CryoDry CD8 All in one solution for freeze drying that's easy to load trays in and is very fast freeze dryer

All-in-one-Process – In the past users have been forced to freeze their product in poorly controlled environments (such as deep freezers), and then transfer into a lyophiliser for drying. This causes undesirable ice formation and potentially product transfer related melt-back – both of which negatively impact on drying behaviour, performance and, ultimately, product quality.
Easy-Load – Easy to load and unload cupboard style chamber.
Fast – Cooled and heated shelves for fast freezing and even faster drying. Typical time savings of more than 60% (based on in-house study, compared with passive systems)
