Developing Dissolution Testing Strategies

5-week online course | 2 hours per week

20 January - 2 March 2020

Online Academy

Dissolution testing poses a major challenge to the pharmaceutical, biotech and generics industries both in terms of method development and regulatory compliance.

This 5-week online course will explain the history, benefits, importance and role of dissolution testing in drug development today. Using practical examples and case studies throughout, delegates will gain a thorough understanding of setting and establishing specifications for optimum dissolution testing.

  • Clarify global regulatory requirements
  • Assess new scientific developments and trends
  • Design optimum method development strategies
  • Identify the factors affecting dissolution
  • Drive product performance and quality control
  • Study design considerations for IVIVC Studies 
  • A whole module devoted to case study examples
  • Gain a practical introduction to the intricacies of dissolution testing with an emphasis on problems and problem solving
  • Select optimum test conditions and method development
  • Ensure your test methods are properly validated
  • Enhance the dissolution rate and bioavailability of your compound
  • Clarify the theory and regulatory aspects involved in developing IVIVC models
