Easy Concentration of Large Sample Volumes
SampleGenie 3 is the latest version of Genevac’s unique SampleGenie technology.
SampleGenie 3 technology used in conjunction with the Genevac ROCKET Evaporator enables large sample volumes to be dried directly into vials, eliminating a number of time consuming sample handling steps and the attendant risk of errors. The new third generation SampleGenie enhances the exceptional capabilities of this unique sample concentration methodology through improved ease of use, enhanced evaporation performance and reduced operational costs.
Traditionally protocols for concentration of chromatographic fractions has involved drying multiple fractions in an evaporator, re-suspending pooled fractions into a single vial and then re-drying before storage and analysis. Even with modern centrifugal evaporators such processes typically take 2-3 days to complete. The development of SampleGenie™ technology has been shown to enable samples in Genevac evaporators to be concentrated, without loss of volatile components, directly into a single GC or HPLC vial eliminating the need for reformatting of samples after drying. This, and the automation offered by Genevac evaporators simplifies the protocol to a single overnight drying step before storage and analysis. Not only does SampleGenie remove time consuming manual steps - it lowers labour costs and improves data reliability.
Genevac, part of SP Scientific, was founded in 1990. Today the company employs around 85 people, with manufacturing, R&D and marketing headquartered in Ipswich, UK. Genevac today offers a comprehensive portfolio of evaporators to suit almost any solvent removal application, purchasing budget or productivity requirement.
