Original Press Release:
CentriVap® DNA Concentrator Uses Centrifugal Force and Vacuum to Safely Concentrate DNA Samples
The CentriVap DNA Centrifugal Concentrator processes DNA samples and other minute quantities of solvents. Up to 60 each 1.5 ml and 72 each 0.5 ml micro centrifuge tubes may be processed at once.
With a built-in, removable diaphragm pump, the CentriVap DNA Concentrator has 9 user-set programs accessible with the touch of a few buttons. The Quick-Start(TM) One Button Start Up starts the rotor, heater, timers and vacuum pump. Three Quick-Start Buttons store one user-set program each. The Quick-Stop(TM) Rotor Brake stops vacuum within seconds to open the valve and bleed air into the chamber. Separate heat and run times allow the heat to be turned off sooner than the rotation to protect heat sensitive samples from excessive heat exposure. The Run Time turns off all functions after the set period of time has expired. Both an inlet trap to collect liquid coming off the samples and an exhaust trap to collect liquid coming off the pump exhaust are included. An optional CentriZap® Strobe Light which utilizes a flashing light the same frequency as the rotation of the rotor allows remaining samples to be viewed in either sample tube or microtiter plate while it is spinning.
