Sample concentrator FSC496D
Designed to be used with Techne’s 3 block Dri-Blocks® BH/65508 or BH/65512, the sample concentrator accelerates the concentration of large numbers of samples achieving in minutes what would traditionally take several hours. As the samples are heated gas is passed via the unique patented gas chamber through hypodermic needles on to the surface of the test solution. This technique is particularly useful in the preparation of samples for analytical techniques including drug screening, hormone assay, chromatographic analysis and scintillation counting.
The Sample Concentrators consist of a fully adjustable gas reservoir which mounts over a Dri-Block® heater with a temperature range of 25°C-200°C -the samples can then be heated to the required temperature to assist evaporation.
The gas chamber is suitable for use with most gases and may be adjusted to suit the level of liquid in the sample tubes which should not exceed 2psi
Block heaters, aluminium insert blocks and needles are not included with the sample concentrator and must be ordered separately.
Suitable needles are BH/65524 or for corrosive samples, PTFE coated needles BH/65528
Suitable micro plate blocks are BH/65584 and BH/65590, the gaps left once the block has been fitted should be filled with spacers BH/65570 to avoid sample damage and heat loss
