Convinced that the micro-pill will be growing strongly in the near future Stiplastics Healthcaring – a subsidiary of SGH Healthcaring, a rapidly growing group and a key partner for the pharmaceutical industry – has developed IQ-dose (Intuitive & Quick-dose), an adjustable device for dosing medicines in this form. The micro-pill makes it possible to sub-divide doses and therefore administer a very accurate dose with a high concentration of active ingredients and few excipients, in response to the obligation placed on pharmaceutical firms to develop paediatric forms (EU Regulation no. 1901/2006).

The easy-to-use IQ-dose first version can be used to administer 1 to 24 micro-pills without having to count or touch them, for perfect hygiene and safety! The user simply:

  • selects the correct dose,
  • fits the device directly over the bottle of pills,
  • tips the bottle upside down for IQ-dose to pick up the prescribed number of micro-pills, all at the same time.

The micro-pill offers several other advantages: it is easy to take, with less chance of choking and fewer risks of over/under-dosing. It also provides a solution for adults with swallowing difficulties.

Different development projects with pharmaceutical companies interested in the product are already underway.

International visitors to Multivac’s five exhibition areas will be able to learn all about the company’s comprehensive range of solutions as well as the expertise of the Multivac Group in all applications. The company will also be focusing at the trade fair on concepts for producing sustainable packaging solutions, as well as on the digitalisation of processes and business models.

The main stand in Hall 5 (E 23) will focus primarily on the food processing industry. Here Multivac will be showing four fully automated packaging lines to demonstrate its far-reaching expertise in line automation, as well as exhibiting a wide range of different packaging technologies. Concepts for producing sustainable packaging solutions will also be featured, as well as aspects of digitalisation in processes and business models.

Utilising an outside area (between Hall 5 and 7), Multivac will be showing a fully integrated solution in live operation for the slicing and thermoforming packaging of a wide range of products. The fully automated line consists of Multivac’s highest-output slicer model and a thermoforming packaging machine.

Exhibiting on another outside are (in front of Hall 5), Multivac will be giving an insight into its wide range of semi-automatic and fully automatic packaging solutions for small and medium-sized processors. This includes chamber machines, traysealers and compact thermoforming packaging machines.

Trade fair visitors to Fritsch (Hall 3, C 04) can find answers to their questions on all aspects of dough forming and processing as well as details of the company’s comprehensive product range – from solutions for hand-crafted producers right up to industrial-scale manufacturers.

In addition to this, Multivac will be presenting in Hall 16 (Stand B 72) a range of solutions for packing medical and pharmaceutical products.
