Innovative methods for freeze-drying pharmaceutical products

Many pharmaceutical manufacturing procedures are based on bio-technological processes. Often, their molecular structure is extremely complex and their liquid form is unstable, which is why many bio-pharmaceuticals cannot be stored directly. Freeze-drying is the gentlest procedure for conserving the active ingredient solution. Because of critical operating conditions the butterfly valve GEMÜ 490 is particularly important.
