Centrifugal Vacuum Concentrators

CentriVap Centrifugal Vacuum Concentrators use a combination of centrifugal force, vacuum and heat to speed laboratory evaporation of multiple small samples. They offer maximum throughput required by biology, microbiology, biochemistry, pharmaceutical research and analytical chemistry laboratories. These laboratory evaporators can process as many as 148 samples at once. Sample sizes range from a few microliters up to 25 milliliters. The accessory Microtiter Plate Rotor holds four standard or two deep well plates. 

CentriVap Centrifugal Vacuum Concentrators are available as a compact benchtop component or as a laboratory “system” combined with the CentriVap Cold Trap.

The CentriVap Cold Trap helps protect the accessory vacuum pump from the corrosive effects of vapors and fumes as they evaporate from the samples. The CentriVap Ultra Low Cold Trap provides protection from low freezing point solvents. The CentriVap Mobile System combines a concentrator and cold trap into a single mobile console.
