Tablet Formulation Development - Formulation development in practice (1 day)

05 Dec 2012 - 05 Dec 2012 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


This optional practical day follows the 2 day course ' Tablet Formulation Development ' which introduces and integrates the key elements of tablet development with the principles of Quality by Design (QbD) with 2 days of theory plus an optional practical day in our development laboratory. It will include experimental, hands-on experience of formulation development using the Gamlen Tablet Press.

 

The programme for this 1 day practical hands-on course covers:

Formulation development in practice

·    Material characterisation for product development

·    Direct compression

·    Wet granulation

·    Drying

·    Milling

·    Compression

·    Formulation evaluation and final selection


LIMITED TO 10 participants only


Who should attend?
The course is designed for people new to tablet development, and those requiring a refresher in the area. It will also benefit Process Development experts wishing to extend their understanding of why products processes can go wrong, and regulatory and quality personnel who need to understand the development process.


Course speakers:
Dr Michael Gamlen, Pharmaceutical Development Services
Michael is Managing Director of Pharmaceutical Development Services Ltd, a Nottingham (UK) -based technical consultancy. He has over 35 years experience of tablet development. Awarded a First Class Honours degree in Pharmacy, specialising in Pharmaceutical Engineering, he studied for a PhD at Nottingham University. He was Head of Tablet Development at the The Wellcome Foundation for 15 years, and has since worked for Vanguard Medica Ltd and as a consultant. He specialises in managing product development, formulation, tablet and process development studies. He has been teaching professional tabletting courses for many years and his courses are highly rated, exceeding the expectation of the participants in many cases.
Michael continually updates the content of his courses with the latest guidance and extracts of up-to-the minute scientific papers.


Dr Dipankar Dey, PharmaTraining Ltd
Dipankar Dey recently joined PharmaTraining Ltd as Training Manager. A graduate of Oxford University and with a PhD from Birmingham University, he was until recently Head of Process and Validation at OYSTAR Manesty, a well known tablet equipment manufacturer. Dipankar has experience in both sterile and solid dose pharmaceuticals, particularly in tablet coating and compression and is interested in PAT techniques to extract useful online information.

Keeping Tumor Growth at Bay
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets.
Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball
A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles
A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.
