Engineers Guide to Pharmaceuticals Production


Most of the significant developments of medicines have occurred in the last 70 years and by a process of trial
and error many plants and other substances have been used by man to produce certain pharmalogical effects. This book is a general introduction aimed at all those involved in the engineering stages required for the manufacture of the active ingredient (drugs & primary manufacture) and its dosage forms (secondary manufacture). Chapters also focus on the design of quality control laboratories, process development facilities and pilot plants as these all play a role in ensuring medicines are of an appropriate quality and have their own special problems for pharmaceutical products.
