More and more pharmaceutical products are reaching the market as multiparticulate dosage forms, mainly as pellets. The healthcare sector also frequently selects pellets as the optimal marketable form of functional food. As there are quite a number of existing techniques relating to the production of pellets, it is often very difficult for a formulator or marketing manager to make a choice, since every technique claims to be optimal.
This workshop aims to elaborate the advantages and drawbacks of the individual techniques, focusing on the optimal spectrum of each one but also consider the economical and ergonomical aspects of manufacturing processes. On special request of various participants, this workshop has been extended to include lectures on the main excipients for pelletizing and pellet coating, on functional pellet coating, compression of pellets into tablets, capsule filling and the most suitable capsule materials. All speakers are specialized, experienced and renowned experts from science and industry.
