SP Scientific Announces Fall 2012 Lyophilization Webinars
Product News Aug 17, 2012
SP Scientific has announced its fall 2012 program of free educational webinars delivered by industry experts on topics in Lyophilization and Freeze Drying.
Presented by Yves Mayeresse, Director of Manufacturing at GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals - the 23rd August webinar examines and discusses 'Challenges and Opportunities When Scaling Up Users Lyophilized Pharmaceutical Products'.
The presentation provides an overview of factors influencing the success of scale-up.
The equipment difference, the robustness of the formulation and the required adaptation of the freeze-dried sample will be reviewed in the presentation.
On September 25th - Dr Margit Gieseler of GILYOS GmbH will present a webinar entitled entitled 'Measurement of the Specific Surface Area (SSA) of Lyophilized Products'.
This presentation discusses how the inner cake morphology of freeze-dried products can act as an indicator for the applied process conditions such as freezing rate or shelf temperature / pressure settings during the drying phases.
As pore size of the freeze dried cake is directly correlated to surface area, measurement of the latter provides a quantitative insight into the product`s performance under various conditions.
Presented by Lyophilization expert and consultant - Sid Wolfe - the 11th October webinar discusses 'Determining Conditions for Annealing to Improve the Rate of Primary Drying'.
This presentation discusses a detailed method for making microscopic observations of Ostwald ripening with commercially available equipment to determine the conditions for annealing with the purpose of improving the rate of primary drying.
SP Scientific's program of free educational webinars delivered by industry experts are devoted to lyophilization and freeze-drying topics, and follow a 45-minute format for the presentations with a Q&A session immediately afterwards.
