In-depth Look into Softgel Formulation, Manufacturing and Troubleshooting

Softgels are widely popular dose forms for liquid that represent the most important oral form for less than 5 milliliters of liquid. Additionally, softgels are vital as a lipid delivery system, enhancing both solubility and permeation of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) by targeting the lipid absorption route. Softgels may appear to be a simple, two-part… Continue reading In-depth Look into Softgel Formulation, Manufacturing and Troubleshooting

Precision Tools for Error Reduction

Human error is known to be the primary cause of quality and production losses in many industries. Although human error is unlikely to ever be eliminated, many human performance problems can be prevented. Human errors start at the design stage. From procedures, training, and workplace environment, many variables that affect human behavior CAN be managed,… Continue reading Precision Tools for Error Reduction

Surfactants: Chemistry, Theory,and Application

The high surface tension of water presents challenges to a formulator who attempts to develop products that will properly wet surfaces, disperse pigments, emulsify key components, or even generate or destabilize foam. This accredited course on surfactants (chemistry, theory, mechanism, and application) initially reviews the various types and chemical structures of commercially available surfactants. An… Continue reading Surfactants: Chemistry, Theory,and Application

Optimization of Powders for Flowability

There are several metrics that formulators use to quantify the flowability of powder blends, including angle of repose, Carr and Hausner ratios, FFC, and flow energies. They all have one thing in common: none will predict whether or not a powder will flow in a hopper. Frequently, powders that are deemed easy flowing exhibit flow… Continue reading Optimization of Powders for Flowability
