Upgraded Virtis AdVantage Plus Laboratory Benchtop Freeze Dryer

Upgraded Virtis AdVantage Plus Laboratory Benchtop Freeze Dryer

Release Date: July 22, 2011

SP Scientific has announced a new upgraded version of its market-leading Virtis AdVantage Plus laboratory benchtop freeze dryer.

The Advantage Plus now comes with an elegantly restyled exterior, easier shelving adjustment, and is equipped with the powerful Wizard 2.0 controller, the same process control software used on larger VirTis freeze dryers. The controller provides scientists with the ability to develop a complete freeze drying recipe, together with the flexibility to program and control individual pressure and temperature settings at each step of the process.

Incorporating silicone flooded shelves, the AdVantage Plus maintains a precise level of temperature control previously available only in pilot/production scale freeze dryers. Added operational convenience is provided by the newly designed condenser coil which can hold a total of six liters before defrosting. At only 26in (66cm) wide, the Advantage Plus requires a minimal amount of your valuable bench space yet enables product to be safely processed on over 3 ft2 (2,766 cm2) of usable shelf area.

The AdVantage Plus is a versatile system that can freeze dry bulk product or be configured for applications in stoppered vials. Side-mounted manifold valves provide the additional flexibility to freeze dry product in flasks. Three refrigeration choices (-53°C, -70°C, or -85°C) are available for the large 6-litre capacity condenser, depending on the type of product and solvents being lyophilized. Featuring the latest advances in benchtop freeze drying, the AdVantage Plus can be configured with up to three fluid-cooled shelves which maintain precise temperature control. The AdVantage Plus comes with a two year refrigeration warranty and includes CE marking.

SP Scientific is a leading manufacturer of laboratory to production scale freeze dryers / lyophilizers, centrifugal evaporators and concentrators, thermal control system and glassware washers. The company sells its products under well-known brands including Hotpack®, VirTis®, FTS™ and Genevac®. SP Scientific has ISO 9001:2000 registered production facilities in the USA and Europe.
