Please be advised that training course 536 Strategies for Formulations Development - How to Get the Right Data in the Right Amount at the Right Time has been rescheduled to Nov 20 - Nov 21.

Good strategies are needed to get the right data in the right amount at the right time. Learn how to speed up the formulation development process by producing quality formulations in a timely manner. This includes focusing on the development of strategic approaches and taking a broad view of formulation using screening designs and investigating formulation components and process variables in the same experimental program. This training course will help scientists and engineers working on formulation development to be successful, developing formulations quickly and efficiently.

During this training course, you will learn how to create formulation design spaces and perform associated risk analysis, optimize multiple criteria, such as the quality, cost, and performance of product formulations, design and analyze formulation studies that involve both formulation components and process variables using methods that reduce the required experimentation by up to 50%, and reduce mistakes, meet deadlines, avoid wasted experimentation and reduce the cost of experimentation in terms of time, personnel and funds.

  1. Develop strategies and associated experiment designs for formulation development
  2. Design and analyze screening experiments involving a large number of components that will identify components with major effects
  3. Develop ability to construct, conduct and interpret optimization studies
  4. Select and utilize graphical procedures that will effectively display results and the effects of formulation ingredients
  5. Minimize the number of experiments needed to study simultaneously the effects of process variables and formulation ingredients
