Freeze-drying is today one of the most widely used techniques for the removal of water from food and medicinal products in general. The lyophilized product is a dry powder that can quickly re-gain its appearance and the structural and functional properties of the starting material. One disadvantage of such a technique mainly lies in the employment of resources for its implementation, and in the difficulty to develop an adequate interaction between formulation and process to maintain the product’s desired properties.
APTSol advanced equipment for freeze-drying and adequate analytical instrumentation allow the characterization of the achieved products. Moreover, the company’s team can rely on a solid experience in the field of freeze-drying and in the creation of experimental designs. Entrust APTSol for the development of your lyophilized products.
