Raw Material Dispensing
Sphere uses the 3WS Wayahead Dispensing system which manages all aspects of the raw material weighing process. We recognise the importance of precise accuracy and reduced human error when dispensing your products ingredients.
This core functionality covers Lot Number bar code scanning, then electronic balance selection and regular calibration. Once the balance is selected, the user weighs the empty container Tare weight, then proceeds to weighing to the target quantity. A graphic colour display, moving from Yellow (low) to Green (OK) to Red (high) assists the operator to weigh to the required level.
All data recorded via Wayahead is then interfaced back into our main SAP MRP system
Solid Dose Tablet Production

A variety of product technologies and configurations are available including sustained release, chewable, sublingual delivery and novelty shapes with tablet coating options ranging from film to enteric coating. Sphere Healthcare has an extensive formulary of tablets containing vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, probiotics and various other nutraceutical ingredients.
Soft Gelatin Production
Sphere has established itself as the market leader in producing complex slurries where traditional Vitamin and Mineral products are combined within an oil matrix such as Fish Oil or Krill oil. Our equipment is specifically designed to cater for these new dosage formats with unique dye tooling to ensure seem integrity and strength are optimised.
Combining these ingredients with an oil requires complex skill sets within our laboratory to isolate and identify the actives so that the label claims are upheld. Sphere commitment to quality sees us test the liquid medicine mix both pre and post encapsulation to measure uniformity and correct active medicine mix loads.
Our Dynomill process allows for the reduction in dry particle size on complex slurries without degrading the volatile active components due to excessive heat that would normally occur in a standard milling process.
Sphere current capabilities also include simple straight fish oils with reflux masking in sizes up to 2000mg.
