The 3G version in the Fluid Bed Processor after the top spray and the bottom spray Wurster, the tangential spray or what is also known as the Roto Granulation, became popular in handling pellets, especially for its capability in converting what was essentially a skill-based pan coating art into a programmable and validatable technology. Drug […]
Any pharmaceutical product that is being developed begins with initial testing or experiment and goes through several iterations before it can be manufactured. In other words, the lifecycle of any well-known product involves the scaling-up process numerous times. However, scaling-up of any manufacturing process has its concerns due to the increase in manufacturing size and […]
Introduction:Formulators rely on science and technology knowledge for solutions to new or existing problems through well-considered combinations of methodologies and approaches that profoundly impact the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry. They understand and evaluate the pre-formulation phase, formulation and process development, and post-formulation phases to achieve specific objectives. Hot Melt Extrusion, a prevalent practice in the […]
Pharmaceutical Pellets are small, free-flowing, spherical particulates manufactured by the agglomeration of a fine powder, granules of drug substances and excipients using appropriate processing equipment. Pelletization and Granulation are often used interchangeably. However, pelletization technique is considered superior to most techniques that fall under a similar category. Pellets have undoubtedly become a very important […]
