Genzyme Ireland will be speaking at this year's Lyophilisation conference to provide insights into the role and impact of physical chemistry during freeze-drying processes of biopharmaceuticals.

Highlights from the presentation entitled, Physical Chemistry Considerations for Lyophilisation of Biopharmaceuticals, will include:

  • The role and impact of physical chemistry on the lyophilisation process, stability and structure of biopharmaceuticals
  • The impact of lyophilisation process parameters on excipient state - crystalline versus amorphous and the methods of stabilisation by amorphous excipients
  • Stresses experienced by proteins during the lyophilisation process
  • Correlating moisture and the glass transition temperature during secondary drying to assess product stability

Lyophilisation 2014 will provide a mix of case study led presentations, panel debates and keynote addresses that have been tailored to an audience of professionals involved in PAT implementation, mathematical modelling, design and scale-up, to optimising and validating freeze drying life cycles.
