Pharmaceutical Granulation and Compression


Add this event to your calendar: iCal   Google Calendar

Who should attend?

All who are working in pharmaceutical research, formulation, development, production, QA/QC and registration who require a sound understanding of the various granulation and compression methods and who wish to appreciate some of the advantages of the newer methods of granulation, spheronisation, roller compaction, layering, melt extrusion and compression that are now available

Details

Granulation and compression are two very important processes that are carried out extensively by most pharmaceutical companies. However, the theory of granulation is little understood and the selection of a particular machine and granulation method, is often done on the basis of tradition, rather than by using strict scientific or cost-benefit criteria. The basic techniques have changed dramatically in recent years and granulation for controlled release, extrusion, spheronisation, fluidisation techniques, spray drying, melt extrusion, oral dispersion technology and roller compaction are new technologies that are increasingly being used in modern pharmaceutical production, which exhibit many advantages over previously available techniques. As with granulation, compression is also little understood and why some materials/formulations will compress well whilst others compact with difficulty, is slowly being elucidated. The Course will examine current granulation and compression theory and practice. Emphasis will be made as to how this theory and practice relates to current pharmaceutical development and production, with special reference to the machinery used. Scale-Up, Transfer Technology and SUPAC will also be addressed. A particular feature of the Course will be the workshop on new melt extrusion technology.
