Video Introduction to Automated Microplate Sample Drying
Product News Apr 11, 2014
Porvair Sciences has announced a new video that provides an informative introduction to the Ultravap Mistral - a next generation robot-compatible dry down station designed to remove the 'bottleneck' of solvent evaporation from microplates.
Drawing upon Porvair’s market leading position in nitrogen blow down evaporation - the UltraVap Mistral offers a simple, turnkey solution for integrating an automatic dry down step into users automated liquid handling protocol.
The UltraVap Mistral is fully optimized to work with robotic liquid handling systems from suppliers including Beckman, Hamilton and Tecan and features a “shuttle” design capable of serving and retrieving microplates to and from the robot deck without further need for off-deck handling.
Offering faster drying than centrifugal evaporation for single plates, significant increases in sample throughput are achieved through advanced evaporator head technology and an innovative manifold design, which directly injects heated nitrogen into each individual well of the microplate simultaneously.
Installation requires only connection to gas supply and mains electricity. Safety of operation is ensured as this CE-marked compact unit fits into all fume cupboards and boasts full integral fume management within the unit.
