Installation requires only connection to a gas supply and standard mains socket. With manual control of the needle depth, gas temperature, and flow rate, it allows fine control and quicker drying times than other standard methods.

Purpose designed for removing solvents from vials and standard ANSI/SLAS-format microplates, the MiniVap® offer quicker dry-down times than traditional methods such as vacuum oven. Typically, the MiniVap® takes less than six minutes to remove volatile organic solvents from your HPLC fractions collected in 24- or 96-well microplates.    

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

Porvair Sciences evaporators are designed to remove the traditional laboratory ‘bottleneck’ of solvent evaporation from microplates prior to analysis or reconstitution in storage buffer. These evaporators give significant throughput advantages to laboratories looking to optimize microplate sample preparation productivity. Faster than centrifugal evaporation, significant increases in sample throughput are achieved through advanced evaporator head technology and an innovative manifold design, which directly injects heated nitrogen into each individual well of the microplate simultaneously.
