  1. 100% visual inspection of tablets produced with continuous direct compression and coating

    Contributor(s): Barimani, Shirin, Sibanc, Rok, Tomazevic, Dejan, Meier, Robin, Kleinebudde, Peter

    Visual appearance of tablets is an important property for patients. Since the visual appearance is most strongly influenced by the applied coating, this necessitates a high level of process control and homogeneity in the coating process. In recent years, a number of tablet coaters have been...

  2. 3D Printed Reactors for Synthesis of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients in Continuous Flow

    Contributor(s): Maier, MC, Valotta, AHiebler, K, Soritz, S, Gavric, K, Grabner, B, Gruber-Woelfler, H

    Advances in flow chemistry to produce active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) require performing reactions in tailor-made equipment as complexity of the planned setups increases. To react quickly and with low costs to these demanding reactions, additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing,...

  3. 3D printing and continuous flow chemistry technology to advance pharmaceutical manufacturing in developing countries

    Contributor(s): Sagandira, CR, Siyawamwaya, M, Watts, P

    The realization of a downward spiralling of diseases in developing countries requires them to become self-sufficient in pharmaceutical products. One of the ways to meet this need is by boosting the local production of active pharmaceutical ingredients and embracing enabling technologies. Both 3D...

  4. 7-Step Flow Synthesis of the HIV Integrase Inhibitor Dolutegravir

    Peer-reviewed journal | Contributor(s): Ziegler, RE, Desai, BKJee, JA, Gupton, BF, Roper, TD, Jamison, TF

    Dolutegravir (DTG), an important active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) used in combination therapy for the treatment of HIV, has been synthesized in continuous flow. By adapting the reported GlaxoSmithKline process chemistry batch route for Cabotegravir, DTG was produced in 4.5h in sequential...

  5. A brief review on Process Analytical Technology (PAT)

    Peer-reviewed journal | Contributor(s): Mali, Akash, Jagtap, Monali, Karekar, P., Maruska, A

    Process analytical technology (PAT) has been defined as a mechanism to design, analyze and control pharmaceutical manufacturing processes through measurement of critical process parameters which affect critical quality attributes. PAT checks the quality of raw material attributes both physically...

  6. A Combined Feed-Forward/Feed-Back Control System for a QbD-Based Continuous Tablet Manufacturing Process

    Peer-reviewed journal | Contributor(s): Singh, Ravendra, Muzzio, Fernando J, Ierapetritou, Marianthi, Ramachandran, Rohit

    Continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing together with PAT (Process Analytical Technology) provides a suitable platform for automatic control of the end product quality as desired by QbD (quality by design)-based efficient manufacturing. The precise control of the quality of the pharmaceutical...

  7. A Compact Device for the Integrated Filtration, Drying, and Mechanical Processing of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients

    Peer-reviewed journal | Contributor(s): Capellades, G, Neurohr, CAzad, M, Brancazio, D, Rapp, K, Hammersmith, G, Myerson, AS

    Recent changes in the pharmaceutical sector call for the development of novel manufacturing approaches to reduce costs and improve control over product quality. In this area, the development of compact, plug-and-play devices that fit in a continuous manufacturing system has gained interest in...

  8. A comparative review of multi-rate moving horizon estimation schemes for bioprocess applications

    Peer-reviewed journal | Contributor(s): Elsheikh, Mohamed, Hille, Rubin Tatulea-Codrean, Alexandru, Kramer, Stefan

    Advanced control and monitoring of bioprocesses are dependent on accurate state and parameter information. At the same time, bioprocesses are well known for their time-varying behavior and difficulty of obtaining online measurements of the important process states. The selection and the tuning of...

  9. A Comparison Between Lab-Scale and Hot-Melt-Extruder-Based Anti-inflammatory Ointment Manufacturing

    Peer-reviewed journal | Contributor(s): Thakkar, R, Ashour, EAShukla, A, Wang, R, Chambliss, WG, Bandari, S, Murthy, N, Repka, MA

    Hot-melt extrusion (HME) has been extensively investigated for continuous manufacturing of amorphous solid dispersions, to improve the solubility of poorly water-soluble drug substances, impart abuse deterrence to controlled substances, taste masking for pediatric and geriatric formulations and...

  10. A comprehensive analysis and optimization of continuous twin-screw granulation processes via sequential experimentation strategy

    Peer-reviewed journal | Contributor(s): Meng, Wei, Rao, Kallakuri Suparna, Snee, Ronald D., Ramachandran, Rohit., Muzzio, Fernando J

    Nowadays twin-screw granulation has been emerging as an attractive continuous wet granulation technique. This study was geared towards better process design and understanding with emphasis on bridging the knowledge gap between input and output variables by employing sequential experimentation...
