Freeze drying services

Freeze drying brings stability and is therefore becoming increasingly popular. At BioConnection, we have many years of experience in the freeze-drying of sterile medicines. We offer freeze drying services for small or larger scale badges.

Reliable lyophilization services

When it comes to freeze-drying pharmaceutical products, reliable process control is indispensable. Therefore, we have full control over the freezing process. We currently have two GMP freeze-driers available for you. One at our clinical scale filling line (2-50L) with a shelf area of 3m2 using manual loading and unloading on trays. Our commercial freeze-dryer of fully automatic, integrated in our new filling line, and offers a shelf area of 10m2. Both freeze-dryers fully comply to EMA and FDA regulations.


Our freeze-drying services feature:

  • Reliable process control
  • Compliant with FDA requirements according to 21 CFR Part 11
  • Shelf areas ranging from 3 m2 up to 10 m2
