Novel Continuous Activated Granulation

Life Sciences, Pharma Manufacturing and Supply Chain,
  • Friday, October 21, 2016

One of the most commonly used pharmaceutical manufacturing processes is granulation. Granulation is extensively used in the manufacturing of tablets or capsules which are most common ways in which therapeutic molecules are administered to patients. It is therefore not surprising that most efforts at developing continuous processes have been aimed at granulation.

This webinar will focus on the following topics:

  • Shortcomings associated with the current batch manufacturing processes
  • Advantages of continuous processing in general
  • Limitations observed in continuous processors today
  • Introduction to true continuous granulation technologies and the associated advantages
  • STEERLife’s proprietary Continuous Activated Granulation technologies – continuous wet granulation, moisture and shear activated dry granulation and melt granulation
  • Case studies.


Dr. Babu Padmanabhan, Managing Director and Chief Knowledge Officer, STEERLife

Dr. Babu’s journey began with a vision — to steer a new world. He has made significant contributions to the field of polymer processing. His work in designing processing section components has led to the development of intelligent compounding technology that has redefined Pharmaceutical manufacturing. The fractional lobed processor (FLP) invented by him provides critical breakthrough in continuous granulation.
