Training Pharmaceutical Granulation And Compression

Training Pharmaceutical Granulation And Compression

  PHARMACEUTICAL GRANULATION AND COMPRESSION     Training Pharmaceutical Granulation And Compression - Granulation and compression are two very important processes that are carried out extensively by most pharmaceutical companies. However, the theory of granulation is little understood and the selection of a particular machine and granulation method, is often done on the basis of tradition, rather than by using strict scientific or cost-benefit criteria. The basic techniques have changed dramatically in recent years and granulation for controlled release, extrusion, spheronisation, fluidization techniques, spray drying, melt extrusion, oral dispersion technology and roller compaction are new technologies that are increasingly being used in modern pharmaceutical production, which exhibit many advantages over previously available techniques. As with granulation, compression is also little understood and why some materials/formulations will compress well whilst others compact with difficulty, is slowly being elucidated. The Course will examine current granulation and compression theory and practice. Emphasis will be made as to how this theory and practice relates to current pharmaceutical development...
