Our digital and interactive Workshop No. 3! Giving you practical insights from the comfort of your home or workplace.
WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?
This workshop on tablet film-coating in perforated drum coating equipment is a perfect combination of theory, hands-on training, and demonstrations. The workshop provides the basics of tablet film-coating, and drying, and outlines their applications in the tablet processing industry. This workshop is the perfect investment for those who wish to acquire knowledge of efficient tablet coating.
It is planned to continue this first episode with minimum two more episodes to cover the comprehensive scope of this process technology (subject to change and input from the audience):
Episode 2 (approx. April 2021): Running a process, monitoring the process, interpretation of the actual process data, identifying short-comings, scale-up.
Episode 3 (approx. June 2021): Trouble Shooting, Cleaning, Maintenance, PAT
WHO IS THE WORKSHOP DESIGNED FOR?
Typically, operators and researchers from the pharmaceutical and related industries will get the most out of this workshop. However, the workshop is also perfectly suitable for those who are looking for a detailed overview of perforated drum coating technology in a short space of time.
On the one hand, increasing international competition is forcing companies to optimize their manufacturing and R&D processes. These trends increase quality and efficiency demands especially for the processing of oral solid dose forms as the predominant galenic dosage form. This includes the important step of tablet coating at the end of the manufacturing process.
On the other hand, there are few options to obtain a perfect mix of
theoretical and practical training. We bridge this gap between business and education with our decades of experience in the manufacturing and by the use of production equipment.
What makes our specialized training so special is:
THE UNIQUE HANDS-ON APPROACH.
This workshop aims to elaborate on the advantages and drawbacks of the individual techniques, focusing on the optimal spectrum of each but also considering the economical and practical aspects of manufacturing processes. All speakers are specialized, experienced, and renowned experts from science and industry.
