CFD methods and lyophilization: Advancing manufacturing processes to match growing demands
Thursday, April 27, 2017

As an effect of globalization, the patent life of newly discovered drugs has decreased considerably, forcing manufacturers to minimize drug development time as well as maximize throughput. To achieve this, existing manufacturing processes need to be upgraded, and new approaches and methodologies developed. Simulation applying CFD and optimization is an ideal tool to investigate such concepts early in the design phase, tying it into the Product Life Cycle Management Process – and thus avoiding costly troubleshooting exercises later.

In this webcast, you will learn more on how the integration of CFD and design exploration methods for lyophilization can shorten product-process development cycles, optimize existing processes, reduce energy requirements and lead to the efficient design of new products.

This webcast covers setting up a CFD model frequently used in the lyophilization community, using advanced engineering simulation software. Aspects like geometry creation, problem setup and model selection will be addressed.
