Powders are widely used in a range of applications within the pharmaceutical, chemical, metallurgical and food industries. They are three-phase systems containing complex and variable solid particles, as well as an unquantified amount of air and a degree of moisture. As a result, powder behaviour is an intricate interaction of ... read more
Effective analysis is key for the successful continuous manufacturing of solid dosage pharmaceuticals.
More pharmaceutical companies are becoming interested in continuous processing, but they may face an “analytics gap,” because continuous will require a different approach to analytics. In Filing the Analysis Gap in the Move to Continuous Processing ... read more
