Particle engineering: the first stage for successful pharmaceutical formulation
The delivery of a robust formulation process which successfully delivers the active ingredient reproducibly throughout the shelf life of a product is a challenge that formulation scientists face every day. Quite frequently variable input materials need to be “accommodated” by adjusting the formulation process or, even worse failure in performance testing can result in failed batches and potentially delays in supplying the market. By controlling, or even designing the input material a number of opportunities where simpler and cheaper formulations/processes, more rapid development and more robust processes can begin to emerge. Engineering of formulations that have reproducible or even predictable performance should start during the particle formation stage. Historically drug substance and drug product groups have worked very separately but more recently a firm collaboration can help identify the “right particles” and methods to produce them on scale.
This symposium will provide world leading knowledge and case studies from both academia and industry in all the key aspects around particle engineering: Particle formation, isolation/drying, particle processing, particle assessment and particle performance.
It is a must attend for both scientists and managers in pharmaceutical development and manufacture and will also appeal to scientific community in related industries such as food, FMCG and agrochemicals.
This meeting is a partnership event bringing together the Materials Science Focus Group of the APS with the Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC). Opportunities will be available for displaying posters and also for exhibitors of scientific equipment/services. Please contact APS secretariat for more details.
The event is to be held at Trinity College Dublin and as this is a partnership event demand is likely to be high for the limited places hence please be sure to reserve your place early to avoid disappointment.
