Announcing Strategic Partnership with LyoWave®

Millrock Technology Partners with LyoWave to Integrate Purdue Freeze-Drying Innovations

Kingston, NY, May 7, 2024 – Millrock Technology, a leading provider of advanced freeze-drying solutions, is proud to announce a strategic collaboration with LyoWave, a high-tech startup commercializing innovative microwave heating technologies developed at Purdue University. This partnership comes on the heels of LyoWave licensing the intellectual property through the Purdue Innovates Office of Technology Commercialization.

Millrock Technology will offer LyoWave’s system for already installed and new freeze dryers, starting with the popular REVO® Research and Development Freeze Dryer. The LyoWave system implements microwave heating for current freeze dryers, which allows users to increase their throughput with minimal changes to existing installations.

Millrock CEO and President, Martial Pabon, said LyoWave’s technology has the potential to deliver high value for the industry by both improving product consistency and reducing drying times.

“LyoWave’s new solid-state microwave technology provides significant improvements in product quality while shortening processing times, which adds significant value to our customers,” Pabon said. “At Millrock, we are always looking at new technologies that advance freeze-drying science. We are excited by the possibilities of this collaboration.”

Alina Alexeenko, LyoWave president and co-founder, said, “Our innovations will be used to boost Millrock’s freeze-drying systems’ capacity to manufacture diagnostic reagents and bulk lyophilized materials, and accelerate process development for new lyophilized drug products.”
