Overview

Tablets are solid dosage forms consisting of active ingredient(s) [active pharmaceutical ingredients or APIs] and suitable pharmaceutical excipients.

The manufacture of oral solid dosage forms such as tablets is a complex multi-stage process under which the starting materials change their physical characteristics a number of times before the final dosage form is produced. Numerous unit processes are involved in making tablets, including particle size reduction and sizing, blending, granulation, drying, compaction, and (frequently) coating.It is a key component in the pharmaceutical small molecule drug manufacturing process.

In this 2-day course, you will learn the basics behind the science and engineering of the process of producing tablets.
