Lyophilizer Validation Equipment
Lyophilizers are tricky pieces of equipment for thermal mapping, due to their extreme low temperatures and short shelf space. Thermocouples are the traditional thermal mapping tool, but need hours of time to set up.
A better option for thermal mapping lyophilizers is wireless data loggers. Data loggers can be simply placed inside the chamber and will record the temperature data much more easily.
Wireless data loggers from Lives International come with a copper cap specifically designed for lyophilizers. The RTD sensor is placed against the cap, which lays flat on the lyophilizer shelf. This allows you to collect accurate thermal data about the shelves.
