This webinar provides some practical and useful answers to the question: “What Strategies Should I Use to Speed Up Formulation Development?” A strategy based on QbD principles that have been proven to effectively and efficiently develop useful multi-component formulations is presented in this webinar. A critical goal is the creation of formulation understanding and design space that will consistently produce a product that meets specifications with minimal risk of failure. This strategy will be described and discussed along with several examples of its use.
Why Should You Attend:
In this webinar, you will learn
The life sciences industries are going through tremendous changes that have been increased by the recent global financial challenges. In order to help pharmaceutical and biotech companies improve their operations, the FDA is promoting the use of Quality-by-Design (QbD). Much work has been done on the QbD concept of a “design space” from a manufacturing process perspective but little has been done on using QbD in formulation development including the development of formulation design spaces. Formulation studies typically involve the optimization of multiple ingredients including the API, lubricants, binders, disintegrants, etc. Such optimization can be seen as a difficult challenge when a large number of components are involved which the case is typically.
