Yes, with the appropriate vacuum settings. For better efficiency an insulation kit is available for the Syncore® racks with 24 and 96 positions. For best results, it is recommended to use the insulation kit and the Vacuum Pump V-300 in combination with the Interface I-300/ I-300 Pro.
Yes, it is possible to concentrate multiple samples to a residual volume. The Syncore® Analyst is a parallel work-up product, using three interchangeable racks, to concentrate up to 12 samples down to a pre-defined residual volume, ranging from 0.3 mL, 1mL to 3 mL per sample. The residual volume is collected in a water-cooled appendix at the bottom of the sample vessel. This unique design allows evaporation of heat-sensitive compounds under mild conditions. All relevant parts of the Syncore® Analyst are chemically resistant and free of contaminants.
Yes, however, for compounds which are high sensitivity against oxygen, water or other environmental factors it is recommended to evaporate the samples directly.
Yes, all relevant parts are chemically inert for a broad range of reagents.
Yes, high recovery rate can be achieved. In most analytical applications high recovery rates are essential for reliable investigations. The Flushback module for the rack R-6 and R-12 even improves the recovery rate significantly by preventing valuable sample adhering to the glass walls during the evaporation process. In addition, the evaporation process is completely observable due to the innovative crystal rack.
Conventional solid phase extraction, an essential step in many analytical procedures, includes a number of laborious steps. With the help of the modified parallel evaporator, Syncore® Analyst, all essential work-up steps including evaporation of the elutes are achieved without any sample handling between the individual steps. The key feature is a three-way stopcock which allows separating the liquid passed through a SPE cartridge into either a waste vessel or a collecting vessel. The eluate of the collecting vessel is then evaporated to dryness or a pre-defined residual volume without any sample handling between the SPE work-up stage and evaporation stage.
