Porvair Sciences Ultravap Mistral


Ultravap Mistral

It is our most sophisticated automation-friendly model yet, giving significant throughput advantages to laboratories looking to optimise microplate sample preparation. Faster than centrifugal evaporation for single plates, significant increases in sample throughput are achieved through advanced evaporator head technology and an innovative manifold design, which directly injects heated nitrogen into each individual well of the microplate simultaneously. Installation requires only connection to a gas supply and mains electricity. Safety of operation is ensured as this CE-marked compact unit fits into all fume cupboards and boasts full integral fume management within the unit.       
The UltraVap Mistral may be operated with a supply of clean, dry compressed air in place of nitrogen, if the chemistry allows. An in-line gas filter must be used in this case. The new Ultravap Mistral is the latest fully robotcompatible nitrogen blow-down evaporator, suitable for integration adjacent to several leading laboratory liquid handling robots. Designed with the demands of linear robots very much in mind, the Ultravap Mistral offers a plate shuttle which can serve and retrieve plates from the deck of Perkin Elmer, Tecan, Hamilton and Beckman liquid handlers. The colour touch-screen controlled dry down station accepts 24-, 48-, 96- or 384-well plates and comes complete with clear safety side screens and integral fume management leading to a 4 inch duct adaptor.
