Medelpharm Science Lab installs specialist GranuTools powder characterization instruments
Beynost, France: – Medelpharm’s addition of new specialist instruments at its Science Laboratory means the research-based manufacturer and tableting specialist can now perform sophisticated powder characterization studies even faster.
Installation of a new GranuHeap granular material heap analyzer and GranuPack high resolution tapped density analyzer will significantly speed the abilities of the Medelpharm Science Lab at Beynost, near Lyon, to predict and characterize the compressibility and flowability of powders in direct compression and tableting.
GranuHeap and GranuPack instruments
The GranuHeap™ granular material heap analyzer provides precise, automated and repeatable repose angle and cohesive index measurements to make more precise comparisons between the tableting suitability of different powders.
The GranuPack™ high resolution tapped density analyzer system provides faster and more accurate measurement of the bulk and tapped densities of powders, delivering more precise Hausner Ratio and Carr’s Index results as well as precise predictions of powder packing dynamics with full packing curve and characteristic tap number n1/2.
Powder characterization partnership
The installations are the first result of a new partnership between Medelpharm and the instruments’ Belgian-based manufacturer, powder flow characterization specialist GranuTools.
The partnership strengthens both companies’ capabilities, with Medelpharm benefiting from GranuTools’ cutting-edge technologies for powder flow characterization while GranuTools benefits from Medelpharm’s proven pharmaceutical expertise.
The collaboration will allow both companies to offer their customers cross-disciplinary studies on their powders from the Medelpharm Science Lab.
Founded in 1985 in Lyon, France, MEDELPHARM has more than 35 years of experience in the tableting sector. Among other initiatives, the precision engineering company designs and manufactures research & development compaction simulators, and provides innovative solutions for powder analysis and formulation support.
Staffed by a dedicated team of scientists and technicians, the MEDELPHARM Science Lab performs trials with predictive results and supports its customers with formulation and powder characterization challenges. In addition, MEDELPHARM Distribution also represents a range of solutions in powder processing, from R&D to production.

Based at Awans, near Liege in Belgium, GranuTools specializes in powder flow characterization. It improves understanding of powder properties and behaviors by delivering leading-edge physical characterization tools for the study of the pharmaceutical powders used as APIs and excipients) in formulation and industrial processes such as tableting, wet and dry granulation, blending, capsule filling, etc.
GranuTools instruments can quantify the powder flow properties of such powders as vital parts of R&D and industrial process optimization, to develop powders with appropriate flowability to avoid serious complications in production lines, such as clogging, agglomeration, segregation, etc.
