Hands-on Course in Tablet Technology
The Hands-on Course in Tablet Technology is a post-graduate educational program offered by the Pii Center for Pharmaceutical Technology that provides an extensive review of conventional and advanced manufacturing technologies, including hot-melt extrusion, that is used to develop a variety of novel delivery and continuous manufacturing systems. The course, initiated in 1998, has trained over 2,000 attendees.
The Advanced Hands-on Course in Tablet Technology, first offered by the Pii Center for Pharmaceutical Technology in partnership with Ashland Specialty Ingredients in 2022, provides targeted training in designated areas of oral solid dosage form design, including extended-release formulation, compaction simulation, tablet and bead coating, continuous manufacturing, hot-melt extrusion and IVIVC construction.
Industry and academia experts present lectures and supervise laboratory exercises that provide a scientific overview of the entire tableting operation and extensive hands-on experience with advanced technology associated with developing and manufacturing tablets.
Lectures explore the concepts of tablet design using QbD principles, process validation, product evaluation, FDA guidelines for product development and manufacturing. The laboratory portion of the course allows attendees to obtain hands-on practical experience in unit operations.
Attendees include domestic and international cross-functional representatives (e.g. R&D management/technical/regulatory, QC, manufacturing, sales and marketing) from the pharmaceutical, dietary supplement, animal health and food industries; regulatory agencies (e.g. FDA, Health Canada) and raw material/equipment suppliers.
