Project: Evaluation of the compression properties of pharmaceutical formulations using a rotative tablet press

project duration
01-DEC-06 – 31-DEC-07
abstract
A fully instrumented tablet press will be used: 1. for the tabletting of granules prepared via continuous granulation (twin-screw extruder) 2. for the evaluation of the tabletting properties of powders produced via co-spray draying of drug and excipients 3. for the evaluation of the effect of an extended dwell time during compression and of a constant tablet density on the tablet properties (hardness, desintegration, drug release)
