The Labconco Freeze Dryer 8 allows water to be removed from samples by converting ice directly to water vapor. The freeze drying process depends upon a balance between the heat absorbed by the sample to vaporize the water and the heat removed from the condenser to convert the vapor back to ice. The freeze dryer has a -50°C condenser and an ice capacity of 8 liters.
