All PharmaTraining courses focus on two key objectives. These are to provide attendees with knowledge—information, which will assist you in making better judgements— and skills, which will allow you to apply the knowledge you have received. We guarantee to engage your interest and commitment on the course, and we expect our training to improve your effectiveness.
About this course

In this one day workshop led by two leading experts, the issues surrounding the development and manufacture of effervescent products are explored in depth including practical sessions.
· What are the advantages and disadvantages of effervescent tablets?
· What are their particular requirements?
· Why do they present problems?
