SP Hull LyoCapsule Freeze Dryer

The LyoCapsule™ Freeze Dryer simulates large R&D freeze dryers so you can screen formulations for freeze drying feasibility, understand critical product attributes and define product and process design space even with limited/expensive materials.
LyoCapsule’s small freeze drying chamber has a cylindrical inner chamber and utilizes wall temperature control to assure that edge vials dry under the same conditions as the center vial.
