High Vacuum Benchtop Solvent Evaporator
The EZ-2 Elite Centrifugal Evaporator from Genevac has been designed to provide unmatched final drying of stubborn samples and fast lyophilisation of HPLC fractions
Benefiting from a high performance scroll pump, that delivers deep vacuum, the EZ-2 Elite is able to routinely remove even very high boiling solvents such as DMSO and NMP. In addition internal heating of vapour duct and system components ensures that such challenging solvents only collect in the SpeedTrap™ condensor, and not anywhere else.
The SpeedTrap condenser on the EZ-2 Elite comes the benefit of automatic defrost and drain technology. The EZ-2 controls the SpeedTrap and the Elite solvent collection vessel offering mid-method defrosting and draining. Using the EZ-2 Elite SpeedTrap - the Genevac LyoSpeed™ method of fast lyophilisation of HPLC fractions is possible on an EZ-2 Evaporator.
The EZ-2 Elite is able to concentrate or completely dry samples. The system is compatible with a wide selection of sample holders enabling evaporation from most common sample container formats including round-bottom flasks up to 500ml, tubes up to 160mm long, custom reaction blocks as well as shallow and deep-well microplates. To meet the need of the many life science companies switching their compound generation programmes from serial chemistry to parallel synthesis, the EZ-2 Elite is also able to take tubes, flasks and vials directly from the synthesis process, eliminating a manual handling step, increasing recoveries and removing the chance of cross contamination.
Running the EZ-2 Elite is highly intuitive. Just load your samples, select maximum safe temperature for samples, select solvent type and hit start. Offering true unattended operation capability the EZ-2 Elite requires no user training, even a beginner can competently use the system within 5 minutes.
