Labconco Refrigerated CentriVap Vacuum Concentrator

The Refrigerated CentriVap Centrifugal Concentrator is designed to rapidly concentrate multiple small heat-sensitive samples, such as RNA and proteins, using centrifugal force, vacuum and controlled temperature. This exclusive concentrator combines a refrigeration system that cools to -4ºC with a heater that warms to 100ºC to achieve the user’s desired set point temperatures.

Features

  • Microprocessor-controlled centrifugal motion up to 1725 RPM eliminates bumping and foaming common when applying vacuum during evaporation and maximizes recovery of trace solutes.
  • Quick-Stop™ System. Once run time has expired or the RUN/STOP button is pressed, within seconds the vacuum pump stops, the valve opens to bleed air into the chamber, and the rotor stops.
  • Automatic vacuum release valve prevents loss of sample by releasing the vacuum before the rotor stops and during power failures.
  • Lid latch with safety sensor locks the lid in place when the rotor is turning and prevents start up when the lid is open.
  • Built-in vacuum delay prevents bumping by allowing the rotor to achieve speed before applying vacuum.
  • Corrosion-resistant sample chamber accommodates accessory rotors for a wide variety of sample tubes.
  • Large phenol-free lid seal ensures good vacuum without potential for phenol contamination.
  • Microprocessor-controlled 300-watt heater speeds evaporation by supplying a controlled amount of heat from OFF up to a maximum of 100° C in one degree increments.
  • Three Quick-Start™ Buttons store one user-set program each.
  • Easy-to-read LCD display prompts the user to set program parameters and displays program number, actual and set point temperatures, heat time remaining, run time remaining, and if Heat Boost™ is activated.
  • Heat and run times are set separately, each from 1 to 999 minutes, so that heat may be programmed to shut down sooner than the run to protect heat sensitive samples from excessive heat exposure after the solvent has evaporated.
  • PREHEAT button activates the heater to begin elevating to set point temperature.
  • Memory stores 9 user-set programs with parameters of temperature, heat time and run time.
  • Audible alarm signals completion of set point run time.
  • Electrical receptacle allows connection of accessory vacuum pump so that the pump may be activated from control panel.
  • ETL listed (115 volt models)
  • CE (European Community) conformity (230 volt models)
  • Full one year warranty is provided against defects in materials and workmanship.
