From Bench to Pilot Plant

Process Research in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Edited by Mehdi Nafissi, John A. Ragan, and Keith M. DeVries

ACS Symposium Series

In many industries there is a gap between formulations in the laboratory and successful scale-ups in production, especially in pharmaceuticals. This book is an important step in bridging that gap. It describes ways to build between research, product development and manufacturing within the pharmaceutical industry and examines problems of transferring recent progresses in research methodology to scale up and ultimately to manufacturing. There is also discussion of biotechnology product development and manufacturing and the multidisciplinary efforts required for successful drug development.
