Laboratory and Pilot scale equipment is of the utmost value in the pharmaceutical industry to perform product optimizations and/or produce product samples for submission, stability or trial purposes on a small scale.  Due to the costly nature of many active ingredients, it is ideal to use Laboratory or Pilot scale equipment when considering the manufacture or development of new products or formulations or when making changes to existing products and formulations.

The Laboratory and Pilot scale equipment offered by Prism uses the same technology as the production scale machinery, resulting in very accurate information and processes being able to be developed at a low cost before scaling up or commercializing.

Prism’s wide range of Laboratory & Pilot scale equipment ensure that all mixing, blending, drying, milling, compression and coating can be carried out at this level.

The Laboratory and Pilot scale equipment meets cGMP standards and can be used across the Pharmaceutical, Food or Cosmetic industries.
