Quick, safe and efficient evaporation 

SpeedVac systems use the state-of-the-art centrifugation, vacuum and heat technologies for removing solvents and concentrating samples while maintaining sample integrity. A wide and diverse product range is able to provide solutions for a wide variety of solvent applications ranging from the traditional drying down of DNA preparations in water and methanol, to the more complex and aggressive applications presented by the combinatorical chemistry and drug discovery sectors of the pharmaceutical industry.

We also offer simple prepackaged Speedvac Vacuum Concentrator Modular Kits for popular applications and a wide array of SpeedVac rotors.

Features of SpeedVac Vacuum Concentrators

Focused on ease of use
 

Focused on ease of use
  • User interface allows use of 4 preset programs and 8 user defined programs to set heat, run time, ramp rate and vacuum level for efficient operation.
  • The heavy-duty universal rotor is optimized for efficient large-sample processing while accommodating various sample handling formats, such as microcentrifuge tubes, microplates, and 250mL flasks

 

Samples stay safe for reliable evaporation

Samples stay safe for reliable evaporation
  • Standard glass lid locks securely to help ensure safety for samples and users. Hands free operation when loading or unloading the rotor with the lid stay mechanism. An audible alarm alerts the user when the operation is finished.

Reliable data collection
 

Reliable data collection
  • Ability to download live run data from a USB port enhances data integrity.
