Optimizing Spray Drying Strategies for Commercial Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Life Sciences, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain, Pharmaceutical,
  • Tuesday, January 21, 2020

The use of spray drying to manufacture amorphous dispersions is continuing to grow due to the number of drug candidates exhibiting poor solubility. Apart from addressing solubility, spray drying is a reproducible processing technology that offers improved production efficiency that can potentially reduce cost and time-to-market. Phase-appropriate Quality by Design framework can increase the understanding of the interplay between the process parameters of spray drying and product quality that, when applied during scale-up, increases the chances of a successful outcome of the commercial manufacturing process. 

It is essential to select a robust formulation in the early phase for easier scale-up during development and manufacturing. Small-scale experiments, risk assessments and process development experience and knowledge are keys to a successful scale-up strategy. 

Register for this webinar to get insights from industry experts on:

  • Determining when spray drying is the right technology for bioavailability enhancement
  • The importance of process and formulation parameters that need to be addressed for successful commercial scale-up
  • The importance of the optimization of process parameters and understanding possible pitfalls during execution
  • How integrated services can minimize risk and save cost and time on development and manufacturing process
