The capsule machine enables our staff to create capsules that are allergen and dye-free. Some special options we can create are gluten-free, lactose-free, and soy-free. In addition, we are able to make cellulose based "veggie-capsules" for vegetarians. Capsules can be made immediate release, sustained release or enteric coated.
Elsectric Mortar and Pestle (EMP)
The EMP allows our technicians to mix creams and ointments into homogenous mixtures. The EMP allows technicians to place final products directly from the stirring jar into the dispensing jar without being exposed to the environment. This helps to prevent cross-contamination and helps ensure patient safety.
Laminar Flow Glovebox
The laminar flow hood is a machine which provides an isolated environment for sterile compounding of injectables and eye drops. The high efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA) filters at least 99.7% of air particulates (including air-borne bacteria and pathogens). Hieber's owner, Joe Bettinger, is trained in the latest aseptic techniques to ensure that injections are safe for his patients.
This machine has three porcelain rollers that work to reduce drug particle size. After the drug powders are added to a creamy base, the mixture is placed in the ointment mill, which grinds the creams and ointments. Reduced particle size ensures that more of the medicine will be absorbed into the skin.
The Powder Hood provides a safe environment for technicians to crush tablets, fill capsules, and handle drugs. The Powder Hood uses a HEPA filter to trap any airborne powder particles in the compounding process.
This is a high performance emulsifying instrument used to decrease particle size and make suspensions of the highest quality.
