Fundamentals of Freeze Drying

Release Date: January 31, 2011

SP Scientific, a world leader in freeze drying technology, has announced a new 4-part series of LyoLearn webinars during February 2011 designed to help participants better understand the basic theory and fundamentals of freeze drying.

Chaired by Dr Jeff Schwegmann, Director of AB Biotechnologies - the scope of the first webinar will be to provide an introduction to freeze drying theory and the components of freeze drying, temperature and vacuum monitoring systems. The second webinar will focus on the physical properties of different types of materials (eutectic melting, glass transition, collapse temperatures, etc.) and discuss applications of thermal characterisation techniques for solutions and solids.

The third webinar in the series will look at the latest freezing, annealing, primary and secondary drying techniques and the theory behind them.  Reflecting the importance of freeze drying in the production environment, the fourth webinar will discuss strategies for optimizing freeze drying scale-up, cycle transfer and maximising your throughput capability.

SP Scientific's program of free educational webinars delivered by industry experts are devoted to freeze-drying topics, and follow a 30-minute format for the presentations with a Q&A session immediately afterwards.  To register for the 4 session webinar 'Basic Theory of Freeze Drying' please visit the SP Scientific website or contact the company on +1-845-255-5000 (+44-1473-240000 in Europe).
