Lyophilization as a solution to limiting the cold chain

Coronavirus crisis is requiring all those companies related to the production of reagents, as well as the research and development of diagnostic kits, to work without pause and beyond their capabilities in order to supply the growing demand for these devices.

One of the limitations of these reagents for the diagnosis of COVID-19 is the need to keep them at very low temperatures. This fact makes logistics and preservation very difficult, making the process of transporting the product to the points where is required more expensive.

With the lyophilisation of these reagents, this relevant drawback disappears; being able to keep these products at ambient temperature and even at higher temperatures than usual. Once lyophilized, the reagents can be moved by any means, without the need for a refrigerated transport chain.

With extensive experience in the field of lyophilization, Comser becomes the strategic partner to help companies of this characteristics to overcome the increased demand in the fight against COVID-19. Providing all the knowledge of the necessary technology to carry out lyophilization, in our R&D laboratory we develop and optimize lyophilization processes specific to relevant diagnostic reagents to COVID-19.

Once the cycle has been designed, our infrastructure and equipment allows us to manufacture the freeze-dried product in our laboratory. In the case that this step is to be integrated into the organization, we offer advice on the selection of the most appropriate equipment for it.

In addition, Comser has a dedicated qualification and validation division with a highly qualified team for the qualification of respirators or the validation of processes for new production lines.
