Below is a summary of their presentation:

– Quality-by-Design strategies for drying processes
– Typical sources of variation for lyophilization and spray drying processes
– Timing for initiating QbD for drying processes
– Applying PAT in drying process QbD
– Conditions/Environment when spray drying

Featured Highlights – June 2018:

– Discuss the use of old and new methods in terms of the optimisation of freeze drying cycles
– Learn about case studies which delve into the processes through which cycles can be refi ned to the utmost efficiency
– Hear about a new PAT for freeze drying cycle development through vial impedance spectroscopy
– Discover ways in which water activity measurement and mathematical modelling can be used to evaluate the stability of freeze dried vaccines
– Evaluate quality-by-design strategies, applied to spray drying, versus lyophilisation

PLUS: Don’t forget to check out the two-post conference interactive workshops taking place on 12th June.

For those looking to attend there is currently a massive saving of £400, ending March 29th
