An established market leader in laboratory evaporation, BÜCHI Labortechnik GmbH is launching Lyovapor L-300 and Lyovapor L-200 as part of an innovative new platform for freeze-drying. While the L-200 is designed for quantities up to 6 kg (-55 degrees Celsius), the real showstopper is its big brother - the L-300 is the first freeze dryer for unlimited capacity (-105 degrees Celsius). Thanks to its Infinite-Technology, the Lyovapor L-300 is also the first laboratory freeze dryer to support continuous sublimation. With two condensers and automated hygienic steam cleaning, the L-300 can be used for unlimited volumes and operates continuously with minimal maintenance. Both the L-300 and L-200 can be individually configured and adjusted to changing requirements.
Thanks to the Infinite-Control technology that both the L-300 and L-200 use, they also provide continuously updated information on condenser and product temperatures, as well as chamber pressure. "With Infinite-Control, customers have full control of all relevant process parameters anytime anywhere," says Philipp John, Business Area Manager Formulation at BÜCHI. Users can operate the Lyovapor from the dryer itself or from the workstation, while all process parameters can also be monitored from mobile devices. The Infinite-Control software supports data recording, customized reporting and quick design of methods and real-time diagrams. What’s more, the Pro version of the control unit also facilitates sample protection and end-point detection.
