Concentrate or dry large-volume samples rapidly and in parallel using the automated Thermo Scientific™ Rocket Synergy™ Evaporator System. Up to 6x large-volume 450mL flasks or 18x 60mL Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ASE™ vials can be simultaneously processed without user intervention. Minimize cross-contamination and sample loss by directly concentrating your samples into an autosampler vial. This eco-friendly system ensures high solvent recoveries even with volatile organic solvents.
The Rocket Synergy Evaporator is equipped with the advanced performance features that our users expect, such as automated endpoint detection, effective bumping protection, accurate temperature regulation, and easy-to-use controls. A two-stage cold trap is built into the Rocket Synergy Evaporator, providing high levels of solvent recovery, even with volatile organic solvents. The cold trap auto-drains is under the control of the evaporator to ensure that high solvent recovery is maintained, no matter what mix of solvents is being used.
Innovative Sample Preparation Solutions to Optimize Laboratory Workflow
Dionex™ ASE™ Accelerated Solvent Extractor system was introduced and substantially reduced the time but did not address clean up or evaporation. More recently, we introduced the Dionex ASE system with In-Cell Cleanup and Rocket Synergy Evaporator to address the entire sample preparation workflow and reduce the total time to six hours per sample batch.
The combination of the Dionex ASE system with In-Cell Cleanup and the Rocket Synergy Evaporator provides a total sample preparation solution for the analytical laboratory. The combination of these two techniques entirely eliminates both the cleanup step and manual sample transfer. The effect of this combination on laboratory productivity is profound and ensures highly accurate and reproducible sample preparation.
The controls of the Rocket Synergy Evaporator are easy to use: highlight the desired evaporation or concentration method using the right-hand knob, and start. The left-hand knob activates the (optional) on-board strobe. Rotating the strobe knob adjusts the strobe frequency and allows each of the six positions to be viewed separately in real-time.
The software controlling the evaporation process can be optimized for each customer application and new methods created to enhance performance, usually in partnership with your local Thermo Fisher Scientific representative. New methods are supplied by email and uploaded using a USB key. Data is downloaded in the same way.
