Caliper Life Sciences TurboVap LV Concentration Workstation
The Caliper Life Sciences TurboVap LV Concentration Workstation provide an automated alternative to Rotary and Vacuum-Style Evaporators. Designed to work with tube sizes from 1.5mL to 35mL and evaporate/concentrate up to 50 samples simultaneously. Utilizing a proprietary gas-vortexing action, its fast, unattended operation doubles sample throughput, frees up resources and improvises quality control.
Features and specifications include:
- Rack holds 15 mL tubes
- 220V System
- Holds up to 50 samples simultaneously
Sample Evaporation in Minutes – Not Hours
The TurboVap LV Concentration Workstation is a high speed, small volume sample concentrator. It is an efficient alternative to the inconvenient setup, constant monitoring and long evaporation times that are characteristic of conventional techniques – with the added convenience of unattended, automatic operation.
Simple to Use
With the TurboVap LV Workstation, you simply “load and leave” your samples. Turn on 1 to 5 manifolds
depending on the number of samples. The automatic timer will alert you when your samples are ready.
Improve Lab Productivity
- The TurboVap LV workstation enables you to use your time more efficiently by allowing you to:
- Increase throughput by processing more samples in less time.
- Eliminate interruptions required to monitor the evaporation or adjust needles.
- Eliminate vacuum pump and cold trap maintenance.
- Be alerted with an audible alarm when evaporation is complete.
Saves on Space and Costs
The evaporation process is driven by patented gas vortex shearing action, further enhanced by a temperature controlled water bath and adjustable gas flow rates. This combination saves time, bench space and operating costs while improving sample to sample consistency.
Versatile and Effective
The TurboVap LV Workstation offers many interchangeable tube racks giving you the flexibility to process different sample volumes effectively. Most racks can hold up to 50 samples with volumes of 1.5 mL to 30 mL.
No Hood Space Required
Unlike most evaporators, the TurboVap LV system doesn’t need to sit in a hood, wasting valuable space. Solvent vapors are drawn out through an exhaust fan and vented into a hood using the ducting provided.
Proven, Innovative Technology
The evaporator directs the gas flow into the sample tubes at a precise angle. The vortex created by the blowing gas travels down the tube to the solvent surface, where it increases the gas/solvent interface – providing faster evaporation than conventional after methods.
