Join the Buffalo Section for a virtual presentation on freeze drying technology. IMA is a global leader in the design and manufacturing of automatic machinery used in the processing and packaging of pharmaceuticals products. Thanks to its high technological profile and the ability to offer tailor-made solutions, IMA can satisfy the most sophisticated requests of the different reference markets. Although one of the oldest techniques in the pharmaceutical industry for the preservation of unstable materials, there has been an increasing demand for lyophilized products and equipment, in particular in the last decade. In fact today, about half of all sterile injectables are lyophilized. The freeze-drying process of today demands increased process control, with reduced processing time augmented with upgrades in equipment to remain compliant with a changing regulatory landscape. Processing freeze dried materials in the pharmaceutical industry requires aseptic processing as well as pressure vessels for sterilization. This presentation will introduce what freeze drying (lyophilization) is, why it is used and the engineering behind the process as well as the major equipment used in the process. PDH available. Presented by speaker Dave Debo, PE, Engineering Manager, IMA Life North America. Learn more and register today!
