Hello and welcome to the tutorial on how to use the LFA Tablet Mix Caculator.
At LFA we understand that getting the maths right on your mix is critical for business success but is not all ways the most simple of things. Making sure there is not to little or to much of an active ingredient in your tablet enshores that your customers get exactly what they have paid for while making sure you do not waste potentially expensive active ingredients.
The first thing you will have to do is login to the members section.
Next click on the tab that says tools and resources.
Then click on the link that says tablet mix caculator.
The first value that you need to enter is the Active Weight Per Tablet. If you have just one active this will be relatively simple. If you are making a Caffeine Tablet with 100mg of caffeine in then the amount will be 100.
If however you have a tablet with multiple actives you will need to add them up first. Forinstance if you are making a supplement with 100mg of Caffeine, 50mg of Grean Tea Extract and 10mg of Vitamin B12 then the number entered in to Active Weight Per Tablet would be 160mg.
If you have more than one active in greadent simply click on the buttion Add Active and enter the number for the second ingredent. Keep doing this until you have entered all of the ingrediants. Forinstance if you are making a supplement with 100mg of Caffeine, 50mg of Grean Tea Extract and 10mg of Vitamin B12 then you will have 3 active boxes with 100, 50 and 10 in them.
If you are not shore how to convert micro groams, milli grams, grams or KG in to each other then check out our weights calculator. In the Tools and Resources section of our members area.
The next number you will need to insert is the Total Tablet Weight. This is how much the total tablet will weigh once it has all of its actives, binders, fillers and flowing agents. If we use the example of a 100mg caffeine tablet and you have calculated that the Total Tablet Weight is going to be 300mg with the caffeine, flowing agents, binders and fillers then enter 300 in to this box.
If you are not sure as to how much your Total Tablet weight will be then we have put together a chart to estimate your total tablet weight. You can find this in the Tools and Resources section of the members aria. While this is a good gide it is best to do a test mix to check it before committing large amounts of your Actives.
Next you need to decide if you would like the calculator to calculate the amount of active you will need to produce X number of tablets or how many tablets you can make from X kg of active.
Say you have an order for 10000 tablets from a customer simply select tablet count from the drop down menu and then enter 10000 in to the box below. This will then automatically generate a table telling you how much of each item you require to produce the tablets you would like to make.
If on the other hand you only have 2kg of active and you need to know how many tablets you can make and what you need to add then select Active Weights. Enter the amount of actives you have in the boxs below in KG and it will automatically produce a mix formulation for you.
We hope you find this tool helpful if you have anymore questions get in contact.
