The Science Behind Lyophilization

ISO Cert

In May 2021, NEB acquired Fluorogenics Limited™ (FGL), facilitating the combination of NEB’s expertise in enzymology with FGL’s extensive understanding of the lyophilization process. This innovation, expertise and know-how enables us to deliver a best-in-class solution for your lyophilization needs.

Lyophilization can offer several advantages, including ambient storage, faster transport time and reduced logistics burden. Our Lyo Sciences Team will work closely with you to understand your needs and deliver a solution that will meet the specifics of your system or workflow. Our facilities are ISO 13485 certified for both research and manufacturing, enabling us to deliver high-quality products and service for research and diagnostic applications.


NEB Lyophilization Sciences currently resides in Porton Science Park, Porton Down, Salisbury,
Wiltshire, United Kingdom.


In Fall 2023, we will be expanding to a 30,000 sq. ft. purpose-built facility in Oxford to meet our
customer's lyophilization needs at scale.
