Dionex has partnered with Genevac to reduce solvent use in sample preparation. The result is the release of Genevac’s Rocket evaporator, which the companies’ report can perform unattended evaporation and concentration of up to six 450 mL flasks or 18 Dionex ASE tubes in parallel. It is claimed that the patented two-stage cold trap built into the evaporator provides high levels of solvent recovery and fast evaporation, even for the most volatile organic solvents.

Concentration and evaporation is an important step in achieving accurate analytical results with sample extracts. It is also labour intensive. The new evaporator automates this process. It is also reported to help minimize solvent usage, an important consideration for any laboratory seeking to reduce their impact on the environment and save money.

Genevac is a subsidiary of SP Scientific, a manufacturer of specialty equipment for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, industrial, academic and OEM applications. Genevac focuses on evaporation science and engineering.
