Optimizing Your Hot Melt Extrusion Process: Polymer Screening, Formulation, and Process Development


In this webinar, we focus on providing you with insights on how you can optimize your hot melt extrusion process with novel screening tools as well as guidance on how to identify suitable process parameters. This can represent a decisive strategic advantage in the early development stages.

This webinar is part 2 of our series, "Shaping the Future of Solid Dose Manufacturing with Hot Melt Extrusion" in cooperation with Thermo Fisher Scientific and MeltPrep.

Daniel Treffer, Ph.D.


Founder and CEO

Daniel Treffer is the founder of MeltPrep which develops dedicated equipment for ASD and implant formulation development work of thermoplastic formulations. The proprietary and patented VCM technology is based on his Ph.D. findings. Professor Khinast supervised his work at the RCPE in Graz, Austria, from 2011 to 2016. Daniel faced several challenges in hot melt extrusion development projects and recognized the need for novel tools for faster and lower material usage for formulation developments. His invention, vacuum compression molding (VCM), can prepare extrusion-like samples with a few mg of material.
