bstract of the presentation

Novel rotary fluid bed systems offers significant advantages over standard top or bottom spray fluid bed technologies. These advantages include denser, more spherically shaped particles when granulating, uniform and accurate film coverage when coating, and the ability to spheronize and drug layer with a high degree of efficiency. This new technology takes these capabilities to a higher level providing a higher yield of product in the desired particle size range and a more uniform drug distribution levels across all particle sizes. An overview of this technology along with case studies will be presented.
