Infographic: lyophilization, concentration or evaporation

Which is best for my samples?

This infographic will help you select the right methods and equipment to best preserve your specific samples. Lyophilization, concentration and evaporation (including nitrogen blowdown) methods are all considered. 

In concentration and evaporation, liquid molecules become vapor molecules. In lyophilization, sublimation occurs when solid molecules become vapor molecules. By bypassing the liquid phase, many samples are better preserved.
