Introducing two brand new Christ benchtop freeze dryers Epsilon 1-4 LSCplus and Epsilon 2-4
LSCplus. John Morris Scientific is proud to announce the release of these high performance, universal laboratory and pilot systems for lyophilisation of solid or liquid products in ampoules, vials, glass flasks, plasma bottles or dishes.
Epsilon 1-4 LSCplus and Epsilon 2-4 LSCplus set the standard for pilot systems of the highest quality and performance. They share a geometrical likeness with large production machines and use similar temperature-controlling systems.
What operations are possible with these units?
•Prefreezing products on temperature-controlled shelves
•Freeze drying (sublimation) of products according to preselected desired time, temperature and pressure profiles
•Final drying of products
Epsilon 1-4 LSCplus and Epsilon 2-4 LSCplus units have an internal ice condenser temperature with a minimum of -55°C and -85°C respectively and is available with one shelf with 0.11 m2 useable surface area.
New cooling techniques provide for shelf temperatures of -45°C or -70°C (prefreezing) in the very compact chamber. This permits extremely sensitive pharmaceutical and biotech products, e.g. amorphous structures with a low glass transition point to be freeze dried safely.
Simple, process-specific documentation is possible on all systems as a result of the LSCplus Lyo-Screen-Control and LyoLogplus interface. An added option is the Windows-based LPCplus software for PC-based process control and documentation. LPCplus is widely used in typical pilot freeze dryers up to large-scale productions systems and follows GAMP and cGMP guidelines.
