This eLearning module explores the principles of particle size analysis, especially using the Malvern instrument. It will also provide an overview of components and operation of the analyzer.
|Who is it for||
This module is relevant to quality control and quality assurance team members who conduct and evaluate particle size data
|Why it matters||
Pharmaceutical raw materials are processed through grinding, sieving, micronizing and blending operations. Each of these operations affect particle size which is critical to final drug product quality. Finer particles, dissolve quicker, and the speed of dissolution has direct effects on bioavailability and effectiveness of a drug. Understanding the theory and applications of particle size determination is crucial for analysts.
