Manual weighing can cost you more than you think.
Typically, it takes two hours to record 500 doses to ± 1mg, and of course, there is the risk of human error, material lost and duplication of effort.
A SADE SP-B40 is the only automatic benchtop weight sorter to weigh, sort and record 500 doses to better than ± 1mg in just 8 minutes – no errors, and no material lost.
Any production downtime is costly ($300B value lost in 2018, source McKinsey & Co).
It can take up to two hours to change size format parts for some checkweighers, but CI Precision weight sorters can sort more shapes and sizes without the need to change parts, saving you downtime and money.
Can you afford to reinvest in your clinical trial if a weight defective tablet or capsule is not spotted in time (typically up to $4M for a phase 1 trial, researchgate.net).
The SADE SP weight sorter’s ability to sort EVERY tablet, capsule or soft gel to a high accuracy, gives you absolute peace of mind and safeguards your investment.
Pharma Services Contractor Almac uses the SADE SP440 in R&D applications for weight sorting both tablets and capsules, where batch sizes can vary from 1,000 - 250,000.
The SADE SP240 tablet and capsule weight sorter is used at Synthon Chile for specific markets that require additional quality verifications and for Internal Positive Controls.
Scrapping your batch due to a weight failure can cost upwards of $6,000 per 100,000 tablets (source McKinsey.com).
Typically, over 90% of that batch can be recovered and returned to the production process using a SADE SP weight sorter from CI Precision. Their higher accuracy ensures less re-work or wasted materials.
Pharmaceutical R&D, clinical trials and manufacture all require strict standards of uniformity, and weight is the most crucial of these. Each capsule, tablet or soft gel must be within tolerance as stated in the pharmacopoeias to ensure that patients take a precise pharmaceutical dose.
