Day 2: Friday, 30 July 2021
WORKSHOP: Role and measurement of mechanical properties in lyobeads technology.

The use of Lyobeads is becoming more popular within the Lyophilisation industry, due to their size and structure it is extremely important to understand the strength of the product and sustainability for their use. Utilising the MicroPress Mechanical Property Analyser, tests can be carried out on the Stress and Strain of the final product.
