CPHI Worldwide is a not-to-be missed event for the whole pharma supply chain and, for many, the highlight of the calendar year.
The IMA Group and its specialists are glad to introduce IMA Pharma, the All-In-One supplier specialized in the design and manufacture of automatic machines and complete lines for the processing and packaging of pharmaceutical and biomedical products as well as the latest and innovative technologies.
In this CPHI edition, a dedicated Continuous Manufacturing corner is on display.
IMA Active’s belief in and knowledge of Continuous Manufacturing have grown stronger thanks to intensive R&D work carried out on two fronts.
A more disruptive front of IMA Active R&D consists in the partnership with CONTINUUS Pharmaceuticals, a spin out of Novartis-MIT Centre, leveraging a novel production platform called Integrated Continuous Manufacturing (ICM). ICM enables seamless end-to-end Continuous Manufacturing processes that incorporate API formation steps with final drug product formulation.
IMA Active supports ICM in the development of EMC (Extrusion Molding Caoting) technology to create the final dosage form.
While on the other R&D front IMA Active works on continuous processes by revisiting current technologies, embracing a concept of Continuous Manufacturing more closely related to conventional solid forms.
