Caliper TurboVap LV Concentration Evaporator
- EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
The Caliper LifeSciences Turbovap LV Evaporator provides fast evaporation of sample extracts with bench-top operation and flexible test tube sizes for small volume samples and provides an automated alternative to Kuderna-Danish, Rotary, Vacuum-Style and Nitrogen Blow-Down Evaporators. This concentration workstation utilizes a proprietary gas-vortexing action, its fast, unattended operation of up to 50 samples at a time doubles sample throughput, frees up resources, and improvises quality control.
The Caliper LifeSciences Turbovap LV Evaporator delivers concentration of solvents following solid phase extraction clean-up of drug samples or pesticide extracts. The TurboVap LV can also be used in conjunction with the Rapid Trace Automated SPE workstation that collects extracts in 12 mm x 75 mm or 16 mm x 100 mm test tubes. Samples can be in GC vials, microcentrifuge tubes conical bottom tubes or test tubes. This concentration evaporator is time saving, up to 10 times faster than centrifugal evaporation and 3 times as fast as hot blocks. The Caliper LifeSciences Turbovap LV Concentration Evaporator is microprocessor controlled, and monitors both the time elapsing and the water bath temperature, automatically shuts off the nitrogen gas, and runs diagnostics. This concentration evaporator requires no additional equipment, such as a vacuum pump or vacuum trap.
