PRODUCTION PROCESS DESCRIPTION
As first step in the production process, all ingredients are released under established standards. Once raw materials are approved, the formulation of tablets is performed mixing all ingredients until an homogeneous mixture is achieved. Next, physicochemical, organoleptic and chromatography testing is performed. If the mixture meets specifications, the Tablet compaction process is performed. At this stage, the product is weighed to standardize and deposited in the dies on a pneumatic tablet equipment . Samples are taken to analyze disintegration, friability, hardness percentage, dissolution ,organoleptic and microbiological testing. If the product complies with established specifications, then we proceed to release for sale.
