Hot melt extrusion

Hot melt extrusion is a fast growing technology platform thas is utilized to solve difficult formulation challenges, primarily in the area of solubilization.


Jet milling

Jet milling is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry and remains the leading technology for particle size reduction and is most commonly used for having consistent and uniform particles during formulation.



At Hovione we have both top-down and bottom-up technologies to produce pharmaceutical nanoparticles for oral delivery.


Spray congealing

Spray congealing, also known as spray cooling, is a solvent free process that transforms a melt into well defined spherical particles.


Spray drying

Spray drying has become one of the most successful particle engineering technologies for improving drug bioavailability through the amorphous solid dispersion platform.


Wet Polishing

This is a proprietary Hovione technology for addressing complex particle reduction challenges.
