Your research requires perfect sample preservation? Lab-O-Nord presents the Cascade FTS FD2085C0000 Lyophilizer in INRS’ joint service laboratory (Centre eau, terre et environnement). Using freeze drying technology, this equipment reduces the risk of contamination or loss of compounds or volatile elements from previously frozen samples.
Lab-O-Nord is an online tool providing information on research infrastructure (major and secondary facilities, laboratories, and equipment) operated by INQ-affiliated entities. The objective of the tool is to promote research infrastructure and optimize its use.
