Genevac has announced the release of an application report that discusses the importance of closely monitoring sample drying processes and presents solutions to save time and prevent sample loss.

In many laboratories across a wide range of disciplines, removal of solvent from dissolved samples is a routine, daily procedure. 

The applications report provides a background to the principals of vacuum evaporation and provides data illustrating how different factors affect speed of drying and loss of sample.

The report demonstrates how fixed length drying methods typically are much slower than optimised procedures and with lower molecular weight organic molecules can lead to significant loss of the sample being dried. 

In addition, the report shows how using advanced dryness detection technology helps minimise sample loss by limiting the levels of vacuum and temperature used.
