Productive, Sample Safe Solvent Removal...

Release Date: August 21, 2009

At the 2009 AOAC Annual Meeting & Exposition* - SP Industries Inc. will present its ground-breaking ROCKET™ Evaporator and its application in the areas of agricultural, food, drug, and environmental sciences. 

Fast, sample safe evaporative removal of large volumes of solvent is of considerable interest to many environmental analysis, medicinal chemistry, food and natural product laboratories. Traditional techniques used for these applications have many shortfalls. 

Visitors to Booth 105 will be able to see how revolutionary new technology in the ROCKET™ Evaporator enables it to dry or concentrate as many as six large volume flasks up to five times faster than conventional rotary evaporators. Incorporating patented Dri-Pure® technology the ROCKET Evaporator ensures high sample integrity by eliminating solvent bumping that can lead to cross contamination. Used in conjunction with SampleGenie™ technology the ROCKET Evaporator is also able to concentrate or dry large volume samples directly into a small vial, eliminating post evaporation reformatting steps which minimises sample loss and maximises laboratory workflow. 

The Rocket Evaporator sets a new benchmark for ease-of-use - simply highlight the desired evaporation method using the right hand knob, and press start. New methods can be uploaded via the USB key, and data downloaded in the same way. Offering true unattended operation capability the Rocket Evaporator requires no training, even a beginner can competently use the system in less than 5 minutes.
