Understanding R&D Continuous Processing – Hands-on Workshop

Discover the benefits of continuous pharmaceutical granulation and drying in R&D from the experts.

During our Understanding R&D Continuous Processing workshops, we will focus on optimizing particle size distribution using different screw elements, melt granulation with a twin screw granulator and conducting a design of experiment (DoE) test with a minimal amount of product. 

We will also investigate process transfer from the laboratory scale ConsiGma® 1 to the production-size ConsiGma® 25 as a case study.

On completing the training, participants will benefit from a thorough understanding of pharmaceutical continuous processing technology, be able to set up a DoE for continuous granulation and have developed a much better awareness of continuous manufacturing terminology. Furthermore, they will have gained hands-on continuous granulation and drying experience, and recognize how to improve operational performance and optimize a product.

The workshops are designed to be fully interactive, and each participant will have the opportunity to ask questions and share real-life experiences. All presentations and demonstrations will be given by our experienced process specialists.

Who should attend?

The workshops are aimed at R&D scientists and managers, production supervisors, quality assurance staff, process engineers and trainers.
