Sample Preparation System delivers all-in-one functionality.
August 15, 2012 -
CentriVap Complete houses every component needed to begin processing multiple samples in diverse laboratory applications. Concentrator and -50°C Cold Trap, both standard components, help protect vacuum pump from corrosive effects of vapors and fumes as they evaporate from samples. Other features include aluminum rotor that holds up to 40 microcentrifuge tubes and 108, 12-13 mm tubes; chemical-resistant diaphragm pump; and CentriZap(TM) Strobe Light.

New CentriVap Complete is All-In-One System
The new all-in-one CentriVap Complete houses every component needed to begin processing multiple samples used in molecular biology, proteomics, genomics, cell biology, microbiology, biochemistry, drug discovery and analytical chemistry. The concentrator uses a combination of centrifugal force, vacuum and heat to speed evaporation.
Included in the CentriVap Complete is the Concentrator and a -50°C Cold Trap to help protect the vacuum pump from corrosive effects of vapors and fumes as they evaporate from the samples. Additional features include an aluminum rotor that holds up to 40 microcentrifuge tubes and 108 each 12-13 mm tubes, built-in chemical resistant diaphragm pump and the CentriZap(TM) Strobe Light. While directing the strobe light onto the spinning rotor, the rotor appears to be standing still, which allows the user to view the samples while the lid is closed. This feature saves time from having to stop the run, check the sample, and start the run again.
Acid-resistant models are available for corrosive chemical use and other models feature Heat Boost(TM), which surrounds the chamber wall and further speeds evaporation of high boiling point solvents.
