Training Courses for lyophilisation technologies from Biopharma Group
20 Feb 2019
Freeze-drying is a crucial method employed in both the pharmaceutical and biotech industries whose importance is often not fully appreciated. Leading industry experts in the technique, Biopharma, offer multiple options to ensure that all freeze-drying training requirements can be met.
Freeze drying, or lyophilisation as it is more correctly known, is widely used in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. It is an excellent method for creating a consistent, stable, storable product, which maintains the long-term viability of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API). Although widely used, and well known through its application in the food industry, lyophilisation is, in fact, a complicated process. The reactions of different products to lyophilisation can vary greatly and in pharma this means that each API may need a different inactive substance vehicle blend in order to produce the most effective results.
Although lyophilisation is widely used, experts in the field are rare. This means that proper training in both the science and equipment usage is uncommon. This is unfortunate as the purchase of lyophilisation equipment represents a significant investment for any laboratory and, bearing in mind how heavily regulated the pharma and biotech industries are, it is important to produce the best product results in the most effective time and manner. This means that analysis of results is also important, in order to define the optimum formulation and freeze-drying cycle for a product of formulation. The analysis is crucial to define the critical temperatures and pressures that create the finest, most reliable and efficient process.
Having well trained and informed personnel to carry out your lyophilisation processing can only help ensure the best results for your research or production process. It is pleasing to see then that Biopharma technology, industry leaders in the field of freeze-drying are offering a full range of different training options for those new to the field or in need of bringing up to date with the science and the instrumentation. With over 20 years of experience in the industry, Biopharma is ideally placed to be running training programmes for science, technology and engineering teams.
Biopharma offers regularly scheduled courses each year as well as on-site customised training and a comprehensive customised Webinar option that is perfect for large companies spread over multiple locations.
