The consistent and precise dosing of pharmaceutical agents during laboratory testing is critical for the development of new medications. Liquid pharmaceutical agents tested in laboratory subjects must be precise to determine the accurate influence of the agents and to reproduce consistent, precise dosing. One of the greatest obstacles to repeatability in pharmaceutical experiments is the lack of precision dosing.
Ultrapure Water Application Requirements
Cleaning and production processes in the pharmaceutical industry typically utilize ultrapure water (UPW) systems that require specific equipment and technologies designed to preserve the purity of materials. Flow measurement devices must be constructed with ultrapure materials to avoid contamination of any measured liquids to maintain sanitary, sterile process conditions.
UPW is used in biotechnology and pharmaceutical facilities as an ingredient in products, a diluent in multiple dose injections, and as a cleaning agent. Water utilized in these applications, including the preparation of pharmaceuticals and internal irrigation processes, must be free from viruses, microbes, and endotoxins. Precise dosing is critical in all pharmaceutical testing and manufacturing as well as ultrapure water application needs.
Flow Meters for Dosing of Pharmaceutical Agents
Oftentimes, many metering applications are handled with diaphragm metering pumps that do not require flow meters, higher dosing rates, however, and steady flow metering requirements are usually better handled with gear pumps and flow meters. Incorporating flowmeters with gear pump sensors provides precise dosing, enhanced reproducibility and reliability, accurate dosing for small rates of liquid, stable temperatures, and low pulsation when pumping.
Flow meters with gear pumps promote precise dosing and ultralow flows of a pharmaceutical agent, with the flow meter controlling the pump and the pump delivering the desired flow. Mass flow meters measure liquid flow in real-time and adjust the flow to control the pump.
Reduced Pulsation with Exact Control
Reduced pulsation is important to not harm any tissue from the species and can be significantly reduced with the use of a pulsation damper. An experienced pump and process equipment supplier can help you determine the best type of pump and process equipment pumping solutions to reduce pulsation and maintain stable temperature of pharmaceutical agents.
Reduce Maintenance and Downtime
Easy-to-clean pumps and equipment provide many advantages, particularly when pharmaceutical agents contain high salt concentrations. Flowmeters with gear pumps improve exact control with precise dosing as well as reduced maintenance and downtime.
