Improve Your Sample Lyophilisation
Featured Product Sep 18, 2017
Genevac announces that state-of-the-art condenser technology is enabling its HT Series 3 evaporator range to set a new benchmark for fast and efficient sample lyophilisation.
When working with certain solvents, such as HPLC solvents, a fully dried result can be hard to achieve due to interactions with the dissolved sample - resulting in the formation of a gum or oil. Lyophilisation is often the preferred method of sample drying in this case, achieving a high level of dryness with low residual solvent levels. The light, powdery finish of samples prepared in this way enables them to be easily removed and weighed out. However, Lyophilisation can be a time-consuming process.
The lower operating temperature (-75°C) of the condenser on the HT Series 3 evaporator, together with automatic solvent draining mid-run, has made Genevac’s proprietary FastLyo™ methodology even more efficient. Using the improved FastLyo™ methodology on an HT Series 3 evaporator - now even the most difficult to handle aqueous / organic solvent mixtures can be removed to produce a clean lyophilised sample with a success rate as high as 96%.
