LYOMAX
Industrial Freeze Dryer

Freeze-drying involves removal of solvent such that the molecular structure of the active ingredient of the drug is least disturbed. LYOMAX is the most comprehensive range of custom-built freeze dryers for those who require more than a standard solution.

Beyond Limits

Although one of the oldest techniques in the pharmaceutical industry for the preservation of unstable materials, there has been an increasing demand for lyophilized products and equipment, in particular in the last decade. In fact today, about half of all sterile injectables are lyophilized.

The freeze-drying process of today demands increased process control, with reduced processing time augmented with upgrades in equipment to remain compliant with a changing regulatory landscape. To accommodate such growth, IMA LIFE uses its in-depth process knowledge to make freeze drying faster, safer, cheaper, and compatible with all industry requirements and challenges.

LYOMAX configurable options and custom designs provide the optimal solution for each application.

LYOMAX meets the highest possible technical requirements, the strictest standards of the global licensing authorities, and comply with all the current guidelines such as GAMP, cGMP, FDA etc.
