Midas Microtech offers a comprehensive range of micronization solutions tailored for the pharmaceutical industry. Here's a summary:
Midas Microtech equipment comes with a 1-year warranty from installation or 18 months from dispatch, whichever is earlier.
Small R&D equipment can be delivered within a week, while fully automated equipment can take anywhere from 8 to 24 weeks, depending on the level of automation.
Primarily pharmaceutical, but also dyes/pigments, battery manufacturing, food ingredients, agrochemical, etc.
When it comes to us, ‘job work’ is in-house micronization done for client APIs.
We have a range of specially designed Jet Mills that are integrated into Rigid Barrier Isolators for use with cytotoxic products. These machines are modified versions of the original models which allow for easy operation and maintenance through glove ports only.
A process which reduces particle size down to a micrometer. It is used to control particle size and can benefit an extensive range of drug types, including, but not limited to, solid dosage, injectable, ocular, and inhaled products. The finer the particle size of API used in preparation leads to faster absorption by the human body. Micronization is most often used to describe processes that reduce particle size by using fluid energy, such as a jet mill, rather than by mechanical means.
There are several advantages of micronization, some include:
- Uniformity of particle size
- Better solubility
- Improved bio-availability
- Enhanced clinical efficacy
- Improved appearance / brightness
- Increased surface area
Almost any powder that is ‘friable’; powder that is brittle and not elastic or fibrous. It could be crystalline or amorphous, a collection of large crystals or agglomerates with low primary particle sizes.
The performance of Air Jet Mills is primarily evaluated based on Particle Size Analysis by Laser Diffraction. Our in-house Laser Diffraction Particle Size Analyzer helps deliver our customers with otherwise difficult to reach PSD requirements. Additionally, our in-house ONLINE particle size analyzer allows us to precisely control the PSD of the product significantly better than regular equipment.
Instead of using mechanical apparatus, jet milling uses pressurized gas to create high particle velocity and high-energy impact between particles, which leads to a reduction in particle size.
Customers can pick the machine best suited for their needs, depending on the volume and required PSD. We manufacture Jet Mills that allow a few grams to be micronized at a time, to large-scale production-sized Jet Mills that enable customers to realize thousands of kilograms a day.
