1 CENTER OF KNOWLEDGE AND TECHNOLOGIES TRANSFER
Elena Guseva1 Natalia Menshutina1, Hans Leuenberger2 1D.I. Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia 2University of Basel, Switzerland

2 In the beginning… Russian-Swiss science and education center for transfer of biopharmaceutical technologies has been established on the basis of MUCTR as the result of team-work between the Institute of Pharmaceutical Technology, University of Basel and MUCTR. The Russian-Swiss science and education center has the official status of the structural unit of MUCTR. The Center is a new basis to enhance the Russian-Swiss relationship in education, science and technology transfer for mutual benefit. The center was founded under support of: Russian Ministry of Education and Science State Secretariat for Education and Research SER Swiss Embassy in Moscow

3 MAIN AIMS AND TASKS co-ordination of students education on special master courses using the Centre’s facilities, equipment and materials in accordance with European standards and technical requirements; organisation of specialised laboratories within the university for the purpose of conducting scientific studies profile; advanced training of specialists from appropriately profiled enterprises; publication of relevant successes and popularization of intellectual achievements of Russian and Swiss research organization to improve commercial appeal to the international market.

12 ENCAPSULATION Protein encapsulation to biodegradable microspheres using freeze drying technologies Encapsulation by coating in fluidized layer under super critical conditions

13 Atmospheric freeze-drying with active hydrodynamics
… is alternative process to classical vacuum freeze-drying Mannitol Spraying Freezing Sublimation of fluidized bed particles Dextran

14 The main stages and description of the process
The process has two stages: the initial freezing at spraying of the solution the sublimation of frozen particles at their fluidization The initial freezing is done in a freezing cabinet, which is equipped with an ultrasonic nozzle that is capable of producing particles of 150 mm. The freezing temperature inside the cabinet was held at –60C. The 15% aqueous solution of mannitol is sprayed top-down against a cold air stream. At sublimation drying stage of the process the frozen particles are held by fluidization, and this was performed in the modified Glatt apparatus. The process was carried out at a drying temperature of about -20ºC. The average time of the process was about 3 hours.

15 The advantages of the atmospheric freeze drying with active hydrodynamics
intensive heat and mass transfer, high moisture removal rate due to active hydrodynamic regime reduced time of the process energy effectiveness in comparison with classical freeze drying under vacuum better control of the residual moisture content and temperature, important for pharmaceutical products product size and shape design for manufacturing of solid dosage forms and production of injection and inhalation dosage form possibility of continuous operation

16 The properties of the pharmaceutical products

20 Atmospheric Spray Freeze Drying as an Alternative
Advantages: The result is a highly porous free flowing powder (pellets) with instant solubility properties. The high porosity of the pellets (up to 85%) and the nanostructured internal surface is ideal for the formulation of novel drug delivery systems for the lung.

21 Atmospheric Spray Freeze Drying as an Alternative
Advantages: Process is faster due to the better heat transfer and has a lower variability. It is possible to combine the advantages of Nano- and Microtechnology.

22 Atmospheric Spray Freeze Drying as an Alternative
Advantages: ideal for the preparation of nanocomposite pellets for low water soluble drugs to enhance bioavailability of the drug. ideal for the formulation of temperature and structure sensitive drugs such as Biologicals i.e. Pharmaproteins such as Interferons, Insulin.

25 Modeling of hydrodynamics, heat-and mass-transfer in apparatus
The equations of mass, concentration preservation are: The equations of impulse preservation are: The equations of energy preservation are: Height, m Velocity, m/s Additional correlations are:

26 The drying kinetics The drying rate: J = b∙X
The driving force of process: The drying rate: J = b∙X The effective mass transfer coefficient: b = Nu∙D/l 1 > 2        The main influencing factor on the value of the driving force of atmospheric freeze drying is the flow of injected heat into the product, and outflow of water at sublimation.

27 The mathematical model solution
The solution of equations system allowed to investigate the hydrodynamic and temperature regimes (gas and particle velocities, temperature, void volume etc.), heat and mass transfer in any point of the apparatus, as well as to determine the drying rate. Moreover, on the basis of the mathematical model it is possible to find parameters for stable operation of a dryer, for example the height of a fountain.
