FreeZone Legacy Freeze Dryers

FreeZone Legacy Freeze Dryers (also known as lyophilizers) are designed to handle the lyophilization needs of research and pilot plant laboratories. Benchtop models with 2.5 and 6 liter collector capacities that reach -50º C are available.

FreeZone Freeze Dryers with Lyo-Works OS are available with capacities from 2.5 to 18 liters. They have collectors that reach -50º C, -84º C, ideal for freeze drying samples with low eutectic temperatures including ones containing acetonitrile, and -105° C, ideal for freeze drying samples with ultra low eutectic temperatures including ones containing dilute amounts of methanol or ethanol.

  • Gail's Story Changed the Way We Think About Lab Freeze Drying

    When she visited Kelly at Labconco, Gail's struggle led to an epiphany that would change how laboratory freeze drying is done. With the creation of Lyo-Works OS, samples can now be monitored from anywhere. And with End-Zone™ End Point Detection, now FreeZone Freeze Dryers can even send you an alert when your samples are completely lyophilized.

    Here are some simple tips to get the best results when freeze drying. These tips can also help you avoid breaking glassware, and help you select the best method of freeze dry preparation.

  • Aseptic Adapter Usage and Overview

    Valved flask adapter to maintain aseptic conditions when freeze drying. Used with Labconco Fast Freeze Flasks 120mls up to 2000mls and Mini Stoppering Chamber. These adapters allow the user to fill a freeze dry flask under sterile conditions prior to lyophilization. After filling the flask, the valve is closed off isolating the contents for transportation to the freeze dryer. Once the flask is attached to the freeze dryer and a vacuum is pulled, open the flask to vacuum using the adapters valve. After freeze drying, close the valve and transport the samples back to the biosafety cabinet to open.

What's the difference between a home freeze dryer and a lab freeze dryer?

While the general lyophilization concept, sublimation, is the same for both, the equipment, and the results, are vastly different. Below are the key differences between a home freeze dryer and a laboratory, or scientific, freeze dryer...

How to freeze dry faster

Most commonly known as freeze drying, lyophilization is a dehydration process used to preserve a perishable or biological material. Freeze drying drastically reduces the surrounding pressure around a frozen sample, allowing the frozen and bound water in the sample to sublimate directly from the solid phase to the gas phase...
