The modern pharmaceutical industry relies on effective powder handling and processing to make an increasingly sophisticated array of products ranging from controlled and rapid release tablets to inhaled therapeutics for respiratory illness. In this ebook we examine:

  • How multifaceted powder testing can support improved practice and outcomes in pharmaceutical development and manufacture.
  • The industry’s long association with powder testing and pioneering uptake of dynamic testing.
  • Relevant examples from formulation through to supply chain management that provide clear evidence of the insights that powder testing can deliver.

The pharmaceutical industry faces challenges on every front, from a pipeline of increasingly hard to formulate BCS Class II and IV drugs, to aggressive cost pressures on off patent and over-the-counter products, intensifying requirements for effective lifecycle management, and too easily disrupted supply chains. The right powder testing strategy can support efforts in all these areas. Find out how those leading the way in pharmaceutical manufacturing are capitalising on this potential and reaping the rewards.
