Hands-On Course in Tablet Technology

This course is intended to provide an overview of the fundamental concepts of the technology for preparation of uncoated/coated tablet products including hot melt extrudates. Participants will work in teams to prepare uncoated/coated tablet dosage forms including hot melt extrudates and conduct selected relevant testing for evaluation and quality control.

Lectures will include topics in the tableting processes and hot melt extrusion, such as preformulation, extrusion, granulation, tableting, and coating, as well as stability, validation, product evaluation, FDA regulatory requirements, and SUPAC guidelines.

The Laboratory will consist of “20 hours of hands-on training” and include preformulation, hot-melt extrusion, granulation, tableting, coating, and tablet evaluation.

This course changed its venue from the University of Tennessee to The University of Mississippi in September of 2013. The course was initiated and held at UTenn for over 15 years.
