Description: 

The Virtis Unitrap II, Model 10-100V, freeze dryer (lyophilizer) is designed for the removal of water (moisture) from aqueous solutions under carefully controlled conditions of vacuum and temperature.  This process takes solid water (ice) and converts it to a gaseous phase (vapor) and then deposits this freed moisture into the condenser.  The moisture that is converted to a gas is removed without damaging the crystalline structure of the product caused by the freezing ice crystals. This, therefore, protects the product’s structural integrity and ensures ease of rehydration when the product is used.
