MATERIALS PLATFORM TECHNOLOGY FOR LAB AND COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION NEEDS – THE OMICRON LAB SERIES

 

Overview

OMICRON 10 PHARMA

OMICRON 12 PHARMA

The OMICRON LAB SERIES are purpose-built to help manufacturers, research departments and government agencies test and create formulations. These platforms provide greater control, are scalable, deliver outstanding value and can be used to develop materials at a lab or commercial scale. They can be customised to specific needs and requirements. The OMICRON 10 and the OMICRON 12 are our standard lab offerings.

 

The revolutionary ‘Fractional-Lobe’ geometry (replacing the integer-lobe design) eliminates shear peaks and ensures a uniform transfer of energy to the materials being processed, giving the capability and the control to work with sensitive materials. It reduces the energy consumed considerably, while improving overall quality.

 

 

STEER’S PATENTED ‘FRACTIONAL-LOBE’ SPECIAL ELEMENTS ARE AVAILABLE ONLY ON STEER’S  PLATFORM TECHNOLOGY.

The OMICRON 10 MINI is the pharmaceutical industries smallest scalable extruder for HME development. The design and utility of the OMICRON 10 MINI makes it the most versatile and user friendly platform for low volume HME application. Features which include tight tolerances, eliminated dead space, and low inventory die head make it ideal for the development of pharmaceutical applications requiring costly recipients and high potency API’s.

 

 

KEY FEATURES

 

  • Small footprint of only 650L x 350W x 300H and less than 45kg. Fits on a laboratory bench
  • Effective in handling small batch quantities of 10g to 15g.
  • Novel design features eliminate the need for complex procedures to clean and maintain.
  • All service components can be easily disassembled and reassembled manually
  • Unlike other HME “micro” extruders, the OMICRON 10 is truly scalable.

 

APPLICATIONS

 

  • Bioavailability enhancement
  • Sustained or controlled release
  • Taste masking
  • Potent compounds(oncology, narcotics)processing- dust reduction
  • Stabilizing moisture sensitive drugs
  • Solvent free processing
  • Content uniformity for very low dose drugs

 

 

OMICRON 12 PHARMA is a co-rotating twin-screw laboratory extruder, specifically designed and developed for the Pharmaceutical industry. The ability of this HOT MELT EXTRUDER SYSTEM is to generate outstanding dispersive and distributive mixing. It can produce material at an extremely low output rate, which helps in lowering the cost of development of new products. OMICRON 12 PHARMA offers the widest flexibility available in today’s market for Research & Development projects with the ability to be customized for any given application.
