Automated Powder Dispensing using SWILE technology


FLEX SWILE –  Revolution in automated powder dispensing and reformatting of solid compounds / compound management


Facing challenges in compound management and solid dispensing such as:

  • Tedious and error prone weighing
  • Having your highly educated, valuable lab staff tied to balances and mundane tasks
  • The need to distribute very small (sub-mg) quantities of powders & solids such as API’s, catalysts, ligands, reagents, pigments, etc.
  • Time-consuming weighing processes


Solution to overcome these challenges:
