Evaporators and Concentrators

Concentrators use a mixture of centrifugal pressure, vacuum, and heat to evaporate small samples, with the purpose of making a dry product or a wet pellet. Evaporation systems use mixtures of dry heat, vortex motion, or vacuum to achieve a similar outcome.

This equipment is used in many laboratories including organic chemistry, genetic and drug discovery labs. Applications range from protein extraction to DNA concentration to deproteinization.

Some factors to think about when buying a concentrator or evaporator are membrane pore size, sample volume and concentration factor.
