Lyophilization of biological samples
Send the biological sample to Biorbyt (10 samples up to 1ml);
Biorbyt will freeze-dry the sample within 48 hrs and return the lyophilized product;
Store the product long-term or ship at room temperature.
Biological research relies on reagents such as proteins, peptides, or DNA to carry out experiments. Researchers often require storing samples for a prolonged period. Storing a protein, for example, in a buffered solution is possible but might lead to degradation in the long term. One possible solution to this problem is freeze-drying or lyophilization. The sample is frozen at a temperature below -40 degrees. This is followed by the application of a vacuum at a specific temperature for sublimation to occur, evaporating the water in the frozen sample. This leaves behind a powdery sample which can be stored long-term or shipped at room temperature to other collaborating labs.
