Getting to Know Hot Melt Extrusion: How Does it Support Drug Development and Which Excipients are Needed?



WEBINAR

In this webinar, we focus on the general hot melt extrusion process, the equipment employed in this technology as well as the requirements for excipients and, specifically, polymers to be used in this application.

This webinar is part 1 of our series, "Shaping the Future of Solid Dose Manufacturing with Hot Melt Extrusion" in cooperation with Thermo Fisher Scientific and MeltPrep.
