Temperature measurements in a lyophilizer and the importance of lyophilisation
Lyophilisation or freeze-drying, is a process that removes water from biological and organic matter. The process of freeze-drying does not damage the material as heating does. We also preserve their structure and composition. Lyophilisation is based on freezing water, followed by depressurisation and the addition of sufficient heat. In this way, the frozen water in the material sublimes directly from a solid to a gaseous aggregate.
How to check if your lyophilizer is showing the correct temperature?
The temperature in the lyophilizer is measured in the lyophilizer itself using a meter with an internal sensor. This means that such a meter is exposed to very low temperatures as well as vacuum.
For accurate and reliable measurements of the temperature in the lyophilizer, we recommend measuring with data logger or memory unit EBI 12-T101 which has been designed for just such purposes. The Logger has an internal sensor and a particularly robust housing. This enables it to withstand such temperature conditions.
