In this webinar, we take a look into a running hot melt extrusion process in our R&D labs located in Darmstadt, Germany, in order to provide you with a hands-on experience of the process. We will also offer guidance on the processing of the extrudate and the versatile downstream options to create your final dosage forms.
This webinar is part 3 of our series, "Shaping the Future of Solid Dose Manufacturing with Hot Melt Extrusion" in cooperation with Thermo Fisher Scientific and MeltPrep.

Daniel Treffer, Ph.D.
Founder and CEO
Daniel Treffer is the founder of MeltPrep which develops dedicated equipment for ASD and implant formulation development work of thermoplastic formulations. The proprietary and patented VCM technology is based on his Ph.D. findings. Professor Khinast supervised his work at the RCPE in Graz, Austria, from 2011 to 2016. Daniel faced several challenges in hot melt extrusion development projects and recognized the need for novel tools for faster and lower material usage for formulation developments. His invention, vacuum compression molding (VCM), can prepare extrusion-like samples with a few mg of material.
