SampleGenie technology lowers labour costs and improves data reliability.

A series of technical papers are available from Genevac that demonstrate the advantages and benefits that their proprietary SampleGenie technology offers to chemical, environmental and food labs tasked with pooling and concentrating GC and HPLC fractions.

Traditional protocols for concentration of GC or HPLC fractions has involved drying multiple fractions in an evaporator, re-suspending pooled fractions into a single vial and then re-drying before storage and analysis.

Even with modern centrifugal evaporators such processes typically take 2-3 days to complete.

The development of SampleGenie™ technology enables samples in Genevac evaporators to be concentrated, without loss of volatile components, directly into a single GC or HPLC vial eliminating the need for reformatting of samples after drying.

This, and the automation offered by Genevac evaporators simplifies the protocol to a single overnight drying step before storage and analysis.

Not only does SampleGenie remove time consuming manual steps - it lowers labour costs and improves data reliability.
