Ashland webinar:
Vialose trehalose dihydrate – a premier lyoprotectant and stabilizer for valuable biological formulations

who brings stability to your biologics and process?
we do.

EMEA/APAC: Monday, August 28 at 10:00 a.m. CET
NA/LATAM: Tuesday, August 29 at 10:00 a.m. EDT

Vialose trehalose dihydrate is a premier performance sugar that is resistant to acid hydrolysis and enzymatic cleavage. It is used to:

  • protect and shield biologic APIs, recombinant proteins, and monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) from degradation and aggregation, and
  • stabilize and protect valuable components during the lyophilization process.

Understanding the correlation among excipient properties, formulation composition, processing conditions and lyophilized cake properties is important. While therapeutic proteins are formulated with a variety of excipients and undergo process development, storage, and administration at various temperatures, in most cases, freeze-drying is the preferred method to manufacture them in their solid state.

key learning objectives:

you’ll learn about the properties of vialose trehalose dihydrate and investigate its impact on the preparation and stabilization of lyophilized cakes, including its:

  • advanced performance vs. sucrose
  • effective lyophilization
  • excellent physiochemical stability
  • superior lyophilized cake
