Fast Unattended Concentration of Environmental Samples
Product News Oct 13, 2015
The Rocket Synergy Evaporator from Genevac is proven to provide fast, unattended operation that significantly improves environmental laboratory productivity.
Developed as a result of users’ demands for an evaporator that could quickly process large-volume environmental samples in parallel without supervision, the Rocket Synergy Evaporator can concentrate or dry 18 ASE tubes or up to 6 large-volume 450 ml flasks. This enables the user to focus on other tasks, confident that the Rocket Synergy Evaporator will achieve reproducible evaporation with excellent recovery rates.
In addition using Genevac’s proprietary SampleGenie™ technology in conjunction with the Rocket Synergy evaporator enables samples to be concentrated directly into an autosampler or storage vial, eliminating the need for manual sample transfer.
To automate transfers from ASE® vials the Genevac Flip-Flop™ system can be used. This elimination of manual transfer steps and the automation of the evaporation / concentration process deliver significantly improved environmental laboratory workflow, better reproducibility of results and maximizes sample recovery.
To achieve the dual goals of very fast evaporation, with precise temperature control to protect environmental samples, the Rocket Synergy Evaporator uses a patented low temperature drying technology to directly heat the sample flasks.
By pulling a vacuum on the samples, solvent(s) boil at a low temperature, which is determined by the pressure. The Rocket Synergy Evaporator is equipped with the advanced performance features, such as automated end point detection, Dri-Pure® anti-bumping technology, and accurate temperature regulation to further protect the integrity of your samples.
A two-stage cold trap is built into the Rocket Synergy Evaporator, providing high levels of solvent recovery, even with volatile organic solvents. Under the control of the evaporator, the cold trap automatically drains to ensure that high solvent recovery is maintained, no matter what mix of solvents are being removed. The compact Rocket Synergy Evaporator fits neatly onto a laboratory bench or into a fume hood.
