Next generation benchtop evaporator

Genevac Ltd., world leader in solvent removal technologies, has announced the launch of a new second-generation version of its popular EZ-2 centrifugal evaporator.

The new EZ-2 personal evaporator further extends the benchmark performance, operational versatility and ease of use of its market-leading predecessor. Incorporating state-of-the-art technology the EZ-2 is able to evaporate solvents in typically half the time of traditional evaporator designs. Further time savings are made as users can see solvents as they collect in the trap and emptying the collection vessel is simple, requiring no defrosting.

Running the EZ-2 is as simple as 1,2,3. Just load your samples, select maximum safe temperature for samples, select solvent type and hit start. Offering true unattended operation capability the EZ-2 requires no user training, even a beginner can competently use the system within 5 minutes.

The EZ-2 has been designed to concentrate or completely dry samples. The system will accommodate a wide selection of sample holders enabling evaporation from most common sample container formats including round-bottom flasks up to 500ml, tubes up to 160mm long, custom reaction blocks and shallow or deep-well microplates.

To meet the need of the many life science companies switching their compound generation programmes from serial chemistry to parallel synthesis, the EZ-2 is also able to take tubes, flasks and vials directly from the synthesis process, eliminating a manual handling step, increasing recoveries and removing the chance of cross contamination.

Requiring no peripherals for operation the compact EZ-2 fits neatly onto a laboratory bench or into a fume hood. All key components on the robust and reliable system are user serviceable further lowering the cost of ownership.
