2 3 October 2017 & 
Lyon, France
Conferences - Workshops - Exhibition


Henceforth organized every 2 years, the next meetings of freeze-drying will take place the 2 and 3 October 2017 in Lyon.

These days will be devoted to the aspects "process control" and "control of heterogeneity" related to the energy transfers to the product during the 3 main stages of the process.
Indeed, in recent years, the combination of process optimization (reduction of cycle times) and the evolution of loading systems (with and without plates) require a better knowledge of the energy exchanges at the level of the product of All objects loaded at the risk of a loss of control of the homogeneity of the load.
These 2 days will allow, through experiments feedback, to make an inventory of the issues related to heat exchanges and the practices put in place during the qualification stages of lyophilizers (initial and periodic) and then Stages of technology transfer and validation.
A freeze-drying ICG communication that works on "thermal mapping" issues in freeze-drying will complement the various interventions and workshops of these days.

This day will be organized around conferences, feedback, interactive workshops and an exhibition on the themes:

 - Process control
 - Control of heterogeneity 

 - Technology Transfer and Validation
