The foundation of AB BioTechnologies is industry-recognized subject matter expertise in lyophilization and formulation. Our services are designed to bring that expertise to your project and to your staff. Our offerings are flexible, which allows us to create a custom plan together. Formulations and optimized lyophilization cycles are developed at the bench to your specifications, then scaled-up to manufacturing levels. Thermal characterization and analytical development are available as stand-alone projects or integrated into larger projects.

Lyophilization Cycle Development

Lyophilization brings ease of transport, storage, and reliable stability to liquid formulations. The extra step after filling has many benefits, but it is not without additional cost. If a cycle is not optimized, the length of the cycle will drive up its cost. Product quality can be compromised by a cycle that is too aggressive …

Many preservatives used in traditional liquid formulations do an excellent job on the shelf, but not in the freeze-dryer. These preservatives can cause issues such as longer drying time and product collapse, which wastes valuable API and …
