Low frequency, high intensity

Traditional mixing methods can sometimes pose a risk of exposure to chemicals, require long mixing times, and are prone to variability. The PCCA RAM is a groundbreaking machine that uses low-frequency, high intensity acoustic energy combined with high acceleration (G-forces) to rapidly, thoroughly and accurately mix powders. Resonant acoustic mixing (RAM) ensures an even distribution of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) with repeatable results from mix to mix. It removes the human element from traditional mixing where potency results can be inconsistent depending on the pharmacist or technician’s mixing techniques.

The PCCA RAM significantly reduces mixing time, commonly to two or three minutes (or less), reduces the risk of exposure to chemicals, and requires no cleanup or mixing by hand. RAM technology is standard technology in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, and compared to high-speed mixers, it generates very little heat.


Using the PCCA Ram is simple and easy:

  • Weigh powder into a mixing jar.
  • Mount the jar on the RAM platform and close the lid.
  • Choose a setting, and push Start.


  • Simple settings—30 seconds, one-, two-, three-, or four-minute mixing times and low, medium, or high mixing intensities
  • Relative standard deviations (RSD) less than 4% demonstrated on a broad range of formulations tested
  • Completely sealed mixing process
  • Capable of mixing up to approximately 300 grams of powder at a time
  • Powders are contained in a disposable jar

Boost Your Quality and Efficiency

Many compounding errors are the result of poor or improper mixing. The PCCA RAM offers reproducible, reliable and exceptional mixing that will boost your pharmacy’s overall quality process. This is particularly meaningful when mixing compounds with low concentrations of APIs. The PCCA RAM achieves optimal, hands-free results, which means more time for you and your team to work on other projects.
