Looking at new approach to oral drug delivery system such as oral dissolving strip, GE introduce a revolutionary machine, which can produce thin fast dissolving oral films, transdermal patches with uniform thickness.
- Film Former is an integrated and semi-automatic unit consisted of dragger with digital screw gauges, Stainless Steel body, heater, glass tabletop and digital temperature controller. For making oral dissolving films or transdermal film, set the temperature of Glass tabletop according to the solution/suspension with the help of control panel.
- Set the dragger screw gauges for required height considering the evaporation that reduces the thickness of film. Keep the dragger and dragger guide on glass tabletop. Pour the prepared bubble free solution/suspension of drug, film former and plasticizer and drag it with dragger on glass tabletop.
- After drying the films can be removed and cut as per the content and weight uniformity.
