First Vertical "All in One" in North America at Gattefossé new Center of Excellence in Paramus, New Jersey

06 May 2017

We are very proud to announce that we just installed our first Vertical "All in One" in North America at Gattefossé new Center of Excellence in Paramus, New Jersey.

 Dr Catherine Maieron, Operations Manager at Rondol states: "The  technology promoted by Rondol is a triple WIN for processing complex and expensive APIs used for the most efficient treatment of diseases such as cancer or AIDS: WIN for patient in terms of treatment efficiency and comfort, WIN for the care and insurance systems in terms of cost reduction, WIN for the Pharma industry in terms of patent extension and/or capex reduction. Our Vertical All in One machine is the perfect example of this triple WIN.”

 Dr Jason M. LePree, Application Laboratory Manager of the Gattefossé Pharmaceutical Division, states: " The Rondol Vertical "All in One" is a hot melt extruder that has all the features of the horizontal extruders already on the market, but owing to its vertical design, it has a much smaller footprint.  The apparatus also came with a pelletizer, which is another plus.  We currently have it configured for powder delivery via a twin screw powder feeder, but will soon expand its capabilities by adding a pellet feeder.  The unit is very versatile with 7 heating zones and a heating zone on the die, and the 40:1 L:D ratio of the screws allows scale up in other HMEs. This new technology will permit to Gattefossé USA to provide formulation development, troubleshooting, and technical support to our customers."
