TurboVap® LV evaporation system is an automated high speed, low volume sample concentrator. It is an efficient alternative to the inconvenient set-up, constant monitoring and long evaporation times that are characteristic of conventional techniques. With the TurboVap LV system, you simply “load and leave”. A water bath gives an even temperature and gas flow is delivered over a set time period. Turn on 1 to 5 manifolds depending on the number of samples and the timer will alert you when your samples are ready.
The microprocessor-control provides monitoring of the timed operation and water bath temperature. It also provides automatic gas shutoff and operational diagnostics.
TurboVap® LV is commonly used for evaporation of solvents following solid phase extraction clean-up of drug samples or pesticide extracts. It is ideal for sample volumes of 1 mL to 30 mL that need to be evaporated in GC vials, microcentrifuge tubes, conical bottom tubes or test tubes. It offers a high throughput solution with 50 sample positions using the standard range of Biotage racks.
TurboVap® II increases the capacity and sample throughput in laboratories, eliminates concentration bottlenecks and maintains quality and lower costs. This instrument has 6 sample positions and enables the user to evaporate to solid state or concentrate into a fixed end-point volume. The small footprint of TurboVap® II makes it the ideal choice in today’s laboratories. It takes up only a fraction of the bench space used by conventional rotary evaporators and can even be used outside a fume cupboard by using the integral vent tube.
Units may be configured to accommodate either 50 mL or 200 mL glassware with either 0.5 mL or 1.0 mL endpoint stems. TurboVap® II Evaporation System efficiently concentrates samples prior to analysis by LC/MS or other analytical instruments. Optical sensors automatically stop gas flow when evaporation has reached its end-point, thereby eliminating the risk of drying and loss of volatile compounds. TurboVap II is suitable for evaporation of large volumes after liquid-liquid extractions. TurboVap II is available in a Dionex ASE compatible setup which accommodate the use of six 40 mL stemmed and graduated Dionex ASE tubes. Upgrade kits are also available for converting your old TurboVap II.
TurboVap® 500 can evaporate volumes up to 500 mL down to complete dryness with flat bottomed vessels or to a selectable endpoint at 0.5 or 1 mL. A water bath is used to maintain stable temperature, while the cooled glassware condenser collects the solvent. The condenser technology allows for efficient and cost effective collection of hazardous waste. It also prevents losses of samples and allows for analysis to detect cross-contamination issues.
The “helical flow” of air is created by a motor-driven fan. The solvent vapors rise and enter the condenser, condense on the side walls, then run out the drain into a suitable waste or reclamation container. The two position unit accommodates 500 mL vessels with either 0.5 mL or 1.0 mL endpoint stems. Biotage delivers the most efficient and rapid solvent evaporation systems for chemistry laboratories around the world.
