Welcome and Introduction
Principles of pellet production & processing: pelletizing, layering, and coating.
Introducing the basics of pellet manufacturing focusing on pharmaceutical applications. Giving an insight into theoretical backgrounds, standard manufacturing operations und required equipment as well as starter materials to create various pellet types and sizes.

Q & A
Introduction to virtual “HANDS-ON” session
Efficient film-coating to Micro-Pellets – LIVE ! –
Introducing the latest development of a fluid bed processor with bottom-spray WURSTER at R&D scale and comparing it with a production scale process unit. Learn how the equipment is set-up and tuned. Understand the most critical part to achieve success: the spray nozzle! How to investigate the performance of the spray nozzle? Explore the pit-holes which can ruin your process. Factors to consider to process even micro-pellets without failure and interruptions. Learn how to shorten the process and maximizing the yield. Monitoring the process and optimize the operating conditions. Understand the critical parameters and how the process automation will avoid a batch failure, etc..

Q & A
Preparation of multiparticulates using fluidized bed technology ‐Principles of drug layering and functional coating
Covering formulation and process variables influencing drug layering and coating at different scales. Also, addressing post coating processes (e.g. curing) and their influence on drug release and stability. Finally introducing an “assembly kit” for small scale development of multilayer pellets.
