Course: Lyophilization Technology: Product, Process And Systems (September 22-24, 2014)
Freeze drying experts BTL present a three-day course covering the science and application of lyophilization.
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
A Mesoporous Silica Carrier Optimized For Liquisolid And Lipid-Based Formulations
Syloid® XDP silicas are mesoporous, amorphous, silica gel excipients with a unique morphology that create an excellent solid porous carrier for pharmaceutical formulations. The combined adsorption capacity, porosity, particle size, and density provides a tool to create formulations which can expedite manufacturing and improve efficacy of the final dosage form.
Enhancing Stability In Nutraceutical Products
Nutraceuticals are natural products that are used to provide medical or physiological benefits.
Viscosity Flow Curve Tells All
Characterizing any material for flow behavior involves testing it over a range of shear rates relevant to how it is processed in manufacturing or how it is used by the consumer. Ointments, for example, are used to coat human body parts like skin, lips, finger/toe nails, hair, eyeballs, etc. The coating action is such that the medicinal mixture, once applied to the surface of the object, spreads as it is rubbed into place. Therefore, a relevant viscosity test would employ shear rates that mimic this type of spreading action.
Challenges & Opportunities: Encapsulation Of Liquid & Semi-Solid Formulations Into Oral Capsules
The encapsulation of liquids and semi-solids provides solutions for convenient delivery through improved oral absorption of poorly water-soluble drugs.
Automated pH Adjustment In An Intelligent Single-Use Mixing Platform
Most pH adjustment process steps in single-use biomanufacturing require manual manipulation of the product and vessel, including off-line sampling, pH measurement, and the addition of acid and base.
A New Formulation Line for Insulin Vials
The Danish Pharmaceutical Group Novo Nordisk has chosen Bürkert, the fluid control specialists, to equip its latest production line for the formulation of insulin vials at its site in Chartres (Eure-et-Loir), France. A technical solution supported by Bürkert allows the pharmaceutical leader to simplify their processes and increase productivity.
