Centrifuge Vacuum Concentrators – Sharp Vac

Centrifuge vacuum concentrators quickly and reproducibly concentrate peptide solutions, biological samples, chromatography fractions and small molecule libraries.  The Sharp Vac™ is a compact instrument excellent for applications requiring rapid concentration of large numbers of samples.  The centrifugal action prevents samples from bumping and foaming.  Therefore, sample recovery is complete with no loss due to bumping or cross contamination.

Sharp Vac™ Centrifuge Vacuum Concentrators have built-in heating that can be adjusted from +5 degrees to +80 degrees for optimal evaporation. Sharp Vac™ vacuum concentrators also feature a programmable timer function for automatic start/stop operation, vacuum measurement down to 10-3 mbar for monitoring leaks and sample dryness, and built in vacuum valve and safety breaker for safer running.

Sharp Vac™ Centrifuge Vacuum Concentrators have a stainless steel interior for long life.  For corrosive samples containing trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) or hydrochloric acid (HCl), an optional Teflon coating is available.

A variety of interchangeable rotors which accommodate vials, test tubes, conical bottom tubes, Eppendorf tube and titer plates are available.

Sharp Vac™ 12 Centrifuge Vacuum Concentrator utilizes a 12 inch rotor.  Sharp Vac™ 16 Centrifuge Vacuum Concentrator utilizes 16 inch rotors.  The rotors are ordered separately.
