Second edition of the hands-on workshop “Continuous Manufacturing in Pharma”

The TTC Technology Training Center hosted the second edition of the popular “Continuous Manufacturing in Pharma” Workshop from November 7 to 9, 2017. Due to the overwhelming number of registrations for the first workshop, the TTC decided to offer another hands-on seminar on continuous manufacturing and once again the event was a complete success.

Most of the participants were engineers, researchers and operators from the international pharmaceutical industry. The first day of the workshop provided background knowledge on continuous processes, like continuous wet granulation and continuous dry mixing with direct compression, including an overview over PAT (Process Analytical Technology) in a continuous direct compression line. Still the focus of the workshop was the hands-on training in the Innovation Center of Glatt in Binzen. The participants had the opportunity to test the continuous wet granulation as well as the continuous dry mixing process and apply their knowledge. This special combination of theory and practice generated positive feedback from all participants. The evening program provided an ideal platform for exchange of experience and social networking.

For almost 20 years, the Technology Training Center (TTC) has been expanding knowledge by offering specialized workshops in Binzen and Weimar, Germany, as well as in Pratteln, Switzerland combining theory with hands-on experience. Some 100 renowned speakers from relevant industries and universities share their unique technology expertise with the participants in 235 workshops to date. The topics covered are tailored to the solid processing disciplines: drying, granulation, agglomeration, pelletizing, encapsulation and coating technologies for pharmaceutical, fine chemical, food, feed and related industries. The lectures, open plenum discussions and informal networking give further opportunities to learn more about new technology trends, experience and case studies.
