Learn from the Experts

We present the topics from practice and experience – not just theory & textbooks. Our tutors are currently active in the field, with many years practical experience. They have substantial knowledge of  the challenges of operating an efficient and robust freeze drying process and the experience to trouble shoot your processing problems. The courses are regularly updated in response to feedback from course attendees, changes in cGMP and advances in processing technology.  Our objective is to embed an understanding of freeze drying theory in our training courses and ground the course in real world practice.
