Porvair Sciences range of solvent evaporators transform the way you handle samples and streamline sample preparation processes. The evaporators safely and efficiently remove organic solvents to allow re-constitution in a more suitable solvent, or to concentrate samples before analysis to improve sensitivity. Say goodbye to time-consuming and error-prone evaporation techniques, and say hello to the Ultravap Minivap, Ultravap Gemini, Ultravap Levante, and Ultravap Mistral – your ultimate laboratory companions.

Ultravap MiniVap: A Compact Powerhouse

The Ultravap Minivap solvent evaporator is the perfect choice for when low numbers of individual plates or vials need drying. The user-friendly system is designed for high-speed evaporation with faster drying times compared to vacuum oven drying. The manual controls allow for easy adjustment of the needle depth, gas temperature, and flow rate to fine-tune the drying method.

  • Rapid and efficient sample evaporation

  • Easy-to-use with manual controls

  • Compact design fits into standard fume hoods

  • Designed for any ANSI/SLAS 96-well plate

  • 24 and 48 vial heads also available

Ultravap Gemini: Double the Productivity

Do you need even more throughput? Look no further than the Ultravap Gemini. This dual-head solvent evaporator is engineered with two individually temperature-regulated evaporation positions, effectively doubling the sample processing capacity. With a choice of head styles, the Ultravap Gemini simplifies switching between different formats and ensures that your laboratory workflows are as efficient as possible.

  • Dual-head design for enhanced productivity

  • Independent control of each evaporator head

  • Simplifies switching between different heads

  • Can dry down 96-well plate at the same time as 48 vials

  • Compact and ergonomic design

Ultravap Levante: Elevate Your Evaporation Game

The Ultravap Levante is a powerful microplate evaporator designed for laboratories with demanding needs, offering rapid evaporation and exceptional versatility. With multi-step ramped programming, it is possible to set an initial fast drying period followed by a gentler final drying phase to reproducibly evaporate organic solvents from samples. The Ultravap Levante is an affordable robot-compatible model that is ideal for laboratories who may wish to automate the dry-down bottleneck in the future.

  • Customizable protocols for precise control

  • Stores up to five methods

  • Advanced head technology for consistent hot gas injection in each tube and well

  • Choice of 12-, 24-, 48-, 96- and 384 needle heads

  • Designed to eliminate risk of cross-contamination

Ultravap Mistral: Superior Sample Evaporation

The state-of-the-art Ultravap Mistral combines gentle yet effective sample drying with unmatched reproducibility. Its innovative technology minimises the risk of sample degradation making it perfect for a wide range of applications, including proteomics and pharmaceutical research. The flat front profile design combined with the platform shuttle enables full compatibility with liquid-handling robots for increased automation efficiency.  

  • Fully liquid handling robot-compatible dry down station

  • Plate shuttle sends/retrieves plates from robot deck

  • Master & multiple slave configuration supported

  • Store up to 15 method programs with up to 5 steps per method

  • Ideal for sensitive samples as only surface of sample is heated

  • Mistral XT150 model designed for tubes up to 150 mm high
