Pharmaceutical companies often use freeze-drying to increase the shelf life of products, such as vaccines and other injectables. By removing the water from the material and sealing the material in a vial, the material can be easily stored, shipped, and later reconstituted to its original form for injection. Another example from the pharmaceutical industry is the use of freeze drying to produce tablets or wafers. The advantage of which is less excipient and a rapidly absorbed and easily administered dosage form.
Bioquell can bio-decontaminate freeze driers using our rapid, unique hydrogen peroxide vapour generators. HPV decontamination is perfectly suited for freeze driers due to its residue-free nature and its excellent compatibility with materials.
