SP Industries To Distribute The Lyoflux® 200 Water Vapor Mass Flow Rate Monitor For Freeze Drying Monitoring and Control
September 11, 2014 Warminster, PA
SP Scientific has entered into an exclusive agreement with Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) to distribute the LyoFlux® 200 Water Vapor Mass Flow Rate Monitor for laboratory and pilot scale freeze dryers. The LyoFlux® 200 is an innovative two line-of-sight tuneable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) based device for continuous monitoring of laboratory, pilot and production scale lyophilization cycles.
Operating in conjunction with SP Scientific's LyoStar 3 development freeze dryer the LyoFlux® 200 enables users to better understand instantaneous changes in water vapor mass flow, and thus the sublimation rate for a given product during freeze-drying. This is of particular importance for products processed in atypical container systems including syringes and PCR microplates.
The LyoFlux® 200 has also been shown to provide highly sensitive end point determination for both primary and secondary drying; continuous mass balance determination; real-time calculation of average product temperature and resistance as well as assessment of heat transfer coefficients for vials (Kv) or other containers. The LyoFlux® 200 can be used for performance testing and design space calculations on a freeze dryer.
Compact in design the LyoFlux® 200 can be installed and utilized on all sizes of developmental freeze dryers. For further information please contact SP Scientific on +1-845-255-5000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Physical Sciences Inc. is located in Andover, MA, USA, and provides contract research and development services in a wide diversity of technical areas to both government and commercial customers. Interests span basic research to technology development, with an emphasis on applied research.
