R&D Freeze Dryer

Laboratory Unit for Advanced Research & Development


The NiXTAR floor type freeze dryers and lyophilizers are laboratory units that have been designed specifically for advanced research centers. These freeze dryers combine many of the features of large freezing drying units, dependable for lab experimental or clinic trials.

R&D freeze dryers are supplied fully assembled, well debugged and ready for operation after connect vacuum pump. All necessary accessories are correct mount on a floor model cabinet, all sides panels can disassemble for maintenance.

Configured to meet your requirements. The R&D freeze dryers provide a tray areas up to 1m2. Raw materials placed on shelves in drying chamber, can be chilled to -55C and later heating in sublimation stage, coupled with a -85C condenser that collect the vapors efficiently.

Classic R+D Freeze Dryer

Classic R+D Freeze Dryer

  1. High advanced PLC based control system.
  2. Freeze drying steps management.
  3. Real-time freeze drying curve.
  4. System and components working status alive display.
  5. Automatic freeze drying, from raw product chilling to vacuum drying.
  6. Flexible of use, bulk material or vials stoppering.
  7. Documents and Validation Package.

Functions and Highlights:

PLC and User Friendly Touch Screen Controller

Has been proved in industrial models, maximum reliability and reproducibility guarantees of your freeze drying.

Automatic Freeze Drying

When a freeze dryer support automatic working, it should have the functions of: Shelves cooling/heating, Pressure control, Programmable freeze drying steps and Meet GLP system.

Efficient and Precise Temperature Control

Shelves chilling and heating rate >1C/min, range -55C to +70C with temperature variance <+/-1C. Which is ideal for R+D purpose.

Elegant Design

Box type structure, modular subsystems, superior craftsmanship, Stainless steel constructed chamber and shelves surface polish Ra<0.4um, flatness <0.5mm/m.

Meet GMP and GLP

GMP and GLP is the basis of your lab lyophilization, since they guarantee you do things in the right way, remove obstacles ahead of later commercial production.
