Join SMi Group's second annual Lyophilisation forum taking place on 7-8 July, London, and gain insight into current successes and challenges that leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology organisations are facing during their freeze drying life cycles | Sponsored by Antech Solutions and SP Scientific.

2nd Annual Lyophilisation 2014

Freeze Drying Equipment Market... expected to reach USD 30.98 billion by 2019.- Transparency Market Research, 2014.

Freeze Drying Equipment Market was worth USD 15.9 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach USD 30.98 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 10.5% from 2013 to 2019. With increasing numbers of proteins being discovered, the importance of lyophilisation is coming to the fore, for example, as a means of extending the shelf life of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products.
