Next Webinar:

July 8th at 1:30 PM Eastern, 10:30 AM Pacific
Modern Particle Characterization Technique Series III: Dynamic Light Scattering
Dr. Jeff Bodycomb | Product Line Manager – HORIBA Instruments
| Register Here |

DLS, dynamic light scattering, is a fast, accurate, and popular method for analyzing nanoparticles and large molecules such as proteins and polymers. In this webinar Dr. Jeff Bodycomb reviews the technique along with comments on method development, application results, and data interpretation.  

Topics to be discussed will include:

  • What is DLS (dynamic light scattering)

  • When to use and avoid DLS

  • Method development

  • Understanding analysis results

July 22nd at 1:30 PM Eastern, 10:30 AM Pacific
Modern Particle Characterization Technique Series IV: Multi-laser Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA)
Dr. Sean Travers
| Register Here |

Multi-laser Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) is an advanced patented technology featuring three simultaneously operating lasers with independently adjustable power. This enables broad size distributions of, for example, biologics particle mixtures to be accurately analyzed for size and concentration. In this webinar, Dr. Sean Travers will offer a broad overview on how multi-laser NTA technique fits into the gene therapy space and where we and our collaborators see the applications going in the near future.

  • What is multi-laser nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA) and what are its capabilities and limitations?
  • Method development with case studies focusing on biologic preparation and stability and fluorescent antibody tagging.
  • Understanding analysis results.

Best Practices for Multiparticulate Formulations: The Importance of Computational Design and Process Analytical Technology
Charles Vesey | Formulation Technology Manager, Market Development – Colorcon
Chris O’Callaghan | Head of Engineering – Innopharma Technology
| Register Here |

Multiparticulate (MP) dosage forms provide opportunities to modulate drug release characteristics and target specific release sites within the GI tract. Fluid bed bottom-spray (Wurster) coating is routinely used to apply successive coating layers in the development and manufacture of these multiparticulate formulations. 

During development a key consideration is the amount of coating applied to achieve a target release profile. Typically, the quantity of coating is determined by the application of increasing percent weight gain until the desired release is obtained. While this approach has been successful, it’s time-consuming and lacks a strategy to achieve process control and long-term commercial success.  

Experts in multiparticulate applications from Colorcon and Innopharma Technology will discuss how computational design and PAT can help build more robust formulations, predict multiparticulate performance, and accelerate development by reducing traditional iterative trial and testing practices in development.  

Discover how the best practices and technology presented here will accelerate formulation development and improve quality outcomes for your multiparticulate formulations.  

What will attendees learn?  

  • How computational design and PAT can predict MP formulation performance and build quality into MP formulations. 

  • How to accelerate scale-up phase of development.

  • Gain insight to critical formulation and process attributes of MP functional performance.
