Wurster Fluid Bed Coating: Importance of Processing and Formulation for Success in Oral Pharmaceutical Delivery, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Share Article

In this free webinar, the featured speakers will explain a more intimate technical understanding of Wurster (bottom spray) coating technology and give an overview of common controlled release delivery challenges and coating strategies to meet them. Attendees will also learn about the processing and formulation scope of Oradel® delivery technology.

Equipment design and configuration, process parameters and product performance relationships are explored to help define optimal processing strategy and assure optimal process application.

The Wurster fluid bed process uses differential airflow to re-circulate particles through an atomized coating system. Process application was often viewed as an “art” due to the complex process dynamics and inadequate understanding of those dynamics. Core material re-circulation guarantees coating, but not coating quality. Optimal processing includes optimal particle flow, optimal drying or congealing temperature, optimal spray rate and optimal atomization.

The first portion of this webinar provides an in-depth look at Wurster process dynamics. It goes beyond the art of the process to scientific principles behind that art. Equipment design and configuration, process parameters and product performance relationships are explored to help define optimal processing strategy and assure optimal process application. Included are plate design considerations, process air needs, temperature influences, spray capacity, and atomization. This is extended to scaling practices and minimizing or eliminating scaling effects.

Beyond these processing concerns is the coating formulation. Expertise from over 50 years of Wurster fluid bed formulation development and application will be shared. Use of extended release, enteric, delayed release and multiple coating layers to achieve delivery goals will be discussed, including applicable coating strategies and integration of core particle engineering processes such as drug layering, granulation, extrusion-spheronization and drug-ion resin complexes.

Join expert speakers from Coating Place, Charles R. Frey, Vice President of Scientific Affairs and Jared McDonald, Director of Formulation Development, in a live webinar on Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at 2pm EDT to gain a deeper understanding of optimal Wurster fluid bed processing and coat formulation strategy, as well as the value of both in meeting oral pharmaceutical-controlled delivery goals.
