Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Manufacturers

Overview Industry Overview:

Pharmaceutical manufacturing calls for precision and consistent quality through milling, granulation, extrusion, coating, tablet pressing, and other steps. The process must meet both government approval and Good Manufacturing Practice. For nutraceutical manufacturing, key steps include formulation, flavoring and encapsulation as functional foods and dietary supplements continue to build market share.

Frequent analysis lets manufacturers check nutraceutical products for authenticity; oversight includes screening for herbicides and pesticides and heavy metal. Products may use a single ingredient or a complex formula. Pharmaceutical manufacturing requires deep understanding of excipients, binders, fillers, homogenizers and more. It’s both highly complex and highly competitive.

App Common Applications:

  • Binders, fillers, excipients, colorants
  • New chemical entities (NCEs)
  • Changing technology and modernizing manufacturing
  • Milling, granulation, coating, tablet pressing etc.
  • Government policies and compliance
  • Cofactors, coenzymes, prosthetic groups etc.
  • Chemical synthesis
  • Biotechnology
  • Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and other documents
