Pharmaceutical Freeze Dryer

Pharmaceutical Freeze Dryer

Freeze drying and lyophilization is a widely used technique for pharmaceuticals and biologicals preservation. The process starts with raw material freezing, and then reduces the drying chamber pressure, gradually apply heat to the frozen materials to allow the ice to sublime. Sublimation technology not involve liquid phase, which means it doesn’t need high temperature to vaporize the water. In another word, freeze drying is a low temperature dehydration method. Products are dried gently and without being degraded, well preserve their physical structure and biological activities. Typically, freeze dried drugs contain minimum moisture (<1%) and maximum shelf life (>5 years) at room temperature.
