Solid Dose White Papers & Case Studies

  1. Fluid Bed Granulation And Melt Granulation In Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

    Understanding and being able to control granulation is essential to the production of high quality pharmaceuticals. Fluid bed granulation and melt granulation can be tightly regulated to produce uniform material with a specified particle size therefore affording superior process reproducibility and better process control than many other granulation techniques.

  2. Leverage 3D-Printing In Clinical Trials To Accelerate Speed To Market

    The enhanced precision used in 3D printing can drive efficiencies in early drug development by allowing more flexibility with dosage size and strengths, leading to a more effective use of costly resources.

  3. The Emerging Possibilities For Oral Solid Dosage Forms Using 3D Printing

    To address the limitations of oral solid dose forms while also keeping pace with advances in patient treatment, pharmaceutical manufacturers must be willing to consider alternative approaches to developing and manufacturing OSD drugs.

  4. FDA-Approved 3D Printed Drug Paves Path For Precision Care In Patients

    3D printing allows drug companies to not only boost efficacy and adherence but also contribute to their brand longevity by expanding and capturing market share with other dosage form options. 

  5. Redefining Fast Melt For Pharma With 3D Printing

    Adults and children alike often struggle with compliance and acceptance of medication regimens due to the sizes and shape of prescribed tablets. One pharmaceutical manufacturer sought to create a convenient, easy-to-swallow dosage form by taking an alternative approach: three-dimensional printing (3DP). This white paper outlines their approach to creating an FDA validated manufacturing process for rapidly disintegrating dosage forms.

  6. 5 Steps To Increase Energy-Efficient Mixing

    Mixer testing simulation trials are needed to confirm the suitability of a specific mixing strategy. This white paper explores five ways to increase energy efficiency in new and existing mixing processes.

  7. Efficiencies In Powder Dispersion For Manufacturers

    Uniformly dispersing powders into a liquid batch in a practical amount of time is a common problem for F&B manufacturers. This white paper explores five tips for dispersing powders more efficiently.

  8. How To Optimize Solid-Liquid Mixing

    This paper provides practical information on the efficient use of specialty mixing equipment for the preparation of low, medium and high viscosity solid-liquid mixtures under low and high shear conditions.

  9. Development Of Biopharmaceuticals Requiring Lyophilized Formulations

    Development of a drug formulation and lyophilization (freeze drying) process begins with laboratory experiments followed by scale up to larger lyophilizers. 

  10. Revolutionizing Allergy Therapy

    ALK-Abelló is a global research-driven pharmaceutical company that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of allergies. Before ALK-Abelló partnered with Catalent, all marketed allergen immunotherapies were delivered by injection, resulting in a limited patient population and reduced patient adherence. Catalent worked with the client to apply Zydis Fast Dissolve Technology to their therapy. The overall result was a marked improvement in patient tolerability, preference and compliance.
