Freeze Drying Monitoring & Control
News Sep 12, 2014
SP Scientific has entered into an exclusive agreement with Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) to distribute the LyoFlux® 200 Water Vapor Mass Flow Rate Monitor for laboratory and pilot scale freeze dryers.
The LyoFlux® 200 is an innovative two line-of-sight tuneable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) based device for continuous monitoring of laboratory, pilot and production scale lyophilization cycles.
Operating in conjunction with SP Scientific’s LyoStar 3 development freeze dryer the LyoFlux® 200 enables users to better understand instantaneous changes in water vapor mass flow, and thus the sublimation rate for a given product during freeze-drying.
This is of particular importance for products processed in atypical container systems including syringes and PCR microplates.
The LyoFlux® 200 has also been shown to provide highly sensitive end point determination for both primary and secondary drying; continuous mass balance determination; real-time calculation of average product temperature and resistance as well as assessment of heat transfer coefficients for vials (Kv) or other containers. The LyoFlux® 200 can be used for performance testing and design space calculations on a freeze dryer.
Compact in design the LyoFlux® 200 can be installed and utilized on all sizes of developmental freeze dryers.
Rapid Removal of Arsenic From Drinking Water...By Moss!News
A moss capable of removing arsenic from contaminated water has been discovered by researchers. And it happens quickly – in just one hour, the arsenic level is so low that the water is no longer harmful for people to drink.READ MORE

"Genetic Jenga" Helps Understand How Our Genes Control Our CellsNews
To fully understand how our cells work, we can't focus on just one gene, but must instead look at combinations of genes. Researchers have published a study which knocked out multiple genes, like removing bricks from a Jenga tower, to better understand how they work together.READ MORE
