Hooke College of Applied Sciences – Freeze Drying Training Course

April 8, 2019 - April 10, 2019

In Hooke College of Applied Sciences’ 2 1/2 day freeze drying short course, you’ll work in small groups to examine formulations containing pharmaceutical excipients.

Each group builds data sets for their formulation using DSC, freeze dry microscopy and micro freeze dryers. You’ll have ample time to discuss your specific formulation challenges with experts in lyophilization R & D, and you’ll gain hands-on experience with equipment from Millrock, Linkam, Mettler, and AMETEK Brookfield (formerly Arizona Instrument) runs April 08, 2019 to April 10, 2019. This class is immediately followed by the International Society of Lyophilization – Freeze Drying, Inc. (ISL-FD) conference that runs April 11, 2019 in Chicago at the Midwest Conference Center, which is about 20 miles east of Hooke College of Applied Sciences.

AMETEK Brookfield Instruments Utilized in the Course:

  • Computrac® Vapor Pro® XL  – Chemical Free Karl Fischer Alternative
    • The Vapor Pro® XL is the latest in moisture specific analysis technology from Computrac®. It is ideal for nearly any application in which Karl Fischer is used and features a new touchscreen interface and upgraded heater. It is also is compatible with vials from 2R to 30R, making it easy to test hygroscopic samples without exposing them to ambient humidity, and is equipped with stepped temperature testing capabilities for enhanced method development.
