Event Information

The SMi Group is pleased to invite you to the 5th Annual Lyophilization USA Conference arranged to take place on the 23rd and 24th October 2019, in Boston.


The current list of FDA-approved biopharmaceuticals contains up to 50% of injectables and approximately a third of all parenterals being lyophilized, which suggests it is the optimal way of ensuring stability in products that are unstable in aqueous solution. This instability or degradation can result in suboptimal product performance and even toxicity in worst cases indicating the need for lyophilization despite it’s inherently expensive running costs and time-consuming process.


However, despite being a relatively old process, there is much need for improvements to circumvent the high costs and extended process times with much room for innovation. Next year’s projections for the lyophilization equipment market are approximately $5.7 billion, which is 8% CAGR. This surge is fuelled by the urge to perfect lyophilization processes in areas that characterise the product to better inform formulation and process developments while consequently improving efficiency and reducing capital investment.


Join us this year to explore novel and developing technologies that tackle the most pressing challenges and push innovation in world of lyophilization. Benchmark and network with industry leaders and discuss the most up to date and relevant topics that delve into alternative lyophilization approaches, applied statistical modelling, fresh views on scaling up and tech transfer, pre- and post-product characterization. regulation and beyond.
