Safe and rapid drying at a highly affordable price with miVac sample concentrator.

For laboratories looking for a safe, rapid and affordable sample concentrator for biological samples - Genevac reports on the significant operational benefits of their miVac sample concentrator compared to 'blowdown' evaporation systems.

Removing solvent by blowing inert gas into open sample vessels, blowdown evaporators often have to operate at 50°C or more to concentrate samples in a relatively short space of time.

For many laboratories dissolution of samples in low boiling solvents is not always an option.

To efficiently remove water and other higher boiling solvents, vacuum concentration, as used by the miVac sample concentrator, is widely accepted as the only effective method.

For laboratories looking to concentrate samples that may thermally degrade, the miVac sample concentrator is able to reduce the temperature of the solvents being concentrated therefore users samples are always kept cool and safe.

Unlike blowdown evaporators that often have no means of preventing sample splashing during concentration - miVac vacuum concentrators completely eliminate this potential source of sample cross-contamination.

Increasing environmental concerns are making venting of removed solvents to the atmosphere, the method used by blowdown evaporators, unacceptable.

In conjunction with the highly efficient SpeedTrap the miVac sample concentrator is able to safely recover almost all removed solvents.

The miVac sample concentrator range has been designed to meet the requirements for safe and rapid drying at a highly affordable price.

Featuring capacity from six to twenty stacked shallow-well microplates or 48 to 200 micro centrifuge tubes of 1.5ml size - miVac concentrators are able to operate effectively even in high throughput environments.

Each system features an LCD display with digital controls enabling programming of time and temperature. Requiring only electricity to operate the running costs of a miVac concentrator are very low.
