Centrifugal vacuum concentrators use a combination of centrifugal force, vacuum, and heat to rapidly and gently evaporate multiple small samples to either a dry or a wet pellet state.
There are many different applications for centrifugal evaporation, including concentration of polynucleotides and protein samples, residue analysis, concentration of solvent/water mixtures, toxicology and forensics, combinatorial chemistry, and food/environment analytics. Because of the nature of the solvents used, a pump with high chemical resistance and good tolerance of condensates is recommended.
Considerations for selecting the optimal pump include:
- Sensitive vacuum control
- Oil-free operation with excellent chemical compatibility
- Ability to process wet vapours
