Manufacture of microtablets

Nordmark has developed in-house the manufacturing technique for film-coated microtablets as small as 2 mm. In the early 1980s, the Company broke new ground with the then “smallest tablet in the world” as recorded in the Guinness Book of Records. Due to the small dimensions, the challenge involved in this method was to ensure the proportion of active ingredient is exactly defined and identical in each film-coated microtablet. This is accomplished by a “multi-use tool” that compresses the tableting mix with a high degree of precision.
