Among others, he is specialized in the development of customized Freeze-Drying processes (particularly upscaling with PAT) and in the qualification (FAT, SAT, IQ, OQ, PQ) of pharmaceutical freeze dryers.
With the beginning of industrial freeze drying in the late 40ies, a dynamic control procedure has been introduced. Based on steady scientific efforts, the performance of this procedure has been continuously improved. Though, this method has now become a robust detection procedure for the sublimation pressure at the ice front, there is still optimization potential remaining. The presentation will provide an historical overview and will discuss pro & cons of this measurement procedure. Finally an outlook will be provided.View Details
