Is lyophilization a sterilization process?

yesOnly If the process is followed by standards and protocol.The lyophilization process generally includes the following steps:Dissolving the drug and excipients in a suitable solvent, generally water for injection (WFI).Sterilizing the bulk solution by passing it through a 0.22 micron bacteria-retentive filter.Filling into individual sterile containers and partially stoppering the containers under aseptic conditions.Transporting the partially stoppered containers to the lyophilizer and loading into the chamber under aseptic conditions.Freezing the solution by placing the partially stoppered containers on cooled shelves in a freeze-drying chamber or pre-freezing in another chamber.Applying a vacuum to the chamber and heating the shelves in order to evaporate the water from the frozen state.Complete stoppering of the vials usually by hydraulic or screw rod stoppering mechanisms installed in the lyophilizers.Source..
