This webinar will start off with a discussion of the thermal properties of a formulated product (the first step in any well designed and understood process and formulation). Next, the discussion will turn towards understanding the theory behind each step, and how to apply these principles based on the thermal properties of each formulation. By attending this training, the participant will be able to understand and carefully design each step of a lyophilization process, and be assured that an optimized cycle has been developed that will produce product with consistently good, long term physical and chemical integrity.

Learning Objectives:

- Understanding the thermal properties of a formulated product.
- Understanding how different freezing protocols affect the physical stability of sensitive molecules.
- Understanding when and why an annealing step is needed.
- Understanding and applying the principles to get optimized primary and secondary drying protocols.
Areas Covered in the Seminar:

- Thermal properties of formulated products.
- Theory and practice of freezing protocols.
- Theory and practice of annealing protocols.
- Theory and practice of primary drying protocols.
- Theory and practice of secondary drying protocols.
- Tying the different steps together into a complete lyophilization process.
