Commercial-Scale Fluid Bed Capabilities

Frontida’s pharmaceutical fluid bed operations in Aurora, IL incorporate Wurster fluid bed technology capable of operating with numerous solvents. This allows for the application of uniform filmcoating throughout the manufacturing of clinical and commercial-scale drug products. In addition, DuraGran® technology allows us to minimize the amount of excipients used to manufacture beads or controlled release granules. We accomplish this without the use of spheronization or extrusion equipment while creating discreet and uniform taste-masked beads.
Our 325,000ft² facility can manufacture up to 3 billion units per year. We supply oral pharmaceuticals to the U.S. market using our expertise in controlled release granules, serialization, blister and bottle packaging, powder packaging in stick packs, fluid bed operations, solvent processing, and DEA controlled substances.

Frontida is a contract development and manufacturing organization that works collaboratively with clients to bring products to the pharmaceutical market. We offer formulation, analytical method development and validation, process development, commercial manufacturing packaging and more.
