Hot melt extrusion technology for continuous manufacturing

2 January 2018 | By ,

Hot melt extrusion (HME), a manufacturing technique traditionally used in the plastic and food industries, is now attracting significant interest from the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector. This is primarily because HME enables the continuous manufacture of a wide variety of dosage formulations, including solid dose form, which is of particular importance…

What do we need from PAT?

18 December 2017 | By ,

Pharmaceutical manufacturing in the modern era is facing unprecedented demands, including in-depth scrutiny of production methodology, and inefficiencies in current practices with respect to waste, energy usage and time management. Coupling this with increased complexity in the manufacture of newer products and the decline of blockbuster drugs, results in an…

Applying simple PAT tools to crystallisation in process chemistry

23 October 2017 | By

Crystallisation is a common step in the synthesis of organic compounds used to isolate and purify the desired product. As the importance of crystallisation has increased and chemists improve the processes involved, process analytical technology (PAT) tools can be used to design, analyse, and control them. This article considers the…
