Including Hand-on Workshops

Target groups

Formulation scientists and Engineers in the pharmaceutical industry or academia who want to learn more about the usage of twin-screw processes in modern drug formulation.

Educational and case-study based lectures are followed by an extensive hands-on workshop to see e.g. injectable implant production in action. The seminar is also a superb possibility to connect to peer scientists and exchange ideas and knowledge.


Over the last 15-20 years Hot Melt Extrusion has become an established technology in pharmaceutical formulation development. In the beginning the main applications focused on solubility and bioavailability enhancement. In recent years the utilization of twin-screw extruders in the pharmaceutical industry broadened significantly. With the vison of continuous manufacturing twin-screw wet and melt granulation gained interest, as well as the production of polymer based drug delivery systems such as injectable implants.

This seminar covers the most interesting applications of parallel twin-screw extruders beyond solubility enhancement. Lectures from academia, industry and equipment manufacturers are accompanied by a hands-on workshop to see the extruder-based solutions in action.
