GeneVac, Inc. Efficient Pre-Concentration Of Protein Solutions

Published: Dec 16, 2009

For laboratories looking to pre-concentrate protein solutions prior to separation (size exclusion chromatography, electrophoresis) or analysis (x-ray crystallography) the miVac sample concentrator from Genevac provides a highly efficient, cost effective alternative to traditional membrane centrifugation techniques.

Using membrane centrifugation valuable sample is often lost due to protein binding to the membrane. By comparison using a miVac sample concentrator ensures complete sample recovery even when taking proteins to very high concentrations. For protein laboratories that handle large numbers of protein samples - the miVac also offers the benefit of greatly reduced spending on consumables.

The miVac range has been designed to meet the requirements for speedy, yet careful biological sample concentration. Each miVac sample concentrator is designed to provide very high performance, precise temperature control and ease of use - all within a small benchtop footprint. miVac sample concentrators are capable of removing water and organic solvents from a variety of sample formats including tubes, microplates, and vials. Built-in stored methods for drying aqueous and alcohol-based samples improve performance and optimise concentration time.
