This new edition of Freeze Drying/ Lyophilization of Pharmaceutical and Biological Products addresses these changes with updated and new chapters on emerging developments in lyophilization technology, research, and industry procedures. Providing both a scientific and industrial perspective, this comprehensive text is a valuable resource for all those who use freeze drying technology.
