The presentation will compare milling and micronization techniques, and discuss the importance of comprehensive analytical capabilities in characterizing and optimizing a formulation for rapid product development.

Mr. Bathelier joined Catalent in November 2014, following its acquisition of Micron Technologies, and now serves as Catalent Micron Technologies’ Business Development Manager, specializing in particle size engineering in Europe and Japan. Previously, Mr. Bathelier worked in business and marketing roles for Air Products and Chemicals Inc. He graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie et de Physique de Bordeaux.

Catalent will also be exhibiting at CPhI Japan where it will showcase a broad range of its drug delivery technologies and development solutions designed to increase bioavailability and drug efficacy. The company will also showcase its Asia clinical supply network solutions that can help customers overcome clinical trial challenges in the region and reduce timelines.
