Development of a Lyophilization Platform Approach to Biopharmaceuticals

The interaction between formulation composition and lyophilization cycle is not well understood. In this presentation the audience will gain an understanding of the interaction between formulation matrix and lyophilization cycle, and will be able to learn how to develop a robust product that can be transferred to Manufacturing, having the confidence that the product will not collapse.

During this webinar participants will:

  • Learn how to use annealing to prevent product collapse even in the presence of salt
  • Understand the interaction between formulation and lyophilization cycle
  • Predict formulations which are risk prone and if future issues can be decreased by changing the lyophilization cycle.
