Online PR News – 27-January-2012 – – Freeze drying specialist BPS is pleased to announce a free one-day event exploring some of the key technological advances in freeze drying.

Successful freeze drying relies on an accurate and thorough understanding of the product and its behaviour throughout freeze drying. Many new techniques and technologies are being developed to tighten process control and provide more in-depth analysis of the product before, during and after processing. The goal is to improve efficiency and stability and to facilitate the adoption of freeze drying as it moves into new areas in biotechnology and advanced materials.

This meeting, "Emerging Technologies in Freeze Drying", will showcase presentations from academic and industry perspectives on the new frontiers of freeze drying and potential applications in research, formulation and process development and production.

Topics include:

-The application of freeze drying microscopy in the context of improving formulation and process development
- Frequency modulated spectroscopy, a relatively new analytical technique, promises enhanced quality control and post-process analysis including long-term stability studies
-The emerging process technology of controlled ice nucleation will be introduced and its benefits in ensuring batch uniformity and repeatability
- Comparisons of process development techniques for freeze drying
-Latest advances in containers and closures for freeze drying

The event is suitable for anyone involved in freeze drying in both academia and industry. Time is also included for networking with the presenters, organisers and other delegates.

Please note that the event is free to attend but registration is required. See the event website for schedule and registration information.
