Genevac Introduces EZ-2 Series Centrifugal Evaporator
Product News Jun 29, 2007
The EZ-2 Series centrifugal evaporator from Genevac combines top performance and sample safety in a compact benchtop unit.
Similar in size to a rotary evaporator the design of the EZ-2 Series presents advantage within parallel synthesis and medicinal chemistry, as well as for general-purpose solvent removal needs in life science laboratories.
According to Genevac, using the technology in evaporation science, the EZ-2 Series is able to evaporate solvents in typically half the time of other evaporator designs.
Running an EZ-2 Series evaporator is as simple as 1, 2, 3, just load your samples, select maximum temperature for samples, select solvent type and hit start. Offering true unattended operation capability an EZ-2 Series evaporator requires no user training.
Solvents collect in an insulated, plastic coated glass vessel, enabling the user to see the progress of evaporation and determine when the trap should be emptied. Requiring no defrosting the glass vessel is removed by a quarter turn, allowing the solvent to be poured directly into the waste container. The vessel is replaced with a quarter turn, and the EZ-2 is ready to run again.
Each EZ-2 Series evaporator has been designed to concentrate or completely dry samples. The system will accommodate a selection of sample holders enabling evaporation from most common sample container formats including round-bottom flasks up to 500ml, tubes up to 160mm long, custom reaction blocks and shallow or deep-well microplates.
To meet the need of the many life science companies switching their compound generation programmes from serial chemistry to parallel synthesis, an EZ-2 Series evaporator is also able to take tubes, flasks and vials directly from the synthesis process.
