Together with our knowledge of pilot-scale and industrial freeze-dryers we offer a uniquely comprehensive service covering all aspects of freeze-drying from pre-formulation through to full-scale production and dried product analysis.

We aim to meet the precise needs of our customer’s projects, and will agree a work program and a budget that is appropriate to the size and stage of your project. We are happy to run a single cycle or individual analysis for our clients, or agree a complete formulation development program with you.
