Automated Direct-to-Vial Concentration and Evaporation
The SuperVap system is an automated, standalone, direct-to-vial concentrator that replaces older techniques such as KD, nitrogen blow down and water baths. By automating what were once manual evaporation and concentration processes, the SuperVap concentration system accelerates your sample throughput, lowers labor costs, and improves the consistency of your results by eliminating the variability inherent in manual sample prep procedures.
The SuperVap concentrator sets new a standard for consistency, speed, and reliability of results for an automated sample evaporation and concentration system. It is ideal for the analysis of pesticides, herbicides, Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), PCBs, PAHs, pharmaceutical byproducts, and personal care byproducts as well as many other applications. The programmable SuperVap concentrator is a dry, waterless concentrator that can preheat as well as ramp up to final temperature. It automatically senses when the extract is being delivered to each vessel, starts the blow down and then shuts off the nitrogen when final volume is achieved. The concentrated samples are then automatically transferred directly to a vial, eliminating the errors that occur during manual transfer.
The SuperVap concentration system uses a touch screen display for programming, storing, and running methods. Real-time plotting of temperature readings are displayed throughout the process. Simply touch a point on the plot and instantly see the temperature of that point.
The SuperVap system performs the entire evaporation and concentration process, automatically, delivering consistent, reproducibly high recoveries for all analytes. Unattended operation of the sample prep process saves time, reduces labor costs, glassware and solvents.
High Recovery of All Analytes
The SuperVap system provides direct-to-vial concentration with automatic endpoint detection and Nitrogen shut off for each vessel
Uses No Water
Uses a robust waterless, dry bath with no electronics submerged in water. It easily and inexpensively captures solvents.
Concentrates up to 6 Samples
Sample Sizes up to 220 mL.
An integrated HEPA/Carbon filter eliminates outside contamination.
Economically priced vessels in 500 µL, 1 mL and direct-to-vial.
Automatic endpoint detection, nitrogen shutoff, and alarm for each vessel. Programmable heat ramp and nitrogen settings for precise control of the concentration and evaporation process.
Every method and run is documented and stored on the SuperVap system for easy retrieval for electronic documentation. A temperature log for each run is also saved and may be downloaded to a PC via a USB port.
Stand Alone or Integrated
The SuperVap concentrator can be easily integrated into existing FMS sample preparation systems. Integration allows for PC-based control and automatic solvent exchange.
