Solid dosage forms, even in small- and medium-scale batches

Our solid forms manufacturing spectrum ranges from standard processes (e.g. granulation, tabletting, coating, capsule filling), and homeopathic remedies and globules, to unusual specialties such as silver dragees.

Our production not only carries out all legal standards, we routinely carry out all forms of even the most complex solid forms. We offer film, mini and bi-layer tablets in addition to the usual tablet formats. Because our technology enables countable mini-tablets, we can produce hard-shell capsules filled with mini-tablets or even combine them with the conventional powders or granulate.  Artesan offers a wealth of innovative solutions and methods for your solid dosage product needs and requirements.
