Two Days of Talks in Lyon Centered Around Innovations in OSD Forms

Caleva’s Scott Humphries recently travelled to Lyon in France to take part in two days of informative talks and hands-on workshops for professionals working with OSD forms.


MEDELPHARM Workshops - 19th June

Caleva was proud to support the MEDELPHARM Science Lab team during an afternoon of hands-on workshops for OSD professionals. The event was held at MEDELPHARM’s headquarters in Lyon, with industry experts demonstrating innovative processes and specialist equipment for the development and production of OSD forms. 

Alongside Caleva, MEDELPHARM’s other partners JRS PHARMA , Granutools and Skyepharma were also in attendance to lead insightful workshops on key OSD topics including, exploiting data from DoE execution, dry granulation mimicking principle, tab-in-tab development and wet granulation processes.

Caleva’s international sales manager, Scott Humphries, attended the event to demonstrate Caleva’s range of lab equipment which includes the Mixer Toque Rheometer, the Caleva Multi Lab and the Mini Coater Drier. All three machines are ideal for any lab researching and developing OSD formulations.

APGI Info Day: “Innovative processes & formulations to answer current market trends in OSD forms” – 20th June

The following day saw participants arrive at the Institut Lumière, the birthplace of cinema, for the APGI Info Day. This event involved a full day of innovative talks and presentations focussed around the future of OSD forms, and hosted in partnership with JRS Pharma, MEDELPHARM and Skyepharma.

APGI Info Day

The venue was the perfect backdrop for the day's presentations - linking innovators of the past to those of the present. 

Attendees of the APGI Info Day were able to recognise the potential of the Caleva Mixer Torque Rheometer as Scott Humphries delivered an engaging and informative presentation about this unique lab machine. Despite his presentation being the last one of the day, Scott was able to rouse and engage the audience, with many expressing interest and enthusiasm about how it could help them with their own work.
