Telstar Enhances Performance and Simplifies Maintenance of Lab Freeze-Dryers Through the Integration of More Robust Vacuum Pumps
The latest generation of compact laboratory freeze-dryers –LyoQuest- will be presented by Telstar at Arablab 2015 (Dubai, March 23-26).
The new generation of the most compact laboratory freeze-dryer incorporates significant improvements in efficiency, performance and maintenance. More robust vacuum pumps have been incorporated into the equipment, which helps ensure better performance and longevity, in addition to providing easier maintenance and operational advantages, such as reduced noise level. The new vacuum pumps integrated into the Lyoquest freeze dryer are provided by ULVAC, the leading Japanese brand globally recognized in laboratory and industrial fields.
LyoQuest belongs to the latest generation of compact laboratory freeze dryers; it has a condensation capacity of 8 liters and can carry out pre-freezing, primary drying, and secondary drying processes. This is the only bench-top laboratory freeze dryer on the market that combines this breadth of functionality into a single unit so that users can perform complete cycles on a range of sample containers (vials, trays, ampoules, and flasks) using the same piece of equipment.
In addition to being versatile, LyoQuest also enables users to create recipes comprising time, temperature and vacuum control via its integrated PLC control system. This easy-to-use device includes a touch-screen HMI with an intuitive menu and mimic diagram. The ‘LyoLogger’ monitoring software facilitates connection of the unit to a PC so collected data can be transferred to files for analysis using Microsoft Excel. The software also makes it possible to view graphs showing the pressure, condenser temperature, and, if working with a chamber, product and tray temperature. The innovative design of this freeze dryer results in an extremely compact unit with large condensation capacity. The LyoQuest’s ice condenser is made from AISI 316L stainless steel and includes an automatic defrosting function for quick and easy de-icing. Furthermore, its design enables many product formats to be pre-frozen by the device, without the need for an additional freezer.
Telstar will also be present at Arablab with its latest equipment for the biotechnology industry, laboratories, hospitals and research centers: Telstar BioVanguard, the new range of high quality Class II Biological Safety Cabinets designed to be used for high risk microbiological research and in highly toxic applications, and; Telstar Igloo, the new line of compact, ecological and green ultra-low temperature freezers for secure preservation of samples and specifically directed at clinical and research centres.
