SP Scientific Announces New Demonstration and Training Lab

August 30, 2012     Warminster, PA
(revised 3/25/2014)

SP Scientific announces its new Demonstration and Training Laboratory at the SP Industries Warminster facility. The new lab is part of a facility-wide upgrade and will play an important part in future activities.

    The 1200 square foot laboratory will be used to:
  • Establish feasability and optimize freeze drying cycles for client products.
  • Train clients in freeze drying cycle development and optimization.
  • Provide a research environment for further equipment and process enhancements.
  • Demonstrate the various features of the SP Scientific equipment line.

All standard SP Scientific products will be available for use, and specialty items can be brought in upon customer request.

    Current SP Scientific equipment in place includes:
  • VirTis AdVantage Plus benchtop freeze dryer
  • VirTis BenchTop BTK4ZL benchtop freeze dryer
  • VirTis 25L EL Genesis pilot freeze dryer
  • VirTis 25L EL Genesis pilot freeze dryer with vial extraction
  • FTS LyoStar 3 research & development freeze dryer with controlled nucleation capability
    Additional SP Scientific equipment available with prior notice:
  • FTS ThermoJet ES precision temperature cycling system
  • FTS HistoChill tissue freezing bath
  • Genevac EZ-2 Elite centrifugal evaporator
  • Genevac Rocket centrifugal evaporator
Visitors to the demonstration lab are also accorded the opportunity to tour the Warminster facility's Production Scale Lyophilizers fabrication and assembly area and the Thermal Products assembly area.


The new SP Scientific demonstration lab is an integral component of its 4-day Lyophilization Laboratory training courses. The courses cover freeze drying and cycle optimization techniques and focus upon the freeze drying process from formulation and thermal analysis to cycle development and optimization, packaging, and troubleshooting. The courses include hands-on development, freeze drying, and review of a representative base formulation using the laboratory's equipment.

The laboratory's freeze dryers are used by the course attendees to lyophilize their formulations as an integral component of the curriculum. Additionally, live demonstrations of freeze dry microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, and vibrational spectroscopy were presented at the appropriate points in the training.
