This powerpoint presentation follows a talk given by a Catalent expert at the Management Forum, in London, July 1, 2010. It covers considerations for filling DPIs by quality of design and mechanisms for dosing inhalation powders. Other topics include: product development & DPI filling (project scope); definition of goals (product profile), critical quality attributes, and design space. Conclusion: Robust options are available for micro-dosing inhalation powders with some important caveats.
