On December 6, Pharmaceutical Processing facilitated the webinar “Encapsulation: Practical Strategies for Risk Management,” which was sponsored by Capsugel. I had the opportunity to host this discussion as the moderator of the webinar.

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.

What you’ll learn:

  • We will present various applications for particle micronization in pharmaceutical formulations and its use with a range of complementary technologies.
  • Application of micronization to enable specific drug formulations will be described through representative case studies.
  • The range of milling process and equipment choice and capabilities will also be discussed, including choice of mill type and process parameters, containment/high potency requirements, and scale-up considerations.
