Lyophilized Drug Product Development

Overview:  In an effort to improve stability and shelf life of a drug, the active ingredients in many therapeutics are typically mixed with a number of other inactive chemicals.

The end result of this process, called formulation, is commonly a liquid solution or suspension. However, for certain drugs, which are prone to degradation or aggregation, alternative processes, like freeze-drying, are effective to improve stability.

Freeze-drying, also called lyophilization, is a technique used to generate dry drug products with improved stability and acceptable shelf life.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • A general understanding of the use and advantages of the lyophilization process
  • The lyophilization process, abilities and limitations
  • The process by which a freeze-dried pharmaceutical product is developed

Who should attend:

  • Small Molecule Drug Product Development
  • Biologics Drug Product Development
  • Chemical Biology
  • Biotech startups
