Glatt Technology Series: Multi-Particulate Drug Delivery Systems

Glatt Pharmaceutical Services, in conjunction with BASF Pharma

27 June 2024 │ Ramsey, New Jersey


Glatt Technical Series III will focus on the versatility of Multi-Particulate Drug Delivery Systems in manufacturing solid oral dosage forms. These systems include microcapsules, beads, pellets, and nanoparticles.

The technical series will begin with the benefits of Wurster bottom spray processing for coating pellets and particles used in multi-particulate systems. Wurster processing ensures high-quality and economical coating.

In addition, BASF will feature new content regarding Functional Film Coating, focusing on the formulation and process design for reliable drug release using its new pharmaceutical-grade polymers.

With a robust process and a wide variety of coating choices, the tech series will end with a focus on multi-particulate drug delivery systems and unparalleled design space for creating an ideal formulation for almost any drug product. Such a formulation can help reduce the risk of dose dumping, lower systemic toxicity, minimize variation in bioavailability, and enable other product-specific functionality.

This tech series is an excellent opportunity for pharmaceutical formulators and manufacturing engineers to learn about techniques, technology, and new materials that help increase bioavailability and solubility of oral solid dosage forms. The event will conclude with a live Glatt Fluid Bed Technology demonstration using BASF’s new polymers. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to tour the Glatt Pharmaceutical Services manufacturing facility.


Course Fee:        $200.00


The tech series will start at 8:30 am on Thursday, 27th June 2024, and finish at 2:30 pm.
