BTEC to test novel microwave technology

Published Sept. 22, 2014

BTEC recently agreed to investigate a new bench-scale microwave unit soon to be launched by Lambda Technologies, Inc. (Morrisville, N.C.) in fall 2014. The unit employs Variable Frequency Microwave (VFM) technology to provide uniform heating. BTEC will evaluate the use of VFM technology in several biotechnology or pharmaceutical applications that require heating, including sterilization, depyrogenization, and drying.
