Development of experiments in strip film drug delivery and manufacture

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Experiments were developed for the use in an introduction to engineering course that focuses on presenting principles of dissolvable strip drug delivery technology, while also reinforcing general engineering concepts. These experiments were designed to be used as individual laboratory exercises or as part of a semester-long project for more in-depth learning. Several laboratory experiments focus on formulation and properties (related to function and performance) of strip films used in pharmaceutical applications. The experiments introduce students to manufacture of strip films, using a simple bench-scale casting device to create solid polymeric thin films from a liquid feed solution. Students explore how results can be modelled and used in scale-up.
