Trial-and-error is a common approach to resolving quality issues during the development and manufacture of liquid dispersions in many industries.

Repeated and sporadic rounds of firefighting cause unpredictable delays and unnecessary expenditure, compromising the development, approval, production and robustness of a wide range of products.


Apply fundamental concepts of colloid science

Improve quality of your liquid dispersions

Significantly reduce human resource, time and cost

Increase your bottom line

This free mini course will demonstrate to you that the judicious use of the fundamental concepts of colloid science can be applied to increase the quality of liquid dispersions and significantly reduce human resource, time and cost.


I don't have time to do this!

"Colloid science is too complicated and theoretical."

"We've tried it before - it didn't help."

How is this course different?


This course has been developed based on 24 years of experience of applying colloid science in the pharmaceutical industry.

It expertly lays down a foundation of essential colloid science in a digestible manner.

It will help you develop and maintain robust industrial products.

How is this course short?


This course has been crafted to teach just the essentials to create a strategy for reducing firefighting and cost-of-poor-quality.

It will take you an hour or so to complete.

How is this course straightforward?


The fundamental aspects of colloid science are taught concisely with clarity. Emphasis is on the phenomena and how they can affect the quality of the product.

There's no mathematics.

Other courses provide too much content and detail, creating the impression that colloid science is too complicated to be of realistic value.

How is this course practical?


This course uses a real-world case study to meet a business need with high quality and efficiency.

The methods used and the experimental data reflect practical reality.

Other courses present hypothetical scenarios that seldom occur with industrial products.

Why is this course for me?

John F. Miller, PhD

I founded ENLIGHTEN SCIENTIFIC after 24-years in the pharmaceutical industry. I spent most of my time on late phase formulation and device development of metered-dose inhalers (MDIs). This is one of the most — if not the most — complex delivery platforms. In the early 2000s, I led the development and approval of one of the most successful North American MDI products — ADVAIR® HFA Inhalation Aerosol. In the mid-2010s, I transitioned to the manufacturing organization. MDIs require very careful supply change control and it was common for arising issues to be dealt with in a trial-and-error way. In contrast, I used my colloid science expertise to identify and implement much more robust solutions with significantly less resource. The experiences and expertise gained working with MDIs proved valuable for helping resolve issues with other dosage forms. I became a technical expert for many international product development and manufacturing teams.

Prior to starting my career in the pharmaceutical industry, I obtained my PhD in colloid science at the University of Bristol, widely recognized as one of the premier world-class centers of excellence for colloid and interface science. For my research, I invented Phase Analysis Light Scattering (PALS) which is now the de facto method for determining the zeta potential of dilute liquid dispersions. Major manufacturers of PALS instruments include Malvern Panalytical, Brookhaven Instruments, and Wyatt Technologies.
