The benchtop lyophilizer works on the same principle of removing water from an object. It freezes the material, reduces pressure and adds heat to sublimate water molecules off of the sample, with each task is controlled by various mechanisms within the instrument, such as the vacuum system, condenser or refrigeration system. The Benchtop Lyophilizer excels in its role because the dehydration occurs through sublimation, so the product does not lose its structure.
