Genevac EZ-2 evaporator with Reduce Odour function

Thursday, 05 June, 2014 | Supplied by: Scitek Australia Pty Ltd



Many solvent evaporators are routinely sited inside fume extraction hoods because residual solvent vapour, remaining in the chamber at the end of a run, can expose the operator to potentially harmful odours when the system is opened. Genevac announces an odour reduction function for its EZ-2 evaporator which enables it to be sited on the open bench.

The Reduce Odour function automatically adds a repeated vent and vacuum cycle to the end of a method, which purges the evaporation chamber of residual solvent vapours. Three settings are available to optimise vapour removal without releasing trapped solvent from the cold trap.

The evaporator has been designed for productive, sample-safe solvent removal. The compact sample concentrator is said to combine good performance, ease of use and compatibility with all commonly used solvents and acids. The product easily integrates with laboratory workflow, its smart evaporator software with auto-stop providing walk-away automation so that anyone can use it with confidence.

Featuring up to 10 onboard solvent-specific evaporation programs, the evaporator automatically controls vacuum and temperature to enable rapid evaporation of a wide range of solvents while preventing bumping and cross-contamination. Users may optimise their method for specific applications, such as solvent keep and to prevent overdrying when handling volatile analytes. Options are also available to enable routine, safe removal of potentially explosive solvents such as diethyl ether or pentane and removal of acids including concentrated hydrochloric acid.
