Course description

View Course Outline

Effervescent tablets have been used as products in the pharmaceutical and dietary industries for over two centuries. Rising demand for maintaining a healthier lifestyle is primarily responsible for driving the global effervescent products market. This is mainly due to the fact that effervescent products form a key ingredient of various dietary supplements, probiotics, and other commodities that can help a person attain a healthier lifestyle.

In addition, Effervescent Tablets are becoming increasingly popular in a variety of sectors due to the ease in which they can be consumed. These properties have transferred into the product development considerations in areas such as pharmaceutical, nutritional, beverages, dental care products, laundry detergents, and sanitizers.

This accredited training is divided into four 60-minute segments and will aid in understanding effervescent product design. This allows for product design, creation and formulation, processing, and final packaging control in obtaining the desired design performance. Participants will gain an understanding of the protective principle required to meet performance goals from a materials, formulation, and manufacturing design point of view.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
• Develop and test product performance targets for product design control
• Use test methods to troubleshoot performance and resolve stability issues
• Describe protective concepts and strategies to prevent unwanted Pre-fizzing
• Select ingredients, formulate and setup processes and environmental conditions to meet performance objectives

This course is intended for professionals in the Pharmaceutical, Nutritional, Diagnostics, Detergents, Sanitizer, Beverage, Personal Care, and Homecare Industries.

Personnel involved in Research, Quality, Validation, Analytical, Product Support, Marketing Support, and Technology Transfer will benefit greatly as well as Directors, Managers, Scientists, Developers, Specialists, Project Managers, and Team Leaders. Senior management should attend in order to realize the challenges R&D, formulators and developers may face while attempting to optimize an effervescent product performance.
