White Paper 8 compares DFF Sensor technology with Focused Beam Reflectance Measurement (FBRM) in monitoring of a granulation cycle in a 30L PharmaConnect HSWG granulator. In another study described in White Paper 9, DFF sensor identifies optimal formulation, predicts granulation end point, and enables scale up. White Papers are available for free download from our…Details
Freeman Technology Ltd., a partner and distributor of Lenterra’s DFF and RealShear sensors, has added an Application note on its website describing how DFF sensor is used complimentary with Freeman Technology’s FT4 Powder Rheometer®.
Lenterra has received U.S. patent 9,863,796 titled “Sensor for monitoring rheologically complex flows”. The patent describes flow sensors, systems, and methods for continuous in situ monitoring of a rheologically complex fluid flow within a vessel, such as particulate and multiphase media for ascertaining certain fluid flow parameters, such as flow rate, dynamic viscosity, fluid density,…Details
The Canadian Intellectual Property Office has issued a patent entitled “A sensor for monitoring rheologically complex flows” (Canadian Pat. No. 2,882,549). The patent protects Lenterra’s design of flow sensors, systems, and methods used for continuous in-situ monitoring of a rheologically complex fluid flow, such as particulate and multiphase media, for ascertaining fluid flow parameters, such…Details
Lenterra Inc (Newark, NJ), developer of in-line sensors for powder or multiphase flow characterization has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Freeman Technology Ltd (Tewkesbury, England), a global provider of powder flow testing technology. Lenterra delegates Freeman exclusive right to distribute Lenterra Flow Force Sensor (LFS) and Lenterra Shear Stress Sensor (LSH) systems worldwide. The…Details
A poster titled “Shear Stress Sensor for Peristaltic Pump Head as an In-Line PAT Tool for Protein Solutions” will be presented at the 2016 AAPS National Biotechnology Conference in Boston in May 16-18, 2016 (abstract, full text). The work was done in collaboration with Bristol-Myers Squibb.
Lenterra’s RealShear™ Wall Shear Stress Sensors were used in the study of the effect of turbulence and mechanical forces in oil and gas lines on protective corrosion product layers and inhibitor films. Results of the tests carried out at Institute for Corrosion and Multiphase Technology, Ohio University, were presented at NACE International Corrosion 2015 Conference…Details
Application of a novel in-line PAT tool based on Lenterra’s Drag Force Flow sensors for high shear wet granulation (HSWG) is reported in an article published in March issue of Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences. DFF sensors were used for real-time monitoring of the granule densification and wet mass consistency for a placebo and a brivanib…Details
