Course description

View Course Outline

Solid oral dosage forms such as tablets and capsules represent the most common type of pharmaceutical products produced. In the patient’s hand, a tablet can seem like a simple product not knowing there are numerous complexities that go into its manufacture. But for the manufacturer, without a clear understanding of the science behind the ingredients or the expertise in the granulation and compression process, unacceptable finished products may be produced.

The main purpose of this training course is to provide an introductory review of the process of making tablets. Once the tablet process requirements are understood, the material needs for both tableting and mixing are covered. The focus on mixing is by Direct Compression process. Here the course deals with mixture designs, mixing strategies, and mixture design verification. Handling and feeding systems are discussed with the target of prevention of segregation. The course concludes with generating tablet design verification data and the development of failure investigation strategies.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the basic design, development, and processes involved in the manufacturing of contemporary tablets by direct compression.
  • Conduct investigation more effectively using design verification data and developed investigation strategies.
