Conference Overview

Although lyophilization is an old process, it remains to be complex. Today we can see increased trend in aseptic freeze-dried products, including biologics, APIs, nanomaterials and new devices. It makes the lyophilization cycle more complicated. Lyophilization becomes systematic and scientific process.

Pharmaceutical Lyophilization Summit 2022 is a knowledge sharing to showcase best practices in technical and regulatory updates, manufacturing and process development, freeze-dried formulation, testing, monitoring and new products development.

The featured talks on:

  • We need bigger crystals quo vadis controlled nucleation?
  • GMP-ready continuous freeze-drying of pharmaceuticals.
  • Freeze drying process design using a Design Space approach.
  • The influence of formulation in freeze drying biologics
  • Anatomy of the Lyophilization Process: Considerations for a Successful Tech Transfer.
  • Alternative Freeze Drying Technologies and Options for Process Intensification
  • Where’s the true sublimation end point in primary drying?
  • Impact of Elastomeric Closures on Freeze-dried Cakes.
  • How different vial concepts can help to avoid breakage due to freezing.
  • 4040/40 Elastomer Formulation Innovation for Lyo Application.
