The 12th Central European Symposium on Pharmaceutical Technology and Regulatory Affairs (CESPT) was held in Hungary, September 20-22, 2018. CESPT offers a good opportunity for fostering the application of the results of new approaches for the accelerated development and introduction of safer and more effective medicines. Additionally, it serves as a strong and stable background for permanent dialogue between pharmacists and other scientists working in the fields of pharmaceutical R&D or manufacturing.
Freund-Vector’s Andrea Gelain, Process Development Scientist, presented a poster entitled, “Wurster Coating PAT Monitoring by NIR: Calibration vs PCA Trend Approach”. This poster followed the Wurster coating process trend using NIR technology and to determine real-time deviations from the correct process path.
Andrea was able to show that the Wurster coating process had a very strong correlation between the absorbances read by the NIR instrument and the quality of coating suspension sprayed. To learn more about this study, please visit Freund-Vector’s Slideshare page.
