K-Tron, NETZSCH, Malvern, Particle Sciences Drug Development Services to Present Complimentary Technical Seminar

September 23, 2013

K-Tron announces collaboration with NETZSCH, Malvern, and Particle Sciences Drug Development Services, presenting a complimentary technical seminar, “Nanotechnologies: Advances in Pharmaceutical Processing & Measurement,” offering processors detailed information on the advances in material handling and nanotechnologies for the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.

This one-day event will be offered twice for added flexibility, Tuesday, October 15 and Thursday, October 17 at the Wyndham Garden Exton Hotel in Exton, PA, from 8am to 4pm. The seminar is free-of-charge and includes breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. Online registration is required at www.ktron.com/nano

The technical seminar examines a wide variety of important processing technologies and offers an objective technical overview introducing participants to methods of both improving current operations and utilizing new process technologies. It is recommended for anyone handling dry powders in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, including scientists, engineers, production and manufacturing personnel, researchers, formulation scientists, product development and process transfer personnel. The program covers feeding and conveying APIs and difficult powders, grinding and dispersing, thermal analysis, particle size analysis, and contract manufacturing.

There will be a wet media milling demonstration of the DeltaVita 15-300, which will include the following: slurry preparation, mixing technique, mill assembly, grinding media selection and loading, flow circuit and processing, parameter evaluation, and QC analysis including particle size measurement. A separate demo will showcase high-accuracy feeding for the low rate addition of powders/APIs via twin-screw loss-in-weight feeding.
