Pharmaceutical Technology Handbook


The pharmaceutical industry is growing both in terms of volume and diversity of new products. As years pass by, new technology both for manufacture and quality control is being introduced. It is essential to maintain a competitive edge concerning quality, cost, compliance, and prompt deliveries. The fresh graduates are lacking knowledge about the ongoings of industry and there is a gap between academic education and industry expectations from pharma graduates. This comprehensive updated Pharmaceutical Technology Handbook helps in reducing the gap in understanding technology, modern pharma equipment, and plant design to some extent. Divided into six sections, the articles presented in this book, in one way or another, touch all aspects of succeeding in a competitive situation. The highlight of this book is its focus on the layout for various manufacturing sections, each prepared by expert architects/consultants. The authors are conversant with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines and have been instrumental in delivering manufacturing units of global standards approved by various approving agencies.
