MUMBAI, February 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

CPhI conferences announces a meeting of experts in the pharmaceuticals industry speaking on an area of vital importance in developing high quality APIs, taking place from 16 - 17 April 2013 at Hilton International Airport, Mumbai India.


Experts participating

Dr. Allan S. Myerson, Professor of the Practice of Chemical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA)

"Crystallization is a crucial purification step in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries. Control of purity, crystal size, crystal shape and polymorphism is a major factor in crystallization process development and downstream product development."

Dr. Myerson presents on continuous crystallization of pharmaceuticals which is one of his core area of expertise.

Dr. Robin Rogers, Robert Ramsay Chair of Chemistry, University of Alabama (USA) and Editor-in-Chief Crystal Growth & Design

"Understanding and controlling crystallization of an API can make or break a company, while finding new crystalline forms or crystallization processes can lead to new and exciting business opportunities."

Dr. Robin will be discussing issues around what happens when co-crystals don't crystallize.

Dr. Preetam Ghogale, Head Pre-formulations, Piramal Enterprises

"Crystallization pays! You just need to understand it better."

Dr. Preetam presents the role of solubility during crystallization by evaluating different solvent systems and combinations to achieve right crystallization.

Other experts include:

  • Dr. Agam Sheth, Principal Scientist, Merck Research Laboratories (USA)
  • Dr. Anant Paradkar, Director, Center for Pharmaceutical Engineering Science, University of Bradford (UK)   
  • Mr. Sethu Madhavan, Director Manufacturing, Teva API India and many more.

The Crystalization conference has been designed keeping the science for business perspective in mind. It addresses the most critical challenges of the pharmaceutical industry. There are discussions around techniques to achieve smooth scale up involving crystallization procedure. Furthermore, the important area of particle size, which is a key for developing APIs through crystallization, will be covered in depth. Crystallization is of vital importance for generics working on Polymorphs and hence there is a highlighted session on how crystallization can be effectively carried out to develop desired polymorphs.

This event has already generated interest in the industry with delegate registrations made by companies like Cipla, Ranbaxy Laboratories, Lupin, USV, Unimark Remedies, Shasun Pharmaceuticals, Alkem Laboratories, Aurobindo Pharma, Watson Pharma, Aarti Industries, Vardhman Chemtech, DSM Sinochem India, Srikrishna Pharma and so on.
