Biotech Fluidics DEGASi In-line Degassers


Biotech Fluidics announced two new additions to their popular DEGASi® family of high-performance in-line degassers.

According to Biotech Fluidics, the DEGASi Plus Nano and DEGASi® Plus ultraNano address the challenge of nanofluidic systems by minimizing the hold-up volume and offering wide chemical compatibility.

Nanofluidic studies enable the analysis of the properties and transport phenomena of liquids in nanoscale, typically ranging from 1 nm to 100 nm. These techniques are also being used to synthesize novel nanomaterials. Notable applications for nanofluidic techniques include biomolecular research, energy conversion, medicine, and water desalination.

With an internal volume of only 25 µL, the DEGASi Plus Nano, according to the company, is optimized for degassing fluid flows in the range up to 100 uL/min. Biotech Fluidics also offer an Ultra version of this new degasser with a hold-up volume of just 6 uL, which they state is designed to handle low flow applications (up to 25 uL/min).

Both the Nano and Nano-Ultra degassers are based on Systec AF membrane, making them suitable for water-based media and most organic liquids (excluding alkanes and fluorinated solvents). The liquid flow path is metal-free, making these degassers fully biocompatible. The DEGASi Nano systems are fully RoHS and REACH compliant, the operating temperature of 4–60⁰C. Both degassers use the well-established and trouble free ZHCR Vacuum technology.
