Spray drying and jet milling are commercially viable engineering processes for the development of respirable drug products. This case study explores the material and performance properties of mannitol, spray-dried and jet-milled, for respiratory delivery. The head to head comparison reveals opportunities and risks for designing a product based on each approach. Key learning objectives include: (1) understanding the pros and cons of spray drying vs. jet milling; (2) learning how to conduct a risk assessment to inform engineering technology selection; and (3) exploring how particle morphology influences aerodynamic performance.
