical production, ASEPTICSDTM. Based on a new concept, the spray dryer is sterilised using steam: a method that meets regulations and guidelines put forward by the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and other such agencies and has consequently become the preferred method in the pharmaceutical industry. The method al-lows for the production of aseptic free-flowing powders in a single step. It also makes ample use of the benefits of spray drying over other production forms: e.g. powder engineering properties as well as the cost advantages of spray drying as opposed to other technologies.

About pharmaceutical spray drying

Spray drying is a fast and gentle way to produce free-flowing powders and a process that allows very precise particle formation. The drying takes place in seconds and at temperatures that pre-serve the product’s active ingredients. Spray drying can be applied in pharmaceutical production to obtain several benefits, including increased bioavailability, controlled release or taste masking and aseptic production. It can also be applied for production of fine powders for inhalation or other applications. It can be applied in the production of APIs, excipients as well as of solid dosage for-mulations of final drugs.
