With so many centrifugal concentrator models and accessories to choose from, it can be very confusing to select the best system for your sample preparation needs. Choosing the correct model and components will help ensure your sample’s integrity and lengthen your concentrator’s functional life.
Although in many cases more than one concentrator model or accessory would be sufficient for the job, several important factors about your samples will dictate the most appropriate model for your application. You may also want to consider not only what your current concentrator needs are, but also what other applications or sample types you might use in the future. Since centrifugal concentrators cannot be significantly modified after purchase, you can make a smarter choice and protect your lab equipment investment if you also plan for any foreseeable future uses that you can predict.
It’s important to know the following in order to select the best centrifugal concentrator for your application:
1. Solutions being concentrated and any potential solutions that may be used
2. Sample volumes, sample tube sizes and the number of samples that will be concentrated simultaneously
3. Maximum temperature to which sample can be exposed
4. Will CentriVap system be used for lyophilization as well as concentration?
