Genevac Evaporation Options & Accessories
To help you get the best from your investment, Genevac HT evaporators are designed to be as flexible as possible.
There are options and accessories available to suit most of your requirements, from the extensive range of sample holders, designed to provide maximum protection of samples and faster drying times to fully customised robotic systems based around our HT-4X and HT-12 Series II Systems.
Developed by BOC Edwards, with assistance from Genevac, and based on the "scroll" principle. The scroll pump takes it’s name from the design of the pump head, where a series of crescent shaped scrolls cut into an oscillating rotor are used to repeatedly compress and decompress the gas or vapour to be pumped.

A study carried out by Martyn Deal at GlaxoWellcome UK has proved the value of Genevac's unique Dri-Pure® anti-bumping system. Dri-Pure® was shown to prevent solvent bumping (ejection of superheated solvent and solute from a test tube or microtitre plate well) from occurring in all the samples tested.
Genevac offers a Data Logging & Remote Control software package to monitor and control the evaporation process.
Want to free up some fume hood space?
With increased throughput requirements, many modern medicinal chemistry labs are running out of bench and fume hood space. Equipment is often placed in the fume hood when the scientists would prefer to keep the space for manual reaction and purification work. Although Genevac designs their equipment to be ultra compact and fit into a fume hood where possible, we recognise the need for some of our customers to free up valuable fixed fume hood space.
When working with certain solvents, e.g. HPLC solvent, DMSO a fully dried result can be hard to achieve due to interactions with the dissolved sample - resulting in the formation of a gum or oil.
In response to customer demand Genevac have developed a Fast Lyophilisation, or process to resolve these problems for customers working with HPLC solvents.
Based on our existing HT series systems, custom modified for integration with your robotic system.
So far, we have supplied customised HT-4, HT-8 and HT-12 systems, each one individually tailored to suit our customers needs. However we now only provide the HT-4 & HT-12 for automated robotic systems.
Genevac evaporators are designed to combine rapid and safe evaporation with high capacity and a wide variety of sample formats. In order to optimise the evaporation performance achieved it is important to select the correct sample holder for your particular application.
Genevac samples holders are manufactured from solid aluminium to very precise specifications and are mass balanced to ensure smooth running of the evaporator.

Drying Large Volumes Directly into Vials
There are many situations where a large volume needs to be dried or concentrated and placed into a small vial. On some occasions a number of large volumes need to be dried and placed into one vial e.g. when combining HPLC purification fractions. Typically many stages are needed to achieve this seemingly simple end result, including:
