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.

Training Partners

Biopharma Group has recently collaborated with The National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) to provide our Product, Process & Systems course in Ireland. NIBRT is a world-class institute that provides training and research solutions for the bioprocessing industry. Their mission is to support the bioprocessing industry by providing a unique learning experience for trainees in an environment that replicates the most modern industrial bioprocessing facility, demonstrated successfully through their world class facility in Dublin, Ireland.

Lyophilisation is a complex science and as a result, personnel with extensive freeze drying experience are very rare in the industry. Combining the expertise of Biopharma Group and NIBRT, this course is the ideal way to ensure your training needs are met.
