Dissolution Training

1 Day

This training course provides a comprehensive overview of the entire dissolution testing process.

We cover all the basic theory behind dissolution, look at the use of type 1 and type 2 apparatus, including calibration, calculation and evaluation of results and method development considerations.

This not only provides a good introduction to those new to dissolution but also provides substantial information to labs looking to develop their own methods or improve existing practice—an invaluable insight into dissolution testing.

Basics of Dissolution Testing

  • Overview of the human GI tract
  • Conventional oral solid dose formulations
  • Apparatus 1 and 2 methods
  • Typical system setup

Dissolution Media

  • Role of the media
  • Common additives
  • Deaeration

Sampling Methods

  • Manual and automated sampling
