This webinar provides some practical and useful answers to the question:
"What Strategies Should I Use to Speed Up Formulation Development?"
A strategy based on QbD principles that have been proven to effectively and efficiently develop useful multi-component formulations is presented in this webinar. A critical goal is the creation of formulation understanding and design space that will consistently produce a product that meets specifications with minimal risk of failure. This strategy will be described and discussed along with several examples of its use.
Why you should Attend
What a Participant will learn how to:
- Approach the development process from a strategic viewpoint, with the overall end in mind.
- Design screening experiments to identify those components that are most important to the performance of the formulation.
- Design optimization experiments to identify the optimum responses in the design space.
- Analyze both screening and optimization experiments using graphical and numerical methods.
- Construct Design spaces and assess and the associated risk
- Optimize multiple criteria, such as the quality, cost, and performance of product formulations.
- Design and analyze formulation studies that involve both formulation components and process variables using methods that reduce the required experimentation by up to 50%.
