March 2020 Issue of The Medicine Maker

From Bluetooth tech to temperature sensors, find out how smart packaging is changing the industry's approach to supply chain management in March’s cover feature. We ask why manufacturers should consider hot-melt extrusion to improve their API formulations; while Stephan Haitz analyzes the trends in small molecule manufacturing, including the role of small and virtual companies – and CDMOs. In addition, find out how repurposed drugs are improving treatment options for patients with cystic fibrosis, who won Pharmapack’s “Best Innovation in Drug Delivery Device award,” and how to combat counterfeits with edible tags. We also sit down with Mike McMullen, President and CEO of Agilent Technologies.
