Eugene Wexler, Senior Project Manager at Linde, along with Frank DeMarco, Product Manager, Freeze Drying at IMA Life North America, will be presenting a paper at the symposium, titled: Liquid Nitrogen as a Freeze Drying Cooling Source: Technology and Economic Considerations. Wexler and DeMarco will discuss the advantages of Linde's proprietary CUMULUS® technology, which replaces traditional mechanical cooling system and can be seamlessly integrated into existing lyophilizers, allowing pharmaceutical producers to reach lower temperatures than previously possible.
In addition, Dr. Michael Pikal, Professor and Distinguished Chair in Pharmaceutical Technology at University of Connecticut, will be presenting a paper regarding better control of the freezing process at production scale, highlighting Linde's VERISEQ® Nucleation technology, which controls formation of ice crystals using a sterile cryogenic ice fog resulting in enhanced lyophilization (freeze drying) cycles and improved product uniformity.
Both presentations will take place on Thursday, September 15. Linde will also have an exhibit at the symposium where its cryogenic experts will be available to discuss Linde lyophilization and aseptic processing technology in depth.
