Automated Solvent Drying
The DryVap Concentrator automatically dries the solvent extract prior to concentration using the DryDisk Separation Membranes. This is a novel new technology providing a much more efficient means of drying solvents in organic extractions than sodium sulfate. Because it is a physical separation rather than a chemical process to remove residual water from organic solvent extracts, DryDisk Separation Membranes eliminate the problems inherent with chemical drying such as retention of water-soluble compounds, over-saturation, clogging, oven drying, messy waste removal, and inability to handle emulsions. The labor required to dry extracted samples using DryDisk Separation Membranes is significantly less than that of the multi-step chemical process. Faster sample turn-around times lower laboratory costs while increasing overall productivity. The non-contaminating, hydrophobic PTFE membrane will not interfere with the adsorption of analytes, increasing your range of analyte testing with complete, consistent recoveries.
