What is Lyophilization?

The LyoGen Process

 

Lyophilization, or freeze drying, is a process by which water is removed from a product after freezing at extremely low temperatures and placed under high vacuum, allowing the ice to sublime to water vapor.

This process creates an extremely stable product, enabling reagents that normally require storage at temperatures as low as -80°C to be stable at room temperature for several years.

Lyophilized products eliminate the need to ship products in styrofoam containers with dry ice, greatly reducing the client’s carbon footprint as well as reducing and simplifying shipping costs.

LyoGen’s proprietary process uses stabilizing reagents, custom lyophilization cycles, and custom LyoDose™ formats.  The resulting products are very stable at room temperature and reconstitute instantly in the presence of aqueous solutions.
