An efficient, robust instrument set to transform rotary evaporation.

Visitors to Analytica in Munich, April 1-4 2014, will be first in the queue to see KNF Lab’s new RC900 Rotary Evaporator, an efficient, robust instrument set to transform rotary evaporation and make the technique easier and safer than ever before.

The elegant, easy-to-clean design of the RC900 offers a range of novel features that focus on easy and reliable operation and increasing operator safety - including a unique remote control unit, simple one button functions for routine tasks such as changing flasks, easily adjustable rotation speeds and dynamic temperature control - resulting in a breakthrough in performance and reliability for a wide range of applications.

Dr Alexander Scherer, Chair of Organic Chemistry at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, has beta-tested the new system in his laboratory and said: “Our experience with KNF Lab pump systems has been great, and we were happy to test the rotary evaporator. We exposed the RC900 to real laboratory conditions, such as corrosive and aggressive solvents, and made further suggestions on how to make the system even easier to operate. KNF Lab took these suggestions on board and the result is a high-performance system that features a user-friendly, intuitive touch screen and automated functions which really make life easier, helping to guarantee highly efficient and safe operation. We are delighted to be one of the first laboratories to buy one.”

Jim Findlay, Marketing Manager Laboratory Products at KNF Lab, added: “At KNF Lab, we pride ourselves on our strong reputation for producing solid, high-performance equipment for real laboratory situations. The new RC900 is a perfect example of this, designed to make rotary evaporation more user friendly than ever before.”
