Safeguarding Samples from Potential Thermal Degradation
Genevac, market leader in solvent removal, has announced the latest version of its proprietary autostop when dry control software which allows it’s EZ-2, Rocket and HT-Series evaporators to automatically detect when the samples are dry and then shut it down - safeguarding valuable samples from potential thermal degradation.
Combined with Genevac's continuous running condensers, autostop when dry control software allows easy unattended operation offering the possibility of significant increases in productivity through use of overnight evaporation runs.
Until the introduction of autostop when dry control software - evaporators users had to constantly monitor or estimate the drying time for a given sample. Genevac autostop when dry control software overcomes this problem by using one of two methods to determine when dryness has been reached and then automatically shutting down the evaporator without further user intervention.
With Genevac evaporators the software detection of sample dryness is determined either by the rate of heat flow into the sample or by temperature convergence using pre-positioned probes in sample holder and sample. Either method gives significant time savings over traditional manual methods as well as freeing up operator time for other more productive tasks.
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.
