Fast and Efficient Evaporator for Chromatography Solvents
7 Feb 2022
Designed to provide dry down of samples in microplates and glass tubes up to 150 mm in length - the Ultravap Mistral XT150 blowdown evaporator from Porvair Sciences offers a low maintenance, sample-safe alternative to using water bath-based evaporators.
Capable of operating at temperatures up to 80°C, the instrument can comfortably evaporate almost all common chromatography solvents including acetonitrile, dichloromethane, hexane, methanol and water. A choice of straight or spiral blowdown evaporator needles enables users to choose between faster dry down (spiral) or optimised final drying in V-well microplates (straight).
Operated via an intuitive colour touchscreen, the Mistral XT150 comes with clear safety side screens and integral solvent fume management. Installation of requires only connection to a gas supply and mains electricity. The compact CE marked unit fits into all fume cupboards.
The automation-ready instrument uses a sample shuttle proven to serve and retrieve long tubes or microplates from the deck of Perkin Elmer, Tecan, Hamilton, and Beckman robotic liquid handlers.
