Lomapharm specialises in the production of tablets and liquid pharmaceuticals and high-quality dietary supplements.
Founded in 1878, this family-run company is one of three affiliated companies within the Lohmann Group, located near Hamelin, Germany. The Group's core expertise is processing and refining iron and mineral salts and their end products, and all production at Lomapharm complies with GMP standards.
Lomapharm delivers 3-4 billion tablets a year to its customers. The versatile range of machines can produce mixtures for direct tablet compression, as well as granulates, via dry granulation or wet granulation with subsequent drying.
Tabletting is carried out by computercontrolled high-capacity presses. Coating takes place in a range of drum coaters with up to 500kg capacity. The 'art of sugar coating' is performed in up to 24 modern tablet-coating pans with capacities of up to 120kg each. This enables Lomapharm to process small and large batches of high-quality film- and sugar-coated tablets. Lomapharm is also now in the position to handle Microtablets and to offer contract manufacturing of such solid dosage form.
Lomapharm has modern clean rooms that comply with the stringent specifications laid down for sterile production. The filling lines fill ampoules and eye-drops up to 10ml - usually prepared in batches of up to 650kg.
Lomapharm produces solutions and sophisticated suspensions in batches up to 2.9t and also under nitrogen depending on the specific product.
The broad range of services is rounded off by the development and galenic optimisation of pharmaceutical formulations, design of dietary supplements, up-scaling, stability testing pursuant to ICH regulations, and support in approval application procedures.
