The new VACUSIP from INTEGRA is an out-of-box vacuum aspiration solution for the wide array of liquid waste disposal tasks carried out at the laboratory bench.
Occupying a small bench top footprint - the VACUSIP makes disposal of liquid waste both safe and convenient. The VACUSIP provides an optimized solution for applications including the aspiration of small volumes of liquid, such as supernatants after centrifugation steps, removal of washing solutions and multi-channel removal of sample from multi-well microplates.
The VACUSIP features a reliable low noise pump and rechargeable battery enabling it to operate completely independently from an external vacuum source and power supply. This portable flexibility allows you to simply relocate your VACUSIP anytime to the point of need. To optimize battery run-time, the pump automatically switches on and off according to the vacuum needed for an aspiration task.
The unique VACUSIP hand operator enables precise fine regulation of the liquid aspiration flow. A wide range of adapters are available for the hand operator enabling the VACUSIP to handle almost any liquid waste disposal task. A hydrophobic filter protects the unit from contamination and liquid entry.
All components coming in contact with liquids can be autoclaved. Exchanging a full collection bottle is safe and easy, making VACUSIP the system of choice for the convenient removal and disposal of liquid waste.
