3/17/2021 10:25 - 11:00

3D powder bed printing offers huge potential benefits in pharmaceutical manufacturing, but limited information is available on excipient selection in relationship to functionality in the dosage form in literature.

In this presentation we investigate the benefits of powder based 3D printing by utilizing a base formulation of lactose monohydrate and pregelatinized starch. Both powder characterization as well as the impact of print settings and formulations on tablet properties will be discussed.
