Direct Concentration of Large Sample Volumes into Vials
Product News Jan 28, 2015
SampleGenie 4 is the latest version of Genevac’s unique technology for direct concentration of large sample volumes into vials, designed for use in the Rocket Synergy Evaporator.
SampleGenie technology enables large sample volumes to be dried directly into vials, eliminating a number of time-consuming sample handling steps and the attendant risk of errors. The latest generation SampleGenie further enhances the exceptional capabilities of the original design.
Accommodating sample volumes of up to 250ml, and featuring a new vial adapter insert to suit a range of vials from 12mm to 28mm diameter and up to 70mm tall. SampleGenie 4 has been precision engineered to reduce the risk of vial breakage.
Traditionally protocols for concentration of chromatographic 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 has revolutionized this process enabling samples in Genevac Rocket Synergy, HT and EZ-2 series evaporators to be dried or concentrated, directly into a single vial eliminating the need for reformatting of samples after drying.
This, and the automation offered by Genevac evaporators simplifies the protocol to a <I style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">single overnight drying step before storage or analysis. Not only does SampleGenie remove time consuming manual steps - it lowers labour costs and improves data reliability.
SampleGenie technology, in conjunction with Genevac evaporators, is finding widespread use in applications including environmental analysis, metabolism and toxicology studies, food and beverage research as well as post purification protocols in chemical / life science research.
