Elementary lyophilization involves thinking about processes that occur in an environment foreign to common human experience. The science of lyophilization is taught at the college level in two courses, over three to four semesters. The courses are physical chemistry and mechanics, and they are often split over departments of chemistry, physics and engineering. Obviously, the information from those courses is not tailored to freeze drying and encompass greater depth than required for freeze drying alone.

QPS splits up lyophilization into multiple topics. We address products and processes and we also do the mechanical engineering and, not as an afterthought, we can handle the control system and programming for both PLC's and HMI's.
