Scope of the presentation:
The first part of the talk provides a description of the TVIS measurement system followed by a brief overview of a number of applications in pharmaceutical freeze-drying.
The majority of the talk then focuses on the first time reporting of the use of dual-electrode system and its application in the determination of vial heat transfer coefficient (Kv).
This includes a method for predicting:
(i) Ice region specific temperatures (Ti at the sublimation interface and Tb at the base of the ice mass)
(ii) Ice sublimation rate (dm/dt)
