PennTech RW-250 Rotary Vial Washer

Available in the UK & Europe from Biopharma Group, the PennTech RW-250 provides an efficient means of particulate matter and micro-organism removal, while offering an alternative to labour-intensive, batch-style vial washers.

The key benefits of using the RW-250 include:

    • No penetrating nozzles in to the vials during the wash cycle – limiting the risk of particulate generation/contamination
    • Quick and easy changeover to different vial formats – promoting flexibility by not restricting users to a 1 x vial format
    • No space restrictions – Compact footprint of 1270mm x 1140mm, still allowing for a 3-log reduction in endotoxin
    • Self-draining at the end of a batch
    • Made specifically with small batch sizes in mind – removing the need to purchase oversized machines
    • Model can be purchased as part of a line, or stand-alone

Decades of practical process experience

I just wanted to say thank you to […] the whole team for the wonderful and very informative course and the great hospitality.
I really appreciated everyone’s efforts that resulted in a very nicely structured course that allowed us to familiarize ourselves with freeze drying and have a great time at the same time.

“The HT12 is a lovely instrument and is used every day. The methods [it utilises] are perfect for our needs”

R. Ellis

Laboratory Manager - Syngenta

“Great bit of kit [Genevac Rocket] that [we] have been using daily for past 12 months in a preparative chromatography lab.”

M. Sanders

Senior Research Scientist - AstraZeneca

“The Rocket is one of the best investments we’ve made and it’s paid for itself many times over. It’s been so popular that other labs have purchased time on it and have been blown away by it’s efficiency…”

“…we received commercial work from Welsh Water where we had to evaporate large numbers of methanol, acetonitrile and ethyl acetate extracts (typically 50ml) to dryness / near dryness and of course this was painfully slow on the Turbovaps and RSD’s were erratic. I convinced one of the scientists […] to try the Rocket and she was instantly converted. Evaporation rates were fast and RSD’s were much improved.”

A. Gravell

Technical Specialist - Natural Resources Wales

“We have been using an [Avestin] Emulsiflex C5 homogeniser here … since 2002 and the newer C3 since 2009. Our institute now has two of each model and they have been used extensively as the method of choice for large-scale protein production for x-ray crystallographic and NMR analysis of protein structure. The machines have consistently high performance and are extremely reliable. They are marvellous pieces of kit and I would recommend them to anyone wishing to purify large quantities of active proteins.”

Senior Researcher

“We have been dealing with Biopharma for several years and have purchased two freeze driers from them. We require the use of freeze driers in the process of our materials and not merely just for the removal of solvents and we have been very satisfied with the quality of the freeze dryers that we have bought. Additionally, the help and support we have received has been outstanding, not only when we have asked for help but also while sales personnel has been on site; i.e. when in another department they have contacted us and have come to speak with us as a matter of favour. As such we have been very impressed by their service”

We have been using the Kinematic Powder Filler successfully for several months now. We are a small pharmaceutical firm, and sell approximately 2000 sachets a month of a pharmaceutical powder. Previously, we had weighed individual sachets by hand. The powder filler has helped enormously, by delivering consistent weights of powder every time. Our requirement was +/- 0.1g.

The equipment is easy to calibrate, operate and maintain. We hope to use it on another product we are introducing.
