miVac Centrifugal ConcentratorsSource: Genevac Inc.
miVac from Genevac is a range of centrifugal concentrators capable of removing water and organic solvents from a variety of sample formats including tubes, microplates and vials. miVac can also be used to freeze dry aqueous samples. There are three concentrators, three pumps and a novel refrigerated trap in the miVac range. miVac concentrators feature built-in special methods for working with alcohols, water and water mixtures to improve performance and optimize concentration times.
miVac systems are suitable for use with a wide range of solvents, from volatile organic types through to water and many medium boiling point solvents. There is a choice of medium or high vacuum pump and a dedicated DNA system with built-in pump. Rotors are chosen according to the type of sample format in use and can include both deep and shallow well microplates, glass vials and tubes. miVac concentrators are extremely quiet when in use and typical results with water show that miVac systems are up to 40% faster than comparable machines, due to the very high displacement pumps.
