The Ultravap blowdown station from Porvair Sciences is designed to quickly and safely remove solvents from 96- or 384-well plates, optimising microplate sample preparation productivity.

The Ultravap is said to achieve high sample throughput through advanced evaporator head technology and a manifold design, which directly injects heated nitrogen into each individual well of the microplate simultaneously.

The system is proven to remove most popular chromatography solvents in minutes.

For heat-sensitive and thermally labile samples the Ultravap may be operated in a two-stage mode combining rapid initial dry-down with carefully controlled final solvent evaporation.

The Ultravap has been designed to be simple to install, operate and maintain.

Installation simply requires connection to a gas supply/cylinder and standard mains socket.

Safety of operation is ensured as the CE-marked compact unit fits unto all fume cupboards.

Typical application areas that will benefit from the Ultravap include drug metabolism, toxicology, pharmacokinetics and bio-analysis laboratories, where chromatography or solid phase extraction is used to help isolate and analyse compounds from biological matrices.

Additionally, lead discovery, medicinal chemistry and combinatorial chemistry labs looking to concentrate target compound samples, prior to reconstitution in another solvent, can also enhance productivity using the Ultravap.

To enable use by all laboratory staff the Ultravap includes a stored methods facility.

Different drying programme can be retained in the memory eliminating the need to set-up the system when changing from one method to another.
