ROCKET Evaporator accelerates chiral separation workflows
Available from Genevac Ltd
Able to simultaneously dry or concentrate as many as six large volume flasks* - five times faster than conventional rotary evaporators - the Genevac Rocket™ Evaporator is a powerful tool for accelerating traditionally difficult and time consuming chiral separation workflows.
In recent years there has been considerable interest in the synthesis and separation of enantiomers of organic compounds especially because of their importance in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Frequently the methods used for the separations, for monitoring the progress of an asymmetric synthesis or optical purity are chromatographic. In preparative syntheses the chiral analytes of interest are typically separated in large volumes of solvent. Often concentration or drying of these samples using a rotary evaporator is both time consuming and may risk thermal degradation of valuable separated chiral products.
Benefiting from a new patented low temperature, low pressure steam heating technology developed by Genevac – the Rocket Evaporator is uniquely able to achieve the dual goals of very fast evaporation with very precise temperature control thereby accelerating the safe production of chiral separation samples.
Offering true unattended operation capability the Rocket Evaporator requires no training, even a beginner can competently use the system in less than 5 minutes.
