Jeff Schwegman
CEO, Principal Consultant,
Jeff Schwegman, Ph.D. is currently the founder and chief executive officer of AB BioTechnologies (www.ab-biotech.com) where he develops formulations, lyophilization cycles, determines residual moisture by Karl Fischer, and provides thermal characterization studies including freeze-dry microscopy and DSC. Additionally, Dr. Schwegman specializes in speaking and consulting in parenteral pre-formulation, formulation, analytical, and lyophilization of both small molecules and large biomolecules. He also holds patents and develops new technologies within the lyophilization field. Dr. Schwegman received his BS in Biochemistry from Indiana University in 1992 and began working at Cook Imaging in Bloomington Indiana, where he gained experience in analytical, formulation and process development. In 1999 he began graduate study in the Department of Industrial and Physical Pharmacy at Purdue University under the direction of Dr. Steve Nail, where his focus of research involved studying changes in the physical structure of biological molecules during lyophilization.

Dr. Schwegman received his PhD from Purdue University in 2003, and returned to Bloomington where he worked at Baxter Pharmaceutical Solutions as a Research Scientist in the Pharmaceutical Development group. In November 2005, he left Baxter and formed BioConvergence LLC with 3 other founders which specialized in developing new formulations and manufacturing processes for parenteral products. In February 2008, he left BioConvergence, which has become a successful company, to form AB BioTechnologies. He is currently the course Director for a 3-day course called Lyophilization Technology which he teaches through the Center for Professional Innovation and Education. He routinely lectures around the world on formulation, stabilization and process development of lyophilized products.

Upcoming Training
Live Sessions Not Found.
Recorded Training
This webinar will cover formulation and process development strategies for stabilizing biologically based pharmaceutical and diagnostic products including proteins, cells, and viruses (live, modified live, attenuated). Understanding the degradation mechanisms and improving stability of these molecules through formulation and processing techniques will be discussed in great detail in addition to covering some of the analytical techniques employed to verify the results.
Recorded Session Access recorded sessions for multiple participants unlimited viewing for 6 months.

This webinar will begin with a discussion of the physical properties of materials that are commonly used to formulate freeze-dried products, and the impact that these materials can have on how products freeze-dry (in regards to the physical and chemical integrity). Understanding if a crystalline, amorphous, mixed, and or metastable system is present in our products, is critical in developing a sound, stable formulation that can easily be freeze-dried.

This seminar will cover the freezing, annealing, primary drying and secondary drying steps of a lyophilization process. As each of these steps can affect both the chemical and physical integrity of freeze-dried products, it is important to thoroughly understand the scientific principles behind each step, and how to apply them when developing an optimized lyophilization cycle. Additionally, understanding these principles and how then affect the product allows the development scientist to better troubleshoot failed products and or cycles.

This webinar will cover the process of transferring and or scaling-up a lyophilization process to a larger or different freeze-dryer. By using a methodical approach and understanding the thermal properties of a product, the scale-up or transfer process can be simplified and result in consistent product being produced in any freeze-dryer.

This webinar will cover various container closure systems used for freeze-dried products including vials and stoppers, bulk drying trays, and pre-filled syringes. Various aspects of the types of materials used, the specialized coatings available, and the configuration of the different systems will be discussed in relation to the impact on the products and the lyophilization process.
