What to Bring for Your Analysis

Equipment Specifications

ANTEC houses two Labconco lyophilizers. The Freezone 6 system is suitable for biological samples processing. The Freezone 6 Plus Lyophilizer is designed for samples with low eutectic points, which contain residual organic solvents. Freezone 6 system is equipped with the Stoppering Tray Dryer with the temperature control from -40° C to 40° C. The Stoppering Tray Dryer is used for processing large loads of vials and stoppering them under vacuum, as well as for drying flat sheets of materials and sample temperature monitoring.

Users reserve individual ports for processing and may borrow lyophilization flasks and adapters from the core by contacting core personnel. ANTEC provides liquid nitrogen for lyophilization at no additional charge to users.
