Production of measuring /dosing accessories

 

Farmmash LLC produces measuring/metering products intended for the needs of the pharmaceutical industry using modern technologies. Measuring cups and spoons are made of high-quality polypropylene from the leading suppliers of polymeric raw materials – LyondelBasel, MOLGroup, Sabic. The workshops are equipped with high-tech equipment – automated injection-molding machines from Engel and Arburg. Measuring/dosing accessories are produced by injection moulding.

High quality of products manufactured by Farmmash LLC is ensured by such components:

  • primary raw materials that meet the requirements of the Pharmacopoeia are used;
  • Production is carried out on new state-of-the-art equipment;
  • All types of pharmaceutical products are manufactured under clean room conditions that meet requirements for Class ISO 7;
  • The quality management system meets the requirements of the ISO 9001-2015 standard in force.

Types of measuring/dosing products

We produce 2 types of measuring/dosing products for drugs:

  • dosing spoon (DS);
  • measuring cup (DC).

 

Dosing spoon

The LD-5 dosing spoon allows measuring off small doses of liquid pharmaceutical products. The maximum dose of the medication that can be measured by the spoon corresponds to its volume of 5 ml. On the inner surface of the scoop, there are graduations corresponding to lower doses: 1 ml, 1.25 ml, 2 ml, and 2.5 ml. The dosing spoon is made by moulding from primary polymer raw materials. The material of the spoon does not enter into a chemical reaction with pharmaceutical products, does not absorb tastes and smells. The spoon has a convenient ergonomic shape. Compact sizes (90.8×32.9 mm, a width of the handle is 12.8 mm) allow placing it into cardboard packaging with a bottle of medication.

 

Measuring dosing cup

We offer 2 designs of dosing cups:

  • SD 15, volume of 15 ml, graduations of 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 12, 12.5, and 15 ml marked on the walls;
  • SD 20, volume of 20 ml, graduations of 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 15, and 20 ml.

Both measuring dosing cups have cylindrical shape, are made of hygienic, solid, light-weighted, but durable polymer. A transparent cup with a clear graduation allows measuring off the desired dose of the medication with high accuracy. The SD 15 cup can be completed with the child resistant cap 1.4 CRC (with a neck diameter of 28 mm). The SD 20 cup can be completed with the 1.4D closure or 1.4D cone.

 

Importance of metering/dosing products for the pharmaceutical industry

Accurate dosing is of great importance not only in the process of manufacturing medicines, but also for the process of using ready-made drugs by patients. Pharmacists use high-precision measuring instruments in the manufacture of drugs. And patients often measure off a single dose of a liquid drug with a tea or tablespoon without any measuring graduations. Such approach leads to a significant reduction in the accuracy of the dosage, on which the effectiveness and safety of treatment depends.

In recent decades, pharmaceutical manufacturers supply liquid dosage forms completed with metering/dosing accessories. Depending on the recommended single dose of the drug, the measuring accessory may have a shape of a syringe, spoon or a cup (the latter have a higher volume). There is a number of requirements for metering/dosing products for syrups, suspensions, and liquid extracts:

  • the presence of a set of measuring graduations corresponding to the standard doses of the drug;
  • accuracy of graduation;
  • compliance of the material with requirements for primary packaging for the pharmaceutical industry (chemical inertness, compliance with hygiene requirements);
  • for metering cups, there are requirements for compatibility with widely-used models of bottle closures;
  • affordable price (inclusion of the metering/dosing product into the set of the pharmacological products should not lead to a significant increase in its cost).
