Drum Lab

Flexible: Semi-automatic dosing system for micro-dosing of powder


As a semi-automatic laboratory table-top unit, the Drum Lab is perfectly suited for powder dosing in galenics and the production of small batches. With its drum filler, the Drum Lab doses small quantities of powder with high precision into primary packaging containers such as capsules, vials, cartridges, syringes or blisters. The automatic transport of the removable pucks, the automatic dosing process and an integrated checkweighing system ensure reproducible results that meet all requirements of pharmaceutical development.

Machine features


Various dosing methods allows the dosing of minimal quantities of powder. Depending on the individual powder properties different filling methods such as membrane filling, tamping pin, dosator or drum filling are applicable.

Filling capsules

Various systems for capsule filling allow the dosing of powders, pellets, tablets, mini tablets, powder blends, active ingredients or liquids. It is even possible to dose capsules into capsules.

Reservoir filling

Some dry powder inhalers include a powder reservoir for a pre-defined number of dosages. Generally, the defined quantity of active ingredients is filled using an auger filler, but it can also be filled in the lab by means of roller dosing.

Filling blisters

The powder filling module can be equipped with a drum filler or with a membrane filler. The drum filler produces partially filled cavities whereas membrane filler is filling the blister cavity to 100%.
