Welcome to freeze-drying.eu

Welcome to Freeze-Drying.eu, a really unique platform which brings people together who are interested in freeze-drying science!

Freeze-drying.eu is a non-commercial website presented by PD Dr. Henning Gieseler who is both heading the Freeze-Drying Focus Group (FDFG) at the Department of Pharmaceutics, University of Erlangen (Germany) and GILYOS GmbH in Wuerzburg (Germany). The goal of this website is not only to provide an update on our research activities as well as the latest news in the world of freeze-drying, but to establish a network for all those of you who are interested in the various fields of the freeze-drying science. Browse around and check what we have to offer!

Then see a list and description of our research equipment (Equipment) to get an idea about our machines and analytical tools. Or are you interested in the latest list of publications from our group? You may be interested in a database of articles which covers the freeze-drying research work published from 1965-2013 when you are new to the subject. Just visit Publications or Literature.

Finally (and one of the highlights of this website) we created a forum for all of you who appreciate a basis to share ideas and actual problems related to the freeze-drying work or simply find new contacts in this research area. Go to the page Forum and register today!
