Oligo Manufacturer Standardizes On Ultravap for Sample Preparation

Ultravap™ Blowdown Station Porvair Sciences Ltd. has announced that a leading manufacturer of ready-made oligonucleotides, with bases in both North America and Europe, has standardized on their UltravapTM Blowdown Station for careful drying of their production samples.

Steve Knight - Sales & Marketing Manager at Porvair commented "This important life science customer has invested in 5 UltravapTM systems in the USA with 2 more on order and two to date installed in Europe".  He added "Controllable gentle dry down which does not heat or harm samples is important when preparing biological samples. For this customer looking to integrate a sample drying system into their production environment - the ability of the Ultravap to also automate dry down and store regularly-used protocols was critical".

Designed to quickly and safely remove solvents from 96 or 384-well plates, the UltravapTM Blowdown Station is a versatile tool proven to optimise microplate sample preparation productivity.  The UltravapTM achieves high sample throughput through advanced evaporator head technology and an innovative manifold design, which directly injects heated nitrogen into each individual well of the microplate simultaneously.  The system is proven to remove most popular chromatography solvents in just minutes. For heat sensitive and thermally labile samples the UltravapTM may be operated in a unique two-stage mode combining rapid initial dry-down with carefully controlled final solvent evaporation.

The UltravapTM has been designed to be simple to install, operate and maintain.  Installation just requires connection to a gas supply / cylinder and standard mains socket and you are ready to go. Safety of operation is ensured as the CE marked compact unit fits into all fume cupboards.
