Manifold Style Freeze Dryers for Research
Manifold style freeze dryers use freeze drying flasks to lyophilize your samples. They do not freeze your samples, so you will need a shell bath or an ultra low freezer. There are two types of manifold freeze dryers, a bench top and a console. SP Scientific offers several models of both. There are many options and accessories to choose from. Please contact us and we'll make sure you the proper unit for your application.
Shelf Style Freeze Dryers
Shelf style freeze dryers can be programmed to freeze, primary dry, secondary dry and store your samples. They do freeze your samples, so you will not need an ultra low freezer. SP Scientific offers two models of benchtop shelf style freeze dryers. There are many options and accessories to choose from. Please contact us and we'll make sure you the proper unit for your application.
Small Pilot Scale
Lyophilizers for Research and Production
The next step up from the shelf style bench top freeze dryers is the small scale pilot unit. These units can have up to 6 shelves, come in various refrigeration packages and can be programmed to freeze, primary dry, secondary dry and hold your samples/product until ready to remove from the unit. Again, there are many options and accessories to choose from. Please contact us and we'll make sure you the proper unit for your application.
Large Pilot Scale
Lyophilizers for Research
Large scale pilot / small production freeze dryers come in two varieties. Very similar in looks, they both come with up to 15 shelves. However, the difference is the condenser. The Ultra has an external condenser that is separated from the product chamber. The Virtual has an internal condenser, meaning it is at the bottom of the product chamber. Both have their advantages, please contact us and we'll help you determine the best for your application.
