Lyophilization Contract Manufacturing Services: What To Know


Lyophilization is being increasingly used in the development of drugs, including parenteral and biologics. The process is used in the pharmaceutical industry to make lyophilized injections, eye drops, other sensitive drugs, and parenteral dosage forms that cannot be manufactured through traditional methods. In the biopharmaceutical industry, lyophilization is used to preserve proteins and peptides for long-term storage, making these customarily unstable drug products more secure and viable for widespread distribution.

However, developing the specific cycle for a lyophilized drug product is a meticulous process. Each product requires unique temperature and pressure parameters and varying durations for each stage in the process. Lyophilization also requires access to the necessary equipment for the freeze drying process, and products that require an extra level of care may call for aseptic manufacturing environments. The right lyophilization partner will have the necessary knowledge and expertise to develop a lyophilization cycle suitable for a particular drug, and is essential to optimize the performance and stability of the end product. Explore the best ways to optimize your lyophilization cycle and the benefits of partnering with an experienced pharmaceutical contract manufacturing services provider.
