Pharmaceutical Freeze-drying and Vacuum Drying for Research and Manufacturing in the .01 Torr to 400 Torr Range Vacuum Pressure is used in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing to: Help create bulk and active ingredients for FDA approved drug products Increase the shelf-life of a drug product Sterilize medical devices Lyophilization, also known as freeze-drying, is a process used for preserving biological material by removing the water from the sample, which involves first freezing the sample and then drying it, under a vacuum, at very low temperatures. The low pressure environment helps minimize oxidation during drying. Lyophilized samples may be stored much longer than untreated samples. The resulting precipitate is a shelf-stable powder. This powdered drug is later reconstituted at point of care for patient use.
