Working with natural products to derive potential pharmaceutical drug candidates or to identify new flavours and fragrances has a reputation of being difficult, with the traditional bottleneck in the pipeline being the drying of solvent extracted samples. Natural product researchers have historically used rotary evaporators to remove solvent from the extract - a tedious process that sometimes can take days per sample.

Genevac’s Rocket Synergy automated evaporator system is said to be replacing the rotary evaporator as a tool for rapid and sample-safe evaporation of natural product extracts. The design of the product, used in conjunction with Genevac SampleGenie technology, enables researchers to dry down samples in just 1-2 h under low-vacuum and low-temperature conditions, which affect the integrity of the sample.

The system is able to dry or concentrate up to six flasks, each containing a maximum of 450 mL of solvent, or 18 ASE vials, with no user intervention or attention. To extend operational versatility, the Rocket Synergy flask rotor may be quickly removed and replaced with a stainless steel vessel, allowing unattended automated batch processing of up to 5 L per run.

A single Rocket Synergy evaporator is capable of replacing several rotary evaporators, saving bench space and improving the user’s productivity.
