G-CON Manufacturing, the leader in prefabricated, flexible cleanroom solutions, will further expand its Portable, Continuous, Miniature, and Modular (PCMM) collaboration with Pfizer and GEA by designing and building additional PODs and integrating them into the existing POD-based Oral Solid Dosage line. The new PODs will provide tablet coating capability in the existing line at Pfizer’s site in Groton, Conn. G-CON will work closely with GEA to integrate their leading-edge ConsiGma™ Continuous Tablet Coater equipment within the PODs.
The additional PODs will occupy approximately 700 square feet of area adjacent to the existing PCMM PODs and will include a film coating process area, dedicated airlocks for personnel and material, and an integrated technical space for the G-CON and GEA mechanical systems. The GEA equipment will be integrated in the PODs and tested prior to delivery to further reduce the time and complexity of installation at the Groton site and minimize the downtime of Pfizer’s current operations.
The ConsiGma™ coater from GEA is a high performance tablet coating technology that gently and accurately deposits controlled amounts of coating materials on tablets — even if they are extremely hygroscopic or friable. Designed specifically to be an integral part of the ConsiGma™ continuous tableting lines, the ConsiGma™ coater is able to process small quantities of tablets at very high rates, offering improved heat and mass transfer.
“The PCMM POD facility currently installed at Pfizer was designed with the flexibility for future expansion in mind,” said Dennis Powers, Director of Sales Engineering at G-CON Manufacturing. “We are very excited and grateful for the opportunity to design and build the additional PODs for Pfizer that will further enhance their capability to manufacture tablets for their patients.”
