Telstar completes their GMP production freeze-dryer range

Telstar has released a new single-vessel GMP production freeze-dryer optimized to maintain conventional work space while making the footprint up to 20% smaller than a lyophilizer with standard external condenser configuration. Lyomega SV is a compact GMP freeze dryer designed to optimize the usable technical area in facilities with limited space. The integration of the chamber and condenser allows a reduced and optimized size –from 4m2 to 30m2 (40m2 - pit mounted) - whose chamber contains a high capacity work space of product shelves area. The new version of the compact GMP clinical and production-scale freeze dryer accommodates also a condenser of high capacity, up to 570kg, integrated under the product chamber.

The new model of compact freeze-dryers is fitted with a side gimbal door which requires half the space of a regular hinged door. This allows easy access for maintenance procedures and also provides improved operational handling. Equipped with a versatile refrigeration system based on mechanical refrigeration (compressors) or liquid nitrogen (LN2), the external side of the vessel contains also a dimple jacket to provide a fast cooling after SIP.  The thermal system guarantees higher performance and operational efficiency saving water consumption.

Lyomega SV belongs to the Telstar’s customized range of GMP production freeze-dryers designed to operate under aseptic conditions. The compact single-vessel unit has been adapted to include the innovative vial automatic loading and unloading system Lyogistics Zero, the only system that can be cleaned (CIP) and sterilized (SIP) in place, inside the freeze-dryer chamber.
