Abstract

Optimizing the freeze drying process is an excellent way forpharmaceutical companies to increase efficiency, reducecosts and avoid product rejects. However, every newformulation has its own critical temperature and thereforerequires a unique drying process for optimum results.Analytical instruments can bring scientific understandingand a rational approach to the development of the freezedrying cycle. Many companies are choosing to outsourceto specialists such as Biopharma Technology Ltd. (BTL)for advice on excipient choice to streamline the freezedrying cycle.
