Lyophilisation Training Courses
Virtual training course on the science and engineering of freeze drying.
This will be a series of 6 x live, 2.5 hour sessions – including a Q&A following each session – conducted over a three week period from July 6th 2021.
Together with our team of lyophilisation experts, we have developed a series of e-learning video modules explaining the science behind freeze drying, so that you can learn at a pace and time to suit you – you can purchase individual modules or course bundles.
Click the image above to access and purchase your e-learning videos, including our ‘Fundamentals of Freeze Drying’ and ‘Freeze Drying Systems’ course bundles for which you will receive a course attendance certificate upon completion.

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.
Meet our lecturers
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.

Here’s what some of our attendees had to say about one of our courses!
The course really met my expectations. I’ve got a really good fundamental understanding of freeze drying. I particularly enjoyed the good balance between theory and hands on. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone in the freeze drying industry.
PhD, Scientist, AstraZeneca, Ireland
The course was really engaging; It was interesting and I gained general knowledge about freeze drying process. I highly recommend it.
Lab Business Development Manager, Istanbul, Turkey
The course went beyond what I was anticipating, I learned a lot and it’s going to be really beneficial in my future lab career. My favourite session was critical assessment of freeze-dried products.
