Join us for a free webinar: Tuesday, December 6, 2016 11:00 a.m. ET

Encapsulated products are on the rise as new chemical and biologic entities require their simplicity, elimination of heat and expedited speed to market for smaller targeted cohorts. The ability to use capsules successfully in the manufacturing environment starts with the earliest decisions by formulators making appropriate choices and concludes with operations providing the targeted training and equipment optimization.

This webinar is designed to step through a series of practical strategies for mitigating risk from beginning to successful conclusion and will discuss the quality solutions that can put you ahead of the game.

A black belt quality engineer, formulation scientist and technical service engineer will share their experiences in reducing variability by polymer choice, ensuring the formula and the equipment match, and covering the proactive use of equipment maintenance and standardized procedures on the manufacturing floor.


Key Learning Points:

Using the capsule as a form of risk management.
Approaches to managing risk and optimizing time savings during encapsulated drug development and production.
Equipment training and optimization that is key before and during production runs.
