GeneVac, Inc. and Dionex Sign Worldwide Distribution Agreement

Published: May 03, 2011

3rd MAY 2011 -- Genevac Ltd (Ipswich, UK), the solvent evaporation business of SP Industries Inc (Warminster, PA) has entered into an OEM agreement with ion chromatography (IC) specialist Dionex Corp (Sunnyvale, CA), which sees the Genevac Rocket™ high speed evaporator being sold as part of Dionex accelerated solvent extraction (ASE®) instruments.

The Rocket high speed evaporator enables rapid concentration or evaporation of up to six 400ml flasks or up to 18 Dionex ASE® vials simultaneously. In addition using Genevac's proprietary SampleGenie™ technology in conjunction with the Rocket evaporator enables samples to be concentrated directly into an autosampler or storage vial, eliminating the need for manual sample transfer. To automate transfers from ASE® vials the new Genevac Flip-Flop™ system can be used. The elimination of manual transfer steps and the automation of the evaporation / concentration process delivers improve laboratory workflow, increases reproducibility of results and maximises sample recovery.

They bring to the agreement an unrivalled reputation within the chromatography and sample preparation market and proven global reach via their sales teams. We believe that this agreement will help enhance the product offerings and reputations of both companies and look forward to working with Dionex."
