Manufacturing and Bioprocessing – Chemical
2019 PharmSci 360
In this presentation the latest advances in commercially available excipients designed for continuous manufacturing will be discussed. Multiple case studies will be used to demonstrate the ideation, design, engineering and testing of excipients that enable oral solid dosage form continuous manufacturing. Specific examples will include the design of novel excipients optimized for continuous direct compression, granulation, extrusion and coating. These case studies exemplify the importance of collaboration between pharmaceutical industry and excipients suppliers. Pharmaceutical formulation scientists, materials engineers, process engineers and strategists with interest in continuous manufacturing will be able to use this presentation as a guide on how to select and evaluate excipients for continuous manufacturing in a rational fashion.
