The capabilities of a freeze dryer can change with differences in design. This is particularly important when users are transferring cycles from lab-scale to commercial-scale freeze dryers. Each freeze dryer has its own limitations and it is important to understand these limitations to avoid the risk of product failure when scaling-up the production.
Recently, Dr. Jayasree M. Srinivasan from Baxter BioPharma Solutions presented a webinar discussing how to measure and compare equipment capabilities of lab-scale and productionscale freeze dryers in order to define optimal design space parameters. This tech note summarizes the webinar and includes a selection of questions from the Q&A session.
