BFD-5 Freeze Dryers

Vikumer’s BFD-5 laboratory freeze dryer is ideal for freeze drying cycle development, process optimization and scale-up purpose. The system ensures precise process control and data recording, lyophilize your valuable products with documentation practice.

Laboratory R+D and Cycle Development Freeze Dryer

The BFD-5 freeze dryer is designed to boost your lab experiment of lyophilization process development, optimization and support you rapid scale up. Its a pilot scale lyophilizer with versatile design, allows freeze drying bulk materials in trays, in stoppered vials or in flasks. The silicone oil based shelf system guarantees maximum temperature uniformity and precise control. Control of the freeze dryer is by a full color touch screen HMI, which real-time displays system working status, key parameters, freeze drying steps management and data acquisition storage system.

Our BFD-5 lab pilot lyophilizer also available in clean room version, built in GMP room wall for a safe operation environment.
