It was a great training course with rigorous emphasis on fundamentals and theory of freeze drying.


“Great presentation and productive discussion.”


All the presentations were clearly communicated; I enjoyed all the lecture sessions. It was a good mix of cycle development, product quality assessment & engineering.


Speakers did a phenomenal job of explaining the course material. Both speakers were very approachable and extremely helpful answering questions.
