Crystallization at the AIChE 2010 Annual Meeting

While reviewing the technical program for the upcoming 2010 American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Annual Meeting, I noticed several papers of interest to those of us who work in crystallization: Continue reading

Symposium on Green Processing in the Pharmaceutical & Fine Chemical Industries

Last week, John Tedesco and I had the privilege to attend the 3rd International Symposium on Green Processing in the Pharmaceutical & Fine Chemical Industries in Boston, MA. Continue reading

Association for Crystallization Technology 17th Larson Workshop

I am looking forward to attending the upcoming Larson Workshop hosted by the Association for Crystallization Technology and Bristol-Myers Squibb starting October 3. Continue reading

Optimization and Scale-up of Fluid Bed Processes

Fluid Bed Granulation and Coating from GEA and Niro Pharma SystemsSpray layering is increasingly being used to produce spherical pellets of a target particle distribution – often with engineered dissolution profiles for time-release formulations.

This extended abstract summarizes collaborative research between GEA (Niro) Pharma Systems and METTLER TOLEDO in the application of process analytical technologies (PAT) to the monitoring, optimization and control of Precision Fluid Bed Granulation and Fluid Bed Coating.

Download the extended abstract from the presentation given at the 7th World Meeting on Pharmaceutics, Biopharmaceutics, and Pharmaceutical Technology.

Andrew Birkmire, Dr. Kim Walters, GEA (Niro) Pharma

Reducing Time to Manufacturing Using Real-time In Situ FTIR Analytics as a Process Analytical Technology (PAT) Tool – On-Demand Webinar

The on-demand version of the Reducing Time to Manufacturing Using Real-time In Situ FTIR Analytics as a Process Analytical Technology (PAT) Tool webinar that I presented on January 20 is now available.

View the Reducing Time to Manufacturing On-Demand Webinar.


During this on-demand webinar, I review case studies from the pharmaceutical industry to show how real-time mid-infrared (mid-IR) analytics provide critical information that results in shorter process development timelines, including:

  • Intermediate detection during an indazole alkylation and scale-up – Pfizer
  • Hazardous gas detection during tetrazole synthesis – Merck
  • Monitoring a Grignard reaction at the multikilogram scale – Bristol-Myers Squibb
  • Scale-up involving a sensitive enolate – Johnson and Johnson (J&J)

If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, then please contact me.
