New freeze drying microscope offers clearer images for easier analysis

publication date: Apr 14, 2014
author/source: Biopharma Technology Ltd

The latest generation freeze drying microscope, Lyostat4, offers superior LED illumination for a sharper image and reduced maintenance. Its new design also reduces footprint.

LyostatAbout Freeze Drying Microscopy

Freeze drying microscopy is an established technique for accurately and easily establishing the point of collapse, the most important critical temperature for developing safe and robust freeze drying cycles. Essentially operating as a micro freeze-dryer, FDM enables freezing and drying of a real sample to be observed in real time.

Superior Image Clarity and Resolution

As FDM analysis is based on visual identification rather than thermal data, it’s vital to ensure maximum image clarity and resolution. The Lyostat 4 provides the latest generation LED light source for even sharper image. It is brighter than the previous Halogen illumination but at the same time generates significantly less heat. This is accomplished by combining the LED source with an efficient, custom-designed electronics module. The LED system also provides superior longevity with a maintenance-free lifetime of more than 60,000 hours, and nominal electrical power consumption for operation savings and “green” credentials.

Space Saving

Lyostat4 is compact, saving 20x21cm bench space over Lyostat3. Used with the new stand, the footprint can be reduced to just 45x30cm (not including vacuum pump) and also eliminates trailing cables.
