Pharma mini Implant Line

Produce high-quality, injectable drug delivery systems with the Thermo Scientific™ Pharma mini Implant Line. This automated end-to-end solution meets cGMP and FDA requirements. Accurate dosing of pre-blended material enters the extruder, which moves material through a die to produce a filament. A closed-loop filament control system ensures that the implant strand has minimal diameter variability. The strand is cut to the required implant diameter and length. Out-of-specification implants are automatically discarded, assuring 100% quality.
