How to Avoid Residual Solvent When Drying HPLC Fractions

Driven by the requirement for completely dry samples, pharmaceutical compound handling groups are increasingly using SP Scientific’s Genevac LyoSpeed™, a hybrid process combining conventional centrifugal evaporation and lyophilization, as their preferred method for drying HPLC reverse-phase solvent fractions.

20190213_2Using LyoSpeed™ technology on Genevac EZ-2 Elite and Series 3 HT evaporators, HPLC fractions can be automatically concentrated to a few milliliters, then frozen and rapidly lyophilized to produce a diffuse dry powder, which can easily be re-dissolved or weighed out.

Traditional concentration of reverse-phase HPLC fractions to dryness in a Genevac evaporator is a fast and safe process. However, for certain compounds a fully dried result can be hard to achieve due to compound interactions with water, resulting in formation of a gum or oil. Such samples, which are not completely dry, are of little use in biological assays since accurate weights cannot be obtained.

The application of LyoSpeed™ technology produces, with most samples, a dry powder rather than the traditional thin film, making downstream processing far easier since compounds can be more easily removed from the evaporation vessel. The resultant dry powder is not excessively fluffy as would be obtained from conventional freeze-drying. This avoids the problems associated with static formation, particularly when trying to weigh out such compounds, and also helps prevent the possibility of airborne contamination, especially important if the compound happens to be harmful or even toxic.

Produced in Ipswich, UK, SP Scientific offers a comprehensive portfolio of Genevac evaporators and concentrators 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 / lyophilization, 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 PennTech. SP Scientific has ISO 9001:2015 registered production facilities in Europe and USA.
