Pharmaceutical Workshop in Partnership with Evonik

EUDRAGIT® Technical Workshop was held by the cooperation of Evonik and Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients (T) Ltd. The total of 78 participants from pharmaceutical companies, R&D institutes, as well as university lecturers attended this one-day event at Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit Hotel on 31st March 2017. The workshop started with a warm welcome and introduction by Mr Paul Chan, Managing Director of Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients (T) Ltd. and Evonik’s lab opening introduction and presentation by Mr Yann d'Herve, Evonik Vice President Global Sales & Services. In addition, the introduction session was broadcast LIVE in JJIT Pharma & Personal Care’s official Facebook account. All participants were invited to add and follow in order to receive Pharma & Personal Care updated information in the industry including new product promotions.
The morning topics being presented were introduction of Evonik and BL-Healthcare, customized release profiles with Eudragit®- tailored to your specific needs, important parameters and trouble shooting for working with Eudragit®, and drug layering and functional coatings in fluid bed equipment /technical aspects from R&D to production by special speaker from Glatt GmbH, Mr Roger Schütz, Process Expert. In the afternoon, the participants were divided into 2 big groups. The first group went to Evonik’s lab to learn about lab demonstration: pellet coating using Midi-Glatt, Eudragit® L30D-55 with pH adjustment preparation, and posters and videos session. After an hour, the first group was rotated to the other session taking place at the hotel. Meanwhile at the hotel, the second group learned about optimization of cleaning process using Chematic® formulated detergents targeted for the Eudragit® product line presented by special speaker, Ms Priya Poduval, Chematic Technical Sales Specialist from Dober. After 1 hour, this group was also rotated to Evonik’s lab.
We received many positive feedbacks from the attendees. They like every session because they could understand better and also impressed the topics about cleaning Eudragit® by Dober and Glatt operation technique which was very useful. Furthermore, the customers were interested in bringing their R&D projects to work in Evonik’s Lab in the near future. This seminar has further enhanced Evonik and Jebsen & Jessen Ingredients (T) Ltd. image and strengthened the relationship with the customers. Together we are positive that this valuable workshop will be arranged for the customers again in the future.
