As their demand skyrockets, the challenges of cold-chain handling and storage hamper the efficiency and accuracy of molecular diagnostic assays. Standard catalog reagents often require complex shipping and storage conditions, and may compromise results if mishandled. 

This white paper explores the transformative role of lyophilization, a time-tested technique that is widely used in clinical labs. With the global freeze-drying/lyophilization equipment market projected to reach USD 7.3 billion by 2031, scientists are increasingly turning to this method to streamline diagnostic workflows and ensure stability in ambient conditions.

This white paper advocates for lyophilization as a promising solution for the future of molecular diagnostics. By addressing challenges related to storage, shipping, and accessibility, lyophilization enables efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable diagnostic testing. The resource encourages diagnostic developers to consider lyophilization from the inception of their projects and underscores how collaborative partnerships help successful utilization of lyophilization in the evolving landscape of molecular diagnostics.
