QbD Philosophy QbD is about connecting the molecule and the patient . Science-based product/process design begins with the API molecular entity and is geared to meet patient needs for pharmacotherapy which is safe, effective, convenient and of consistently high quality. All products are designed and developed to be of high quality ; QbD provides a structured framework for documenting and presenting development rationale, experience and knowledge of the formulation and the process, and to ensure manufacture of products consistently fit for patient use.

Formulation Factors HPMC- and PVA-based coating formulations were evaluated. Opadry II, a PVA-based coating formulation, provided the best stability Tablets were most stable when pH of the coating suspension was adjusted to around 2 for all three layers Three layer-coated tablets were more stable than those coated with two layers (i.e., omission of either inner or outer layer decreased stability)

Elements of QbD: Preliminaries to Studying the Coating Process Placebo cores are subjected to 100% on-line weight check; controlled to 200 mg ± 2%. A round biconvex tablet shape was chosen for durability, ease of coating and improved content uniformity. The process for dissolution of API in the coating vehicle was qualified using a UV fiber-optic probe. A re-circulation loop was designed in the tank to prevent sedimentation of pigments in the coating dispersion. A Raman probe was used to confirm the homogeneity of the coating dispersion. (Mixing design was optimized before undertaking spray characterization.) Brooks air flow controllers are used for monitoring atomization air feed into the spray guns.

Spray Characterization and Design Goal Identify spray system hardware, configuration and operating parameters to produce: Flat, focused spray pattern with uniform droplet size and intensity (narrow RSD) Uniform and stable spray cone Approach Characterize spray with two-camera imaging system (Off-line) Profile camera measures spray cone angle, spray intensity, and spray axis angle Droplet camera measures droplet size distribution (DV50 and DV90), mean droplet speed, and droplet density Effect of various parameters (Off-line) Nozzle types Nozzle operation under controlled air flow rates Solid content in coating suspension Air/liquid ratio

Goal

Identify spray system hardware, configuration and operating parameters to produce:

Flat, focused spray pattern with uniform droplet size and intensity (narrow RSD)

Uniform and stable spray cone

Approach

Characterize spray with two-camera imaging system (Off-line)

Profile camera measures spray cone angle, spray intensity, and spray axis angle

Droplet camera measures droplet size distribution (DV50 and DV90), mean droplet speed, and droplet density

Effect of various parameters (Off-line)

Nozzle types

Nozzle operation under controlled air flow rates

Solid content in coating suspension

Air/liquid ratio

Comparison of Nozzle Types I and II : Selection criteria: flat, focused spray pattern with uniform droplet size and intensity. Cone angle of (A) Type I and (B) Type II nozzles Effect of Nozzle Type A B

Cone angle, droplet size, and droplet density are affected by suspension formulation (API-to-polymer ratio) and flow rate. Spray parameters are customized to assure content uniformity at different API-to-polymer ratios. Droplet size and cone angle decrease with increased air flow rate Too high a ratio of pattern air to atomizing air can create a hollow spray cone which (in this case) would adversely affect content uniformity Air volume is much preferred over air pressure to control the droplet size distribution and pattern of the spray, and is independent of coater scale or “plumbing” Spray Characterization: Summary
