Porvair Sciences' Ultravap™ Microplate Evaporator has become a trusted standard for removing unwanted solvents from laboratory microplates. The open-access design of the Ultravap, combined with full RS232 control of every parameter, enables integration with laboratory robotics.

In response to customer feedback - Porvair have refined the Ultravap™ design to further ease integration with laboratory robots, increase operational versatility and to enable simple safe venting of removed solvents.

The plan form of the edges of the unit has been re-designed to allow robot gripper arms an extra 22mm of linear access to the evaporation deck. This allows the gripper to handle even the heaviest deep well blocks with ease and to position them under the evaporation head.

In addition, Porvair has made available a set of side panels which fit on either side of the unit to ensure that exhaust gas carrying solvent fumes can be extracted either to the front or rear of the unit. To facilitate easy connection of the rear vent to a standard fume extraction duct, a new optional adaptor allows direct connection of a 4" diameter fume duct to the evaporator.

Software and hardware drivers for the Porvair Ultravap™ are now available for Tecan, Hamilton and Beckman laboratory robots.

Designed to safely remove solvents from 96 or 384-well plates, the Ultravap™ Microplate Evaporator is a versatile tool proven to optimize microplate sample preparation productivity. The Ultravap™ achieves high sample throughput through advanced evaporator head technology and a manifold design, which directly injects heated nitrogen into each individual well of the microplate simultaneously.
