Development of Generic Solid Immediate Release Dosage Forms / Formulation and Analytical Method Development

    On request or in-house


    This 2.5-day in-house training course focuses on particular challenges of generic solid immediate release dosage forms development. It will help formulators to learn the ways of minimizing their experiments in a way to remove the analytical burden from the R&D analytical.

    Who should attend?

    Heads of R&D, Formulation Development Scientists, Formulation Technician, Analytical Scientists, R&D Analytical Chemists, R&D Associates, Principal Scientists – Pre-Formulation, Senior Research Scientists

    Learning Objectives

    Learning & Key Takeaways

    • Establishing an effective and cooperative relationship between the formulation development department and analytical research
    • The value of pre-formulation work – formulation development starts in the analytical laboratory
    • The importance of technology transfer which may become a rate limiting step in the completion of a project

    Key Topics

    • Establishing an effective generic drug development program
