Video: Gail's Story-Laboratory Freeze Drying Risk & Reward

Gail tells Kelly about her irreplaceable freeze drying sample

This a story worth revisiting, and it helped spark a huge innovation for freeze dryers. Let me introduce you to Gail. She was responsible for something irreplaceable: a key link to the future of her company... and a cure. If you lyophilize samples in your lab, her story may be very similar to your own. 

Gail needed to track the integrity of her freeze drying process, which could often last more than two days. But she could never be certain that her samples were fully lyophilized and that nothing had gone wrong with them. Any unexpected change in the vacuum level, temperature or even laboratory conditions could ruin her irreplaceable samples, and she wouldn't know until it was too late to do anything about it. 

When Gail visited Labconco, her story led to fundamental changes in how laboratory freeze drying is done. With the creation of the Lyo-Works Operating System, samples can now be monitored from anywhere via smartphone. And with End-Zone™ End Point Detection, FreeZone Freeze Dryers can even send you an alert when your samples have lyophilized completely.
