Spray-drying/spray-congealing

Spray-drying/spray-congealing
Product Description

Spray Drying is an instant and continuous solvent evaporation process of a liquid feed, atomised in a heated gas, generating a final dried solidified particle.

The heated drying gas moves in co-flow with the atomised feed in the process chamber where the gas transfers its heat energy to the droplets and absorbs the solvent from the droplets. The humidified cooled gas transports the particle to a cyclone, separating the final particles from the gas.

By Spray Drying particles can be engineered to a specific size, shape and function by formulating the liquid feed and designing the process.

Applications: Solubility enhancement, Encapsulation, Taste masking, Modified Release, Inhalation, Flow-ability improvement, Physico-chemical Stabilisation

    Product Formulation development

    70% of the new chemical entities (NCEs) synthesized are poorly soluble compounds, resulting in a low bioavailability. Bioavailability enhancement is the number one challenge in formulation development today. Xedev can help overcome complex bioavailability challenges and accelerate drug development process through superior formulation technologies and rigorous data-driven scientific approach. One of the main approaches to increase the solubility is by creating an amorphous solid dispersion. Amorphous solid dispersions can be created by different technologies such as spray-drying, spray-congealing and bead coating. After processing, the API is molecular dispersed in a polymeric matrix. The polymer is used to stabilise the amorphous, metastable form of the drug and sustain superstaturation of the API in biological fluids, thereby increasing the bioavailability.

  • Process development, optimization and scale-up

    Product Process development, optimization and scale-up

    Xedev is specialized in process development.

    Do you have a drying, granulation of coating process which need optimization, Xedev can help you with the development, optimization and scale-up of your process.

    We are using a stepwise approach to transfer your material to your own facilities or to an external contractor. After formulation development and the first feasibility trials,the process is ready for the scaling-up preparation step. In a first phase the critical process parameters are identified together with the main quality attributes of your product. In a second step the process window is determined based on a design of experiments principle (DoE). With a well-defined process window taking the risks into account, your product is ready for the transfer.

  • Twin-screw extrusion - hot melt extrusion

    Product Twin-screw extrusion - hot melt extrusion

    Hot melt extrusion is a commonly applied continuous technology to fabricate amorphous solid dispersions of poorly soluble drugs to enhance the dissolution and the bioavailability. The API and the polymer are getting molten due to the high shear forces and elevated temperature followed by complete homogenization of the components. When the extrudate exits the die attached to the equipment, it solidifies suddenly providing no chance for the API to crystallize. Afterward, the extrudate can be forwarded for milling e.g. with a conveying belt. With continuous extrusion, you can minimize your material cost by reducing the amount of API needed for feasibility studies.
