Learn about the revised industry standards of one of the most critical process in OSD

More than ever, processes are demanding precision, thanks to the new challenging formulations. Production is demanding efficiency, thanks to the cut throat competition. Regulations are demanding compliance, thanks to the improved quality standards. More than ever, the industry is demanding TECHNOLOGY.

As an essential technology for the production of oral solid dosage forms, GRANULATION as a process is employed by every OSD manufacturing facility globally. This webinar will provide an overview of recent innovations in granulation technology in terms of Safety, Design and Compliance. It will encompass the crucial aspects of the granulation process efficiency and other critical parameters to watch out for with solutions to commonly faced process challenges.

The webinar also focusses on how ACG Engineering, through its latest integrated granulation suite, The GT X•ONE - a state of the art wet granulator & fluid bed processor with a process control platform compliant to all current industry standards, provides for improvements in the delivery & qualification of new granulation manufacturing facilities, process efficiency, cleaning and GMP compliance.

Our experts in granulation technology possess over 25 years of experience in handling 1000+ formulations.
