American Leistritz Extruder Corp. will hold its 12th annual Pharmaceutical Extrusion Seminar on June 7-8. Classroom sessions will be held at the Holiday Inn in Clinton, N.J., and extrusion demonstrations will be at the nearly Leistritz Process Laboratory in Somerville, N.J.
Early-bird registration, by May 12, costs $820. After that date, the cost is $920.
The hands-on seminar includes the basics on twin-screw extrusion for making consistent medical devices and dosage forms. It will cover topics such as design of screw elements, scale-up, simulation to optimize extrusion dies, processing of compounded materials in single- or twin-screw extrusion, hot-melt extrusion, downstream systems, clean rooms and foaming.
The session at the Leistritz lab will include a hands-on session for screw design and assembly/disassembly, where they will design screws “on the fly.”
