Freeze Dryer Characterization and Considerations for Cycle Transfer
May 16 – 18, 2017. Kingston, NY
Course Instructors: Dr. Serguei Tchessalov and Dr. Anthony Gudinas.
This course will guide students through the processes that provide the most efficient cycle transfer and scale-up from one freeze dryer to another. Included will be detailed information on how to properly characterize your freeze dryers and to understand the development and use of Kv and Pmin among other parameters. Students will receive a mathematical model that will be presented in detail that has been developed to successfully assist the Pfizer staff in cycle scale-up and transfer via the use of freeze drying characterization and the us of the model. A follow-up webinar will be schedule so that students can discuss any issues, questions or concerns applying their new knowledge to their own product(s)
