Solid Dose Drug Design

Product Design
Safety by Design—Mitigating the Risk of Medication Errors Through Product Design
The increasing prevalence and high cost of medication errors have prompted regulators and manufacturers to look into the role of product design in ensuring the safe and correct use of medicines. Experts share insights on how product appearance such as size, shape, color, and imprint can make a difference in reducing medication errors.

Modular Systems

Modular Systems
Using Modular Systems in Solid-Dosage Manufacturing
Modular systems offer a more efficient way to design and build manufacturing facilities. Although recent focus in the pharmaceutical industry has been on using modular systems in biopharmaceutical processing, the same advantages can be applied to small-molecule API and solid-dosage product manufacturing. The authors describe how modular systems can be applied to continuous solid-dosage and nutraceutical manufacturing.

Quality by Design

Quality by Design
A Quality-by-Design Approach to Optimize In-Process Curing of EUDRAGIT NM 30 D
Previous studies with EUDRAGIT NM 30 D showed that storage stability can be achieved with in-process curing at specific conditions. The aim of this study was to identify and investigate the influence and correlation of critical process parameters for the optimization of in-process curing.
