Sample temperature control, reliable, great service
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Metabolomics

"Our metabolomics facility needed the ability to dry samples quickly. Vacuum centrifugation is often the fastest but most speed-vacs do not have a wide range of SAMPLE temperature control. This instrument allows us to maintain our samples at -4C while they are drying. This has greatly improved the recovery of a few metabolites that are more delicate. The system can also be programmed to have different sample temperatures at different times. This is especially nice if you are working in multiple solvent systems. The cold trap is also quite good. We have also found Labconco's customer support excellent. We had some issues with the cold trap lid. They replaced it with a much better one at no extra cost. "

CentriVap Centrifugal Vacuum Concentrators use a combination of centrifugal force, vacuum and heat to speed evaporation of multiple small samples. They offer maximum throughput required by biology, microbiology, biochemistry, pharmaceutical research and analytical chemistry laboratories. As many as 148 samples may be processed at once. Sample sizes range from a few microliters up to 25 microliters. The accessory Microtiter Plate Rotor holds four standard or two deep well plates.

CentriVap Centrifugal Vacuum Concentrators are available as a compact benchtop component or as a “system” combined with the CentriVap Cold Trap. The CentriVap Cold Trap helps protect the accessory vacuum pump from the corrosive effects of vapors and fumes as they evaporate from the samples. The CentriVap Ultra Low Cold Trap provides protection from low freezing point solvents. The CentriVap Mobile System combines a concentrator and cold trap into a single mobile console.

The Gel Dryer is available as a benchtop component of CentriVap Gel Dryer Systems or separately. When part of the system, it shares the vacuum pump with the concentrator via vacuum tubing and a 3-way valve.
