Easy Aspiration of Small Volumes of Biological Liquid Waste
Product News Jan 12, 2016
VACUSIP is a portable benchtop vacuum aspiration system from INTEGRA that users can place wherever they need it. Besides increased mobility, the battery version of the VACUSIP allows users to keep the workspace clean and organized, making it ideal for the use in a Class II safety cabinet.
VACUSIP is an out-of-the-box solution. Simply connect the collection bottle to the built-in pump and choose the aspiration adapter matching users application. Operation is straight forward – switch the unit on and regulate the vacuum by applying pressure on the autoclavable hand adapter.
VACUSIP is an ideal tool for the aspiration of small volumes of liquids up to 10 ml. Whenever supernatant or excess liquids need to be disposed, the VACUSIP makes short work of the process. Typical applications for VACUSIP include aspirating small volumes of liquid out of microcentrifuge tubes or microplates as well as removing supernatants after RNA/DNA extraction, washing solutions from Western blots or ELISA and excess liquid from object slides / petri dishes.
The integrated pump in the VACUSIP runs silently and stops automatically when the vacuum is established. This prevents unnecessary pump operation and reduces noise improving users laboratory environment.
Disposal of aspirated waste liquids collected by the VACUSIP is a safe, clean and simple process. An autoclavable glass collection bottle is delivered with each VACUSIP aspiration system, ideal for multiple uses. Optionally available are disposable polypropylene bottles. Shatterproof and vacuum resistant, they eliminate risks of breakage and contamination by the biological agents during manipulation.
