BFD-10 Freeze Dryers

The Vikumer BFD-10 laboratory freeze dryer combines many of the features of larger commercial freeze dry systems.
Allow operator precise control entire freeze drying process, automatic running and monitoring the system working status. Which is ideal for R+D and scale-up purpose.

Lab Advanced Research Freeze Dryer

The BFD-10 freeze dryers are designed for advanced research institutes and professional laboratories, where precise control of the lyophilization process is needed. These freeze dryers combine many of the features of large freeze drying systems, either system performance or controller performance.

High advanced PLC and user friendly HMI based control system, allows fully automatically processing of an entire freeze drying cycle. And allows operator program up to 30 drying steps, flexible and accuracy control each step temperature and lasting hours. This system guarantees maximum reliability and reproductivity, comply with cGLP and exactly same as an industrial unit.

No doubt, the BFD-10 will great help investigators boost their study process, of the documentation practices and data acquisition, which is the concept of cGMP and as a mean of quality control. Especially in clinic trial or scale-up stage, the BFD lyophlizer is a dependable tool.
