Continuous manufacturing (CM) offers a bright future for improving pharmaceutical production processes. Advantages over traditional batch processes include flexible product lot sizes, higher yields, complete process monitoring using PAT, and tighter control over product quality. With just these benefits alone companies can see improved returns on their investment with less waste in labor, time and materials.

Twin-Screw Granulation (TSG) has proven to be a robust, well understood process for continuous operations, applicable to producing granules for solid dosage forms and direct consumption (e.g., dissolution, chewing). Learn how simple it can be to effectively implement TSG at your site and quickly understand which parameters can be optimized to deliver high-quality products.

What you will learn:

  • Setting up a TSG experimental plan
  • Identifying parameters critical to TSG scale-up for your formulation
  • Utilizing PAT for process monitoring and quality assurance  

Who benefits?
Scientists, engineers and experienced staff members from pharmaceutical process development involved with API/excipient formulation and production of drugs in solid dosage forms.
