Summer 2014 Program of Lyophilization Webinars

SP Scientific has announced its Summer 2014 program of LyoLearn webinars.

LyoLearn WebinarsStone Ridge NY, USA — The LyoLearn program of free educational webinars, delivered by industry experts, are devoted to lyophilization, freeze-drying and related topics.

prAttendees to the live sessions are encouraged to ask questions of the presenter and get their answers in real time.

On 25 June 2014, Peter St??ertzel* of GILYOS GmbH will present ‘Principles of Formulation Design‘, an informative webinar that provides an introduction to freeze drying of L-arginine-based formulation systems.

It includes a discussion of physicochemical and thermal properties of formulations containing different L-arginine-based excipient combinations.

The influence of the type of L-arginine counter ion will be highlighted as well as drying performance and final product characteristics to assess the relevant key considerations if using L-arginine-based protein formulations.

Common Misconceptions in Freeze-Drying (II) is a webinar presentation, due to air on 26th July 2014, that addresses some of the most common misconceptions in freeze-drying (lyophilization) relating to formulations, process cycles, equipment and scale-up.

The presentation follows on from Common Misconceptions in Freeze-Drying (I) which discussed basics of the product, process and equipment.

In this presentation, Kevin Ward of BioPharma Technology Ltd. will challenge some of the myths and misunderstandings relating to the measurement of shelf and product temperatures, the use of some PAT tools and the scalability of parameters from the lab to full-scale manufacturing.

LyoLearn webinars follow a 45-minute format for the presentations with a Q&A session immediately afterwards.
