Trained personnel for lyophilisation helps ensure the best results for your projects, say Biopharma Group
Personnel with extensive freeze drying experience are very rare in the industry. Many companies have been using lyophilisation technologies for decades without questioning inherited formulations or cycles.
It is not uncommon to find that an organisation has used one formulation for several cycles, which is not the ideal practice.
“There is no such thing as a ‘one cycle fits all’ when it comes to lyophilisation,” said the Biopharma Group, who have many years specific experience in the speclialsm.
They explain that product reactions to lyophilisation can vary greatly and each API may need a different excipient blend to produce the best result.
One of the reoccurring issues encountered within the industry is the movement of labour. Often, those with extensive knowledge surrounding the subject move on to other companies, taking this knowledge with them.
As lyophilisation is such a specialised area, there are few experts with significant working knowledge of its complexities.
Biopharma runs lyophilisation technology-specific training programmes for engineering groups and science and technology teams.
Then company offers regularly scheduled courses each year and offer customised courses.
On-site customised training. This is an opportunity for a company looking for instruction in the field of lyophilisation to create a programme specific to their individual operation and confidentiality discuss details of products.
This particular option is most suitable for a company that has a larger number of people in one particular location.
Customised Webinar. This is a better solution for organisations with locations around the world. The webinar is a live, interactive, tailored training programme that reaches many locations simultaneously.
This customised webinar can cover the fundamentals and specific, complex issues.
Scheduled Courses. These are offered throughout the year in the UK, Europe and the USA. This is the most accessible choice as it is open to anyone to attend.
The programme is designed to provide delegates with in-depth, up-to-date and practical information appropriate for any kind of lyophilisation. It intended to be a general education which can be applied to specific situations. They are useful for bringing newcomers up to speed.
