What is Lyophilization ?

We read of lyophilize vaccines and it is but natural that this question comes to our mind. Lyophilization or freeze drying is a process in which water is removed from a product after it is frozen and placed under a vacuum, allowing the ice to change directly from solid to vapor without passing through a liquid phase. e.g. Measles, BCG vaccine, antibiotics etc.
