2010 AAPS Annual Meeting – Highlights

American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) MeetingThis week, I was in New Orleans attending the 2010 American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Annual Meeting. The AAPS Meeting combines a large trade show with technical presentation and poster sessions running in parallel.

At the 2010 AAPS meeting, hot topics included Quality by Design (QbD), Process Analytical Technology (PAT) and the drive towards real-time release for pharmaceutical products. FBRM and PVM technologies were well represented with numerous posters and presentations focusing on their use to understand, optimize and control particle size distribution during drug product formulation.

In Process Particle Forum: Liquid and Solid Dosage Formulations

I am excited to be chairing the upcoming In Process Particle Forum focused on Liquid and Solid Dosage Formulations on September 15 in Woodbridge, NJ. This will be the third year in a row that METTLER TOLEDO has brought together expert users of FBRM and PVM to present their cutting edge research to a group of their peers. This year, we have the best agenda yet with four industry papers from:

  • Bristol-Myers Squibb
  • Merck
  • Johnson and Johnson
  • GlaxoSmithKline
