New software platform improves freeze drying process control

16 Jan 2019

The LyoS 2.0 control system software is fully configurable and fully validatable for regulated pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications.

SP Scientific has launched LyoS 2.0 – a line-of-sight enabled lyophilizer control system able to control platforms from development to production units, making cycle transfer and scale-up much simpler.

New software platform improves freeze drying process control

The LyoS 2.0 control system delivers unmatched process control for all stages of the cycle, from freezing to primary and secondary drying. User definable process alarms protect the user's valuable product and automated system tests to ensure the lyophilizer is running optimally.

In addition, the control system is designed to control proprietary SP Scientific freeze drying technologies including ControLyo ice nucleation, SMART automatic cycle development and LyoFlux TDLAS continuous process monitoring.

Optional 21 CFR Part 11 compliance capabilities ensure that LyoS 2.0 control system software is both fully configurable and fully validatable for regulated pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications. SP Scientific offers testing protocols intended to support the processes that will be performed by the purchaser and/or end user, as well as onsite control system IQ/OQ validation support and a comprehensive factory-initiated software validation.

Designed for SP Scientific's research, development, and production lyophilizers, including the LyoCapsule, LyoStar, Genesis, Ultra and LyoConstellation. LyoS 2.0 and SP Line of Sight technologies can be upgraded on to certain other freeze dryers.
