AdVantage Pro

Benefits offered by the Advantage Pro

  • Designed with both scale-up and scale-down, in mind,
  • Cascade refrigeration provides a -82°C large 6L capacity condenser coil, enabling lyophilisation of a wide variety of products and solvents.
  • Optimal heat transfer - silicone flooded shelves mean the AdVantage Pro maintains a precise level of temperature control (+/- 1.0 °C).
  • Fully customisable - up to ten thermal treatment and twelve drying steps for the ultimate recipe customisation.
  • Secure data storage and trending software option - ethernet-enabled for effortless data sharing. Developed to meet the lyophilisation requirements of today’s pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications.

  • Compact design and small footprint - Only 56.5 cm wide, yet with up to 2,766 cm2 of usable shelf area, the AdVantage Pro enables product to be safely processed using minimal bench space.

AdVantage Pro Freeze Dryer Trending Software

Supplied pre-loaded on a dedicated laptop PC offering plug and play ethernet connectivity to your AdVantage Pro freeze drying unit (when purchased with an AdVantage bench top unit – retrofit options are available). This iFIX-based software package provides graphics and interactions complimenting those found in the Merlin and LyoS series of Pilot scale control and trending software so simplifying upscaling from bench top processes.

What it has:-
  • Recipe manager with 16 recipes
  • Continuous historical data trending
  • Proficy Historian data archiving
  • Data export capability

LyoStar  4.0

The LyoStar 4.0 is a showcase of advancement in freeze dryer engineering, enhanced R&D, process development and scale-up, designed to improve speed to market of biopharmaceutical products.

Benefits offered by the Lyostar 4.0

  • Data rich environment: Ensuring product processing success, even if deviation from 'design space' occurs
  • Scalability: LyoStar 4.0 offers the ability to scale up from R&D to Production scale and back again
  • Faster and more efficient: SMART Technology & Controlyo reduce processing and reconstitution times significantly
  • Reduced contamination risk: The non-invasive sensors of LyoFlux TDLAS and wireless probes of Tempris offer a reduced risk of cross-contamination
  • Eco-friendly: LyoStar 4.0 uses a 'greener' refrigerant gas that has been selected due to its lower global warming potential
  • 21 CFR Part 11 Compatible: The flexibility to scale-up or down is an important aspect in the process for developing pharmaceutical compounds. The LyoStar 4.0 has the same 21 CFR Part 11 compatible software as the LyoConstellation, making scale-up, or down, an easy transition.

Ideal for rapid lyo cycle development, optimization and scale-up, the LyoStar 4.0 incorporates the latest innovations in freeze drying technology to ensure precise process control and reliability. Enabling this are a number of upgradeable PAT tools including: LyoFlux® TDLAS sensors for vapor mass flow measurement, AutoMTM/SMART™ technology – a primary drying cycle optimization tool, ControLyo® Nucleation Technology for accurate freezing point control, a 3D modelling package for computational fluid dynamics and process monitoring, plus Tempris® wireless sensors for real-time product temperature measurement.
