Cost-effective manufacturing for Pharmaceutical Oral Tablets and Quality Control

Technology Overview

The manufacturing process of tablets offers the optimization of new formulations with new active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) or new excipients. This provides opportunities to formulation scientists for selecting better excipients for an API to be delivered at the correct amount, appropriate rates, and time in desired locations.

The technology is a pipeline of research, development, and manufacturing of pharmaceutical tablets. The technology owner specializes in tablet manufacturing, looking into every complex aspect ranging from unit process, quality control to bioavailability of API. Their aim is to help industrial partners produce cost-effective pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and dietary supplement tablets. The key objective of the technology is to allow process efficiency and cost reduction when identifying suitability between API and excipients, as well as optimizing new tablet formulations at small scale.

The technology provider is seeking collaborations with both industry partners and academic collaborators for developing new tablet formulations, novel ways of manufacturing tablets and quality control of tablets.
