LYOFAST
Industrial Freeze Dryer

Freeze-drying of biopharmaceuticals has become a routine procedure, which leads to an increase in product stability. LYOFAST is the pre-engineered cost-effective, reliable and efficient standard solution.

Freeze-drying of biopharmaceuticals has become a routine procedure, which leads to an increase in product stability. LYOFAST is the pre-engineered cost-effective, reliable and efficient standard solution.

More than a standard solution

The freeze drying process has important applications in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and pharmaceutical freeze drying is now a standard process used to stabilize, store or increase the shelf life of drug products and other biologicals.

LYOFAST is IMA Life solution to keep freeze-drying competitive as a pharmaceutical processing step.

For either bulk format or liquid in vials, ampoules or syringes, the LYOFAST units are designed for freeze drying high value products, such as: vaccines, antibiotics, cytostatics, biologicals, hormones, active ingredients, and reactives.
