Tablets: a mixture of active substances and excipients, usually in powder form, pressed or compacted from a powder into a solid dose.

Advantages of Tablets

  • Greatest dose precision and least content variability
  • Lower cost – better suited for large scale production
  • Lightest and most compact
  • Easiest to package and ship
  • Simple Product Identification
  • Well-suited  for  immediate or modified  release modes:
    • Controlled Release (i.e. enteric – is this where this goes?)
    • Sustained Release
    • Extended Release
    • Delayed Release
  • Tamperproof: difficult to alter

Powders: Substances consisting of ground, pulverized, or otherwise finely dispersed solid particles, which  can contain drug compounds or nutritional products as functional foods.

Advantages of Powders
  • No compression/encapsulation/coating needed – less time consuming
  • No size limitations
  • Great flavors
  • Good for people with difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets

Suspensions and solutions manufactured with great precision.

Our state-of-the-art infrastructure enables us to offer a diverse range of critical care products for hospital use, including antibiotics with segregated facilities for betalactamics and cephalosporines. We manufacture sterile pharmaceutical solutions and suspensions for human use in the following packaging formats:

1. Prefilled syringes: The use of prefilled syringes is a modern way to apply parenteral drugs. The benefits, compared with vial-disposable syringe concepts, are convenience and ease of handling as well as safety advantages and reduction of drug overfill.

Our Prefilled Syringes offer differentiated advantages such as:

  • Greater efficiency
  • Lower overfill (and cost)
  • Reduced risk of dosage error and contamination
  • Increased patient comfort
  • Ease of use and convenience for healthcare professionals and patients

2. Ampoules:  A small sealed glass vial, used to contain and preserve a single dose of a sample, usually a solid or liquid. Amber or transparent glass is available, depending on the need for light protection.

3. Drops: Multiple doses of optic and nasal solutions packaged in plastic bottles to preserve the sterile characteristics of the contained drug. We offer special ophthalmic presentations with color-coded caps and labels for ocular medications corresponding to common therapeutic conditions, which also feature a new ergonomic design for more precise dosing.

4. Vials: Small, amber or transparent glass bottles with rubber tops and an aluminum band, used for injectable multi-dose preparations.

5. Sterile Powders for reconstitution: Vials containing an antibiotic drug in powder.  Adding a sterile liquid (saline solution, water for injection, or Dextrose) dissolves the powder making the drug ready for use. 

We manufacture our glass vials and ampoules, in various sizes and colors, in our own Type 1 glass vial manufacturing facility.  Customers throughout the world have come to trust our ability to deliver on time and exceed their expectations.

1. Syrups: Thick, sweet liquids usually used as flavored vehicles for drug delivery, consisting of a sugar base, water, natural or artificial flavorings, and a medicinal agent. .

2. Suspensions: Dispersions in which insoluble solid particles of a specific size are uniformly isolated and maintained in a suspending vehicle with the help of one or more suspending agents.

3. Creams: Semi-solid emulsions mixed with oil and water, primarily used for topical skin applications.

4. Drops: Liquid oral preparations intended to be administered in small volumes, generally to infants and children, with the aid of a suitable measuring device or dropper. Drops may be solutions, suspensions or emulsions.

5. Emulsions: A two-phase system comprised of at least two immiscible liquids, one of which is dispersed as droplets (internal or dispersed phase) within the other.
