VirTis Lyo-Centre 3.5L DBT ES-55 Benchtop Lyophilizer / Freeze Dryer
ID# 33879 VirTis Lyo-Centre 3.5L DBT ES-55 Benchtop Lyophilizer / Freeze Dryer - This Lyophilizer powers on and initializes. We are able to navigate the settings. The condenser powers on and chills. The vacuum pump powers on and pulls good suction. We tested the lyophilizer with a piece of metal laid across the top of the unit and pulled vacuum and were able to achieve 150 mTorr and a low temperature of - 48 C (minus 48 degrees Celsius). We did test the unit with the manifold installed and could only achieve 300 Torr and - 48 C. There is a crack in the acryclic manifold and it may be leaking there. You may need to purchase a new manifold or it can possibly be repaired. See the photos for all the accessories including the manifold. The system is about $20,000 new - this is a good price for a used, good working system even if you have to buy a new manifold at $2000.
