Genevac, world leader in evaporation and freeze drying technologies, has announced a new online video demonstrating the ease of use and market-leading operational versatility offered by its RocketTM Evaporator.
Presented as a Flash media presentation (www.genevac.com/movie/rocket/) the new video includes an informative introduction to the revolutionary evaporation technology used by the Rocket. Following this the viewer is seamlessly guided through the system operation - from the wide range of compatible sample holders for drying and concentration, loading samples, ease of operation, stored method programming through to proprietary Genevac innovations that ensure sample integrity.
Benefiting from a patented low temperature, low pressure steam heating technology - the Rocket Evaporator is able to uniquely achieve the dual goals of very fast evaporation with very precise temperature control thereby accelerating the safe concentration or drying of samples. Developed in response to user requests for an evaporator that could quickly process larger volumes of solvent in parallel and without supervision, the Rocket Evaporator is designed to dry or concentrate six flasks, each containing up to 450ml of solvent. For scientists looking to concentrate extracted samples prior to analysis - the new Puck sampling accessory extends the sampling versatility of a Rocket Evaporator to simultaneously accommodate up to eighteen 60ml Accelerated Solvent Extractor (ASE®) tubes. Offering true unattended operation capability the Rocket Evaporator requires no training, even a beginner can competently use the system in less than 5 minutes. A 2-stage cold trap built into the Rocket Evaporator provides very high levels of solvent recovery, even with volatile organic solvents. In addition Genevac's patented Dri-Pure® technology prevents solvent bumping and cross contamination inherent with rotary evaporator and other vacuum evaporation systems. Requiring no peripherals for operation the compact Rocket Evaporator fits neatly onto a laboratory bench or into a fume hood. All key components on the robust and reliable system are user serviceable ensuring a low the cost of ownership.
Genevac, an SP Industries company, 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.
