Saves us a lot of time. Great product!
Application Area:I mainly use it for washes in 96 well plates, e.g. when I am doing small scale ChIP experiments
"It is a really useful and nice system. It is a closed system, so it also doesn't smell if you use it for bacteria. I mainly use it with the 8-channel adapter which makes my washes in a 96 well plate much faster. It saves me a lot of time. We have three VacuSafes in our lab, one of which we have already had for several years. They are really robust and easy to clean. I can fully recommend this product. "
VACUSAFE – Safe aspiration of liquid waste
Laboratory vacuum pumps are commonly used to aspirate liquids such as media from cell cultures or supernatants after centrifugation. Protecting the operator and equipment from contamination by an overflow trap and filter is good laboratory practice when disposing biological, chemical or radioactive liquid waste.
The VACUSAFE combines vacuum pump, collection bottle, overflow protection and filter in an all-in-one liquid aspiration system. Such a closed aspiration system offers the most effective method for containment of hazardous liquids by maximal personal protection.
The ergonomic VACUBOY hand operator and its adapters provide the flexibility to aspirate liquids from a wide range of laboratory containers including cell culture vessels and multi-well plates. The VACUBOY is the perfect match to the VACUSAFE.
Features and benefits:
• Collection bottle outlet with hydrophobic filters to block hazardous aerosols.
• Automatic shut-off combined with a signal when bottle is full.
• Quick couplings to connect tubing for safe bottle installation.
• Quite operation for pleasant working.
• One-button operation to adjust vacuum for simple use.
• VACUBOY included for convenient aspiration of all kind of liquid waste.
• Space saving design for minimal work space consumption.
