Great instrument, multi-purpose and cost-effective.
Application Area: Cell culture and immunoassays
"I consider the VACUSIP system to be the best in the market in terms of cost-effectiveness and multi-tasking. The only disadvantage I found was with the after-sales technical service from the distribution company in Mexico. After one year of use, it decreased the suction force, and I’ve not ben able to get technical support to solve the problem."

Great portable vacuum aspirator
Application Area:Aspirate samples after kinetic binding assays
"Our lab does not have in house vacuum, so we ordered this as an alternative. I love the portability, we have even been able to bring it to conferences and trade shows and run our assay as a live demo."
VACUSIP – Liquid waste gone in a sip
In the laboratory small volumes of liquid need be disposed of on a daily basis. This includes the removal of excess liquids from reaction tubes, aspiration of supernatant after centrifugation steps, removal of washing solutions from microplates and much more. Until today, this is often accomplished by self-made systems.
VACUSIP provides an out-of-the-box solution for the wide array of liquid waste disposal tasks carried out at the laboratory bench. It features a reliable low noise pump, enabling it to operate independently from an external vacuum source. The battery version of VACUSIP contains a rechargeable battery for even more flexibility. A unique hand operator allows a fine regulation of the aspiration flow and accepts a variety of adapters.
The 0.5 l glass bottle is quickly exchanged and all components coming in contact with liquids can be autoclaved. If the inactivation of the liquid waste is carried out externally, a disposable bottle may be used.
Features and benefits:
• Integrated, silent pump makes the VACUSIP location-independent.
• The battery version eliminates cable mess in a laminar flow hood and increases mobility.
• Automated pump shut-off optimizes battery run-time and pump life.
• Quick exchange of waste bottle due to screw cap sealing.
• Hydrophobic filter prevents aerosols and liquid from entering the system.
• Very compact and space saving, HxWxD: 345x120x162 mm only.
• No additional equipment necessary and maintenance free
