Lyophilisation & diagnostic vials

Lyophilisation is used to increase the life-span of products such as vaccines or injections. By removing the water from the product, prior to closing the vial, storing and dispatching of the product becomes a lot easier. Later for injection, the product is restored to its original form.
Further applications are found in the food industry (e.g. instant coffee) or the technology industry (e.g. chemical synthesis for more stability).
