The RapidVap Vacuum Evaporation Systems are ideal for preparation of samples in a variety of applications including drug discovery, agrichemistry, mycology testing and environmental analysis. The systems use vacuum along with heat and vortex motion to help speed evaporation and provide an alternative to traditional centrifugal evaporation methods. These systems may be used with a broad range of aggressive chemicals. Heat is supplied by a dry block heating system that, unlike water baths, adds no potential source of contamination and requires no maintenance.
The RapidVap Vacuum Evaporation Systems accommodate twelve different, interchangeable accessory sample blocks holding sample volumes from just a few milliliters to as large as 450 milliliters. As many as 110 each 12 or 13 mm tubes may be loaded at once. Additional blocks accommodate various tube types including conical centrifuge tubes and scintillation vials.
