The VisiMix International conference that took place in Boston on the subject of the Influence of Mixing on Your Process was a great success. We are happy to share with our visitors some conference highlights and some of the presentations.
We would like to thank Scientific Update for the services they provided and their support in helping us make the event a success.
Some high points of the conference
• We demonstrated modeling of typical laboratory equipment in the fine chemical industry using VisiMix tools.
• We demonstrated the use of VisiMix software as a significant component of quality by design (QbD) activities.
• We discussed how to integrate VisiMix tools into the development process from a management perspective.
• Validation: We compared VisiMix simulation results using the different VisiMix products, and showed experimental data.
We conducted training based on real-life examples. Participants presented actual mixing problem encountered in their work and received different solutions from various expert users of the software present at the forum. The atmosphere was intimate, informal, and informative (as one participant put it, “almost joyful”), and we even took off a few hours at the end of one of days for a friendly game of tennis.
Here is a picture of our wonderful group, taken on the last day of the conference.
