The SA25 Liquid / Lyo System adds the capacity for drug product lyophilization as well as aseptic liquid filling.

Meet the SA25 Liquid / Lyo System.

Liquid filling or lyophilization? We’ve got you covered. The Cytiva SA25 Liquid / Lyo System integrates two additional workcells with the SA25 to add the capacity to load and unload a freeze-dryer, as well as aseptic liquid filling.

Fully automated, risk free, and totally flexible for vials, syringes and cartridges, the extended SA25 Liquid / Lyo System is here for all your filling and lyophilizer loading needs.

SA25 Liquid / Lyo System

The SA25 Liquid / Lyo Workcell can handle any lyo product in vial form, with the ability to freeze-dry syringe and cartridge formats as well.

With short changeover times and the capacity to continue filling and closing liquid dosages during lyophilization cycles, the machine is ready for diverse portfolios of drug products in all forms and formats.


The short lead time for the SA25 Liquid/Lyo System helps you get liquid and freeze-dried drugs to market faster.

Speed to market

Helping you get your drug products to market faster, the delivery lead time for the SA25 Liquid / Lyo System is short and won’t delay your project.

Customers have been able to begin liquid filling operations before adding lyophilized drug product capacity at a later date.

Reduced risk

Loading and unloading a freeze-dryer is the highest risk process in aseptic production. Material handling errors can cause significant product loss and even batch failures.

Cytiva’s robots safely and securely load and unload your drug product. Individual vials can not tip over or jam, as they are secure in their nests.

The SA25 Liquid/Lyo System uses an optimal aseptic process within closed gloveless isolators.

Drug product quality

Like you, high product quality is our number one concern. The SA25 Liquid / Lyo System uses an optimal aseptic process within closed gloveless isolators that eliminate the need for operator intervention.

The drug product remains within an ISO5/Grade A environment throughout the filling, loading, and closing processes. Inert gas stoppering can be used for long-term product stability.
