The TurboVap II Concentration Workstation is a microprocessor- controlled concentrator that provides automated sample evaporation, unattended operation, convenience, and speed. The concentrator uses a patented gas vortex shearing action to maintain high evaporation rates under mild thermal conditions regardless of sample height in the tubes.
The evaporator uses a patented “gas vortex shearing action” that maintains high evaporation rates regardless of sample height in thetubes. A helical flow of air is created by the stream of gas directed into each sample tube. The helical flow sets up a vortexing action that provides for sample homogeneity and continuous rinsing of the tube wall. The vapor-laden gas exits via an unobstructed path up the center portion of the tubes and is removed by an exhaust fan to the exhaust port in the back of the unit.
Optical sensors in the water bath enable the TurboVap II to automatically stop the concentration when the sample level in the tube passes below the optical sensor. The final volume of the
concentration, either 0.5 mL or 0.75 mL, depends on the size of the sample tube being used.
The optical sensor tracks any slow changes in the optical density of the sample to assure that darkening or brightening samples do not stop the concentration prematurely. Once the sample passes below the optical sensor and remains below the sensor for a few seconds, the TurboVap II stops the concentration or starts the timer to concentrate for additional time.
The stem size of the concentrator tubes determines the final volume when using the sensor endpoint. Tubes with a 0.5 mL stem concentrate to 0.5 mL; tubes with a 1.0 mL stem concentrate to 0.75 mL and have a calibrated mark on the tube for you to reconstitute to 1.0 mL.
