Spinco's lyo division provides turn-key freeze drying solutions to pharma and vaccine manufacturers enabling their exports to regulatory markets with stringent compliance needs. PAT/NIR and process homogenization solutions are also offered with on-site application support.

The company has warehouses in Chennai and Hyderabad to provide door delivery of complete instruments and consumables either duty paid or through customs-bonded warehousing. These facilities are ISO 9001 certified and offer complete column chemistry and molecular biology reagents/kits.
