Advances in Freeze Drying for Protein Discovery

Advances in Freeze Drying for Protein Discovery

Release Date: January 04, 2011

SP Scientific Inc. has announced that they will exhibit their latest Virtis/FTS™ freeze-dryers and lyophilization systems at PEP TALK 2011 (San Diego, CA, USA).

Visitors to Booth 2 will be able to see the latest SP Scientific freeze-drying and lyophilization innovation for improving process control and minimizing issues of scale-up with the introduction of the LyoStar 3.   Configured with the most innovative controls and instrumentation, including Smart™ Freeze-Dryer Technology and Praxair's ControLyo™ On Demand Nucleation Technology, the LyoStar 3 is the ultimate lab scale system for formulations studies, process optimization and scale-up work. Interested persons will be able to learn more during a 15 minute presentation given by SP's Vice President, Mark Shon on January 12, 2011 at 3:35 PM.

The LyoStar 3 is a freeze-dryer that provides unmatched process accuracy, reliability and unique ease-of-use features.  For applications ranging from process development for scale-up to product processing for stability studies to formulations work the LyoStar 3 delivers consistent results other freeze dryers cannot match.  Uniquely available with ControLyo™ Nucleation On-demand Technology, the LyoStar 3 provides Protein Discovery Scientists with precise control over their freeze-drying processes. This breakthrough technology was developed to specifically control the freezing step of lyophilization.  Until now, the freezing step of lyophilization was uncontrolled due to the random nature of the nucleation or crystal-forming process. Using ControLyo™ technology on the LyoStar 3 now makes nucleation control a reality by regulating the nucleation temperature to within 1°C of its freezing point.  The results are improved product uniformity, quality and yield.

Visitors to the SP Scientific booth will also be able to review and sign-up to the company's comprehensive 2011 program of free LyoLearn educational webinars.
