Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) Freeze Drying

Why Is Freeze Drying Important to API Production?

Freeze drying has become a crucial element in production of many Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) – the part of any drug that maximizes its effects. Lyophilization of an API into dry powder for later reconstitution extends its shelf life and storage capabilities. Sometimes freeze drying is an intermediate R&D step, while at other times it is part of the final API process.

Strict Regulations for Processing API

Regulations for processing API are becoming stricter, making validation and documentation of the equipment and process critical to meeting cGMP guidelines and FDA requirements. Millrock provides the technology and solutions you need to meet cGMP guidelines and can be validated for regulatory needs.
