Leistritz Pharmaceutical-Nutraceutical Extrusion Seminar

June 06 - June 07, 2018
175 Meister Avenue, Somerville, NJ 08876

Leistritz will host its’ Pharmaceutical-Nutraceutical Extrusion Seminar on June 6-7, 2018 that will focus on the latest melt extrusion and granulation technologies for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products.  This “hands-on” seminar starts with the basics and explains why the continuous twin screw extrusion process is the preferred manufacturing method to make a consistent and repeatable dosage delivery mechanism.  Some of the topics include:

  • Twin screw extrusion theory and design: co-rotating and counterrotating
  • Screw and process section fundamentals
  • Upstream and downstream technologies
  • Die design and computer modelling
  • Staging of unit operations to facilitate continuous mixing and drying
  • Scale-up of the extrusion process- R&D, pilot scale and production
  • Cleaning and maintenance of extrusion equipment in a cGMP environment
  • Equipment and process validation practices and documentation
  • Advantages of continuous extrusion as compared to batch processes
  • New emerging extrusion technologies, i.e. supercritical foaming and in-line drying

Early registration, by May 4, 2018, is $820; after this date cost is $920.
