Old Becomes New: Retrofits of Lyophiliser Control Systems
While lyophilisers can remain operational for many years, lyophiliser
control technology has moved on – and it is this that can render a system
out of date. As a way of controlling costs, one option is to retrofit the
control system alone – producing a lyophiliser that will provide many more
years of reliable service, without the expense of buying new equipment.
