Recent News at Upperton

Upperton have been investing in new equipment to enhance our capabilities in manufacturing final dosage forms. Our recent investments have included a Microfluidizer LM10 allowing for a homogenisation step prior to spray drying a solution containing API. 

In 2019, Upperton acquired a new cutting edge tablet press, Futorque X by KG-Pharma which can produce up to 130,000 tablets per hour or supporting DoE and research studies with minimal material. The O Hara LC M5 coater was also purchased in 2019; film coating is a key process offering a wide range of drug delivery benefits including: taste/odour masking, stability protection, modification of release profiles, ease of administration and product identification. Upperton will follow these investments through the purchase of further tabletting equipment.

The new service UpperSolv was launched in late 2019. UpperSolv™ is a signposted pathway to rapid, tailored screening of small quantities of API, the manufacture of prototype formulations using a range of scalable enabling technologies and comparison of the biopharmaceutical performance via a PK assessment.
