FreeZone Small Tray Dryers are designed for lyophilizing small to moderate bulk sample loads or numerous sample batches and feature a brushed stainless steel and glacier white, powder-coated steel exterior and side-mounted power switch.
They include three 10.6" x 11.7" heated shelves and temperature probes for monitoring sample temperature. Chamber can accommodate two additional shelves (sold separately). A clear acrylic viewing door provides complete visibility of the shelves. A 200-watt electric heater on each shelf warms to +60°C and a microprocessor maintains the system temperature within 3°C of set point.
Lyo-Works™ OS provides a real time display of freeze dryer and tray dryer parameters on a 5" full color, capacitive touchscreen on the connected FreeZone 6, 12, or 18 Liter Freeze Dryer (sold separately). Data may be exported via USB or Ethernet. A microprocessor-based controller allows up to 30 different temperature programs to be stored and repeated, each using up to 16 different steps. The display provides navigation to manual or program mode, probe temperatures, vacuum in mBar, Torr or Pa, step of the program in progress, time remaining in present step, and end of program, as well as alarms. Alerts and current operating parameter reading can be sent automatically to user-entered email addresses.
Samples must be pre-frozen. Freeze dryer, vacuum pump with displacement of at least 98 liters/minute, and freeze dry glassware (if not bulk freeze drying) are required (not included).
