"Arctic Blast" Yields Better Lyophilisation Results
Benefiting from a state-of-the-art -75°C condenser - the Series 3 HT Evaporator from Genevac sets a new benchmark for enhanced evaporation and lyophilisation results.
Drying HPLC purification fractions, such as water and acetonitrile, is a routine yet essential task in many pharmaceutical laboratories. Typically labs require HPLC fractions to be dried to a powder form, such that samples can be accurately weighed, easily sub-sampled and re-dissolved. To provide a rapid, high-throughput alternative to freeze drying of such samples - Genevac developed its proprietary fast lyophilisation (LyoSpeed™) methodology for use on their HT Series Evaporators. While the LyoSpeed™ has traditionally worked well for hydrophilic samples - difficulties may arise where the sample do not readily dissolve in only water.
The Series 3 HT Evaporator features an integral -75°C condenser as standard. Operating at higher power than any other commercially available condenser, users of LyoSpeed™ on Series 3 HT Evaporators have reported that a greater percentage of samples yield dry powders than they have previously been able to achieve.
Genevac, part of SP Scientific and located in Ipswich, UK, offers a comprehensive portfolio of evaporators to suit almost any solvent removal application, purchasing budget or productivity requirement. SP Scientific is a leading manufacturer of centrifugal evaporators and concentrators, freeze drying / lyophilisation, temperature control/thermal management, glassware washers, controlled environments, vial washing and tray loading machines. The company sells its products under well-known brands including Genevac, VirTis, Hull, FTS Systems, Hotpack and the recently acquired PennTech. SP Scientific has ISO 9001:2008 registered production facilities in the Europe and USA.
