Tablet Formulation Development in practice

  • Material characterisation for product development
  • Direct compression
  • Wet granulation
  • Drying
  • Milling
  • Compression
  • Formulation evaluation and final selection


Wherever possible participants should bring practical problems and examples which can be reviewed on the course. The course will be highly participative and useful for people with or without formulation experience.

The course is designed for people new to tablet development, and those requiring a refresher in the area. It will also benefit Process Development experts wishing to extend their understanding of why products processes can go wrong, and regulatory and quality personnel who need to understand the development process.

Numbers are restricted for maximum benefit to participants
