Our teams have been developing new skills in the freeze-drying of pharmaceutical, cosmetic and nutraceutical products as well as medical devices for more than 30 years.
We have two sites equipped with numerous freeze-dryers of different sizes with a total freeze-drying capacity of over 220 m² with more than 1,000 m² of clean rooms. We can assist with your freeze-drying projects for pilot batches ranging from a few grams to several metric tons. Our teams can help you with the formulation and optimisation of freeze-drying cycles (link to dedicated page) and the production of all types of product.
FREEZE-DRYING OF PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTS
Our sites have the capacity to manage all kinds of batches from small ranges through to clinical trials and commercial batches. Freeze-dryers of different sizes, adapted to different production requirements, are available on each site.
FREEZE-DRYING OF MEDICAL DEVICES
Our LYOFAL site develops and creates innovative medical devices, from formulation to the development of suitable packaging for the end product. Freeze-drying allows for the development of devices which can release active ingredients with specific properties without adding any preservatives (activating of healing, enhanced absorption of exudates). Freeze-drying also allows products to be modelled in a chosen form.
FREEZE-DRYING OF COSMETIC PRODUCTS
We freeze-dry cosmetic products to preserve unstable active ingredients in a hydrated, heat-sensitive environment: occlusive contact patches, gels in dry form, dry emulsion. Freeze-dried treatments penetrate the skin more effectively and have greater bioavailability.
FREEZE-DRYING OF INGREDIENTS
We can freeze-dry all ingredients used in cosmetics or food products such as: lactic bacteria, probiotics, donkey’s / mare’s milk, fruit purées, various plant and marine extracts.
FREEZE-DRYING OF REAGENTS
We freeze-dry reagents in diagnostic products using bottles of different sizes.
FREEZE-DRYING OF ACTIVE INGREDIENTS AND PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTS
Our LYOFAL size freeze-dries raw materials used in pharmaceutical products and products derived from biotechnologies in bulk or in a workshop according to good European manufacturing practices as well as active ingredients, excipients, bacteria, biomasses, marine, plant and protein extracts, aqueous solutions and suspensions.
FREEZE-DRYING OF VIRUS STRAINS
Our LYOFAL site has recently inaugurated a zone dedicated exclusively to the freeze-drying of injectable clinical batches.
- Haemostatic compresses
- Diagnostic reagents
PACKAGING OF FREEZE-DRIED FORMS
- Glass bottles
- Bulk powder in bags
- Blister packs (all types)
