Telstar Introduces the New Version of Compact Benchtop Lab-Scale Freeze-Dryers to the Asia & Africa Markets
This new model of pilot-scale freeze dryer bridges the gap in the market that was hitherto addressed through the use of larger scale laboratory equipment
The latest compact version of twin-vessel pilot-scale freeze dryer specifically designed for applications in experimentation, research, and formulation to develop recipes in pharmaceutical freeze-drying processes –LyoBeta Mini- will be presented by Telstar at Arablab 2016 (Dubai, March 20-23).
The compact lab freeze dryer (W94cm x H76cm x D63cm) has been designed by Telstar in twin-vessel configuration, with an external condenser of capacity 6kg, separately located from the product chamber; an innovative feature which is unusual in this range of compact bench-top equipment. Additionally it is equipped with an automatic stoppering system that enables automatic sequences to be programmed and includes an electromagnetic aeration valve and piezo-pressure sensor for use in combination with the pneumatic stoppering device. The compact laboratory freeze-dryer LyoBeta Mini offers 0.18m2 of useful shelf surface area with temperature control from -55 to +70°C. A cascade refrigeration system using CFC-free refrigerants cools the shelves and will reduce the temperature of the condenser to -85°C.
Igloo, -86ºC ecological ultra-low freezer for lab applications
During Arablab Telstar will also be demonstrating the Telstar Igloo, a compact and ecological -86ºC ultra-low-temperature freezer for secure preservation of samples specifically directed at clinical and research centres. Designed under the green line concept, Telstar Igloo ultra-low-freezer provides an innovative and energy efficient storage system, superior temperature performance and uniformity. It also offers the lowest power consumption and low noise level (< 50 dB(A)) in a small footprint, which enables a more optimized freezer layout and the flexibility to adapt to any space. The new compact ultra-low freeze dryer has been developed by Telstar utilizing their in-house cold storage technology.
