Linkam Scientific Instruments has launched their FDVS platform, a lyophilisation system to replicate large-scale freeze-drying processes.
Replicating large scale industrial freeze drying processes as smaller test runs is an effective way to save time, cut costs and perfect the technicalities of an operation run. Building on the experience gained from the FDCS Freeze Drying stage, the manufacturer has developed a chamber system capable of housing up to seven lyophilisation vials. By incorporating vials, the system works with greater sample volume and uses enough material to better simulate large-scale industrial processes while minimizing sample wastage. The system comes with an ergonomically designed table housing the controller units with stage, optical microscope and imaging system mounted on top.
