SP Scientific announces the LyoCapsule™ Freeze Dryer - an exciting new lyophilization instrument that delivers results comparable to larger R&D freeze dryers enabling a Quality by Design (QbD) approach to cycle development even when materials are highly expensive or limited in quantity. This addition aligns with SP’s mission to provide ‘line of sight’ scale-up equipment and technology from R&D through to commercial freeze drying.

The LyoCapsule freeze dryer's small chamber incorporates a unique cylindrical inner chamber, or ‘capsule,’ to hold the vials and utilizes wall temperature control to ensure that edge vials dry under the same process conditions as center vial.  Employing this technology, this mini freeze dryer can be used to mimic the performance of a larger development freeze dryer, utilizing small quantities of costly materials, such as developmental biological drugs and requires far less material preparation time, while still facilitating robust and cost-effective cycle development.
