FreeZone Triad Freeze Dryers

These all-in-one, dual refrigeration freeze dryers/stoppering tray dryers reach -85° C for processing low eutectic point samples. One large shelf holds small containers or bulk samples.

The FreeZone Triad Benchtop Freeze Dryers offer it all for lyophilization: stoppering tray dryer and sample freeze drying with four sample valves on the left side. Samples for both types of freeze drying can be run at once. The chamber pre-freezes samples to save money and time, eliminating the need for a separate freezer and product transfer.

The upright stainless steel collector coil holds 2.5 liters of ice before defrosting. Two 1/3 hp HCFC/CFC-free refrigeration compressors cool the collector to -85° C (-121° F), suitable for aqueous or dilute acetonitrile samples. Temperature-controlled shelves range from -55° C to +50° C (-67° F to +122° F) and a maximum of -75° C (-103° F) during pre-freezing. The shelves provide pneumatic stoppering with a diaphragm, eliminating the need for compressed gas.

Lyo-Works™ OS provides a real time display of collector temperature and vacuum level, shown on a 5" full color, capacitive touch screen. A stoppering tray dryer and four valve ports are built-in.


  • 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.
