1st HOF technical forum
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary HOF Sonderanlagenbau held its 1st technical forum. Notable experts from fields of research and industries, as well as more than 100 attendees came to our site in Lohra on May 9th in order to exchange experiences. Therefore, this little town near Marburg became a central point for this highly specialized sector on this specific day.
During the symposium, renowned specialists reported on latest research subjects and innovative applications during pharmaceutical production:
- Dipl.-Ing. Gerhard Schilder (HOF Business Development Manager) gave a talk on ‘State of the art’ in freeze-drying technology and automated charging systems,
- Dr. Jörg Lümkemann (F. Hoffmann-La Roch Ltd.) reported on a case study concerning ‚Detection of silicone oil leakages in freeze-dryers using mass spectrometry’ and
- Prof. Dr. Gerhard Winter (Department of Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Technology and Biopharmaceutics, LMU Munich) talked about ‘Aggressive freeze-drying of pharmaceutically relevant proteins’.
On the basis of poster presentations, all participants had a chance to learn more about all the different departments of HOF during an extended lunch break. Here, qualified personnel could give answers to any questions asked.
The afternoon was dedicated to visiting the manufacturing sites in Lohra and Mornshausen. Attendees were able to get closer insights on how projects are realized at HOF.
To conclude the event, an exchange of technical expertise and professional competence gave everyone the opportunity to earn first-hand practical knowledge.
