Formulation Design and Troubleshooting of Dry Dosage Forms (Tablets and Capsules)

  February 12, 2016  
Center for Professional Innovation & Education, Inc., Malvern, PA
May 9 & 10, 2016

This two-day course will explain the principles of dosage form design and how poor decisions at the design stage result in unstable processes and problem products. Product design should begin with identification of critical process and material parameters, but all too often this stage of the development is rushed and product yield and quality are compromised. Rectifying these problems retrospectively can be difficult and expensive. "Right first time" is the key to success.

This program will also identify the key elements of a successful product, along with some novel techniques which can be applied both as development and as troubleshooting tools. The course will benefit personnel working in formulation and product development, manufacturing, product support, and regulatory affairs. By achieving proper integration based on sound scientific principles, many development and production problems can be avoided. The course includes case studies of tablet formulation development and a detailed step by step analysis of all elements of the tablet manufacturing process.

Upon completing the course, all participants will have a comprehensive understanding of the principles of formulation development and how they can be used to understand and troubleshoot manufacturing issues and problems, and improve productivity.
