Programme offers tablet training


Two of the UK’s leading pharmaceutical bodies have once again joined forces to offer intensive training in tabletting and its associated processes.

Tabletting Technology for the Pharmaceutical Industry, organised by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain in partnership with the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences, focuses on basic concepts of equipment selection, granulation and end-point determination, formulation optimisation and prediction, in-process monitoring, film coating and official and non-official dissolution tests.

The course, to be held in Cambridge between November 24-26, will focus on presentations on the main subjects, together with interactive workshops that discuss real problems encountered in day-to-day work. There is also a social programme consisting of a welcome reception and course dinners.

Dr Kendal Pitt, the course leader, said: “This course provides an excellent opportunity to learn more about the essentials of the formulation of tablets. The workshops will provide a platform for informal discussions and problem-solving sessions with the course tutors.

“The course is also a perfect opportunity to network with other professionals in the field. I encourage anyone looking for a thorough introduction to the production and formulation of tablets to attend this course.”
