Productive Drying of Natural Product Extracts
Product News Sep 25, 2012
Traditionally rotary evaporators have been widely used for drying natural product extracts. However the drying process with rotary evaporators is typically slow and prone to cross contamination problems due to solvent bumping and samples that foam. Additionally after drying, scientists are often left with trying to scrape out their samples from the walls of the rotary evaporator flask.
Drawing upon over 20 years of technological innovation in evaporation science - Genevac has developed an elegant solution that solves all these problems and more. The Rocket™ high speed evaporation system will evaporate up to 6 flasks in parallel, and can dry these directly into a vial, so removing your sample is easy.
The Rocket runs automatically and has proven, patented technology that eliminates bumping and foaming freeing you to tasks more interesting than watching your evaporator. Your productivity is transformed. Adding Genevac's proprietary SampleGenie technology to the Rocket enables you to concentrate your samples directly into a vial, eliminating the need for flask scraping and consequent sample transfer losses.
