Lyophilisation 2014

Date: 07-Jul-14 to 08-Jul-14
Location: Marriott Hotel, Regents Park / London / United Kingdom
Category: Chemicals Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals Technology Science Conferences & Trade Fairs

The global lyophilisation for pharmaceuticals products and services market will reach $3.09bn in 2014 with revenues showing strong growth to 2024. With increasing numbers of proteins being discovered, the importance of lyophilisation is coming to the fore, for example, as a means of extending the shelf life of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products.

SMi invites you to attend the 2nd annual Lyophilisation conference on 7-8 July 2014, London. This event will provide an update on methodologies for lyophilisation and examine how to mitigate risks in production. Join our Lyophilisation forum and gain insight into current successes and challenges faced by pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals during their freeze drying life cycle.
