Separation Anxiety: Addressing Variation In Content Uniformity Data In Compression Processes
Pharmaceutical scientists are responsible for developing formulas and designing processes that ensure the content uniformity of tablets and capsules. Unfortunately, a number of scientists who formulate products and who select and/or design processing equipment lack in-depth understanding of powder blending and segregation. As a result, processes may be developed that are not capable of providing the required content uniformity of the dosage units. This article focuses on identifying and addressing variation in content uniformity.
