This part two of the webinar series will introduce participants to basic experimental considerations when choosing laser diffraction for particle size analysis. The presentation will explain what makes laser diffraction a “modern technique.” Both wet and dry case studies will be shown along with brief demonstration videos. In this webinar, you will learn:
Choosing an appropriate refractive index
Understanding the analysis results

Exosomes: Exploiting the Diagnostic and Therapeutic Potential of Nature’s Biological Nanoparticles
Dr. Niaz Khan | University of Maryland, School of Medicine (UMSOM)
| Register Here |
Research on exosomes and other forms of extracellular vesicles (EVs) have rapidly expanded over the last two decades. These lipid-enclosed, nanoscale messengers are released from cells packed with diverse cargo and can travel long distances to modify the function of target cells. Found in abundant quantities in biological fluids like blood, there is great clinical interest in using EVs as diagnostic markers or altering their properties for therapeutic delivery. Tune in to find out more about what exosomes are, how researchers study them, and what challenges remain. This talk will highlight multi-laser nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA) with the ViewSizer 3000 and what it offers in exosome research.

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.
