FreeZone Small Tray Dryers lyophilize small to moderate bulk sample loads or batches of vials or serum bottles. The Small Tray Dryers have three 10.6” x 11.7” shelves that heat up to +60° C. They are designed to fit on either FreeZone Benchtop or Console Freeze Dryers.
Lyo-Works™ OS lets the user set up to 30 programs, with up to 16 steps each; record, chart and store data; and receive email alerts. The tray dryer connects to a FreeZone Freeze Dryer that provides a real time display of the tray dryer’s parameters on a large capacitive touch screen.
FreeZone Freeze Dryer manufactured after July 2017 and vacuum pump are required (not included).

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.
