Why Genevac Products?

Genevac endeavours to provide the highest quality products, service and support. This is achieved through a unique range of innovative, high performance products and a commitment to customer satisfaction.

Genevac’s continuous programme of collaborative research has led to the development of many unique features which are designed to ensure optimum evaporation conditions and sample integrity.

HCl resistance

Genevac evaporators are robust systems designed to be resistant to the most common solvents and acids used within the chemistry laboratory, including TFA, DCM (methylene chloride), and DMSO.

Sample Protection

SampleGuard and SampleShield temperature control are found on HT High Throughput systems and EZ-2 personal evaporator series. These technologies monitor and control the maximum temperature of the samples to protect them from any possibility of overheating when evaporation is complete. The unique Dri-Pure system prevents solvent bumping and therefore loss of product.

High Speed Evaporation

CoolHeat technology dries samples rapidly while the high speed vapour pumping mechanism maintains low sample temperatures during evaporation.

The revolutionary SpeedTrap cold trap provides high performance solvent trapping having a high power compressor running at -50°C and is incredibly simple to use.

Patented Rocket Technology, used in the Rocket series evaporators, enables very fast evaporation with the highest levels of safety for both user and sample.

HT Series Evaporators

The Series 3 HT evaporator range from Genevac represents the ultimate in solvent removal technology. 


A Solution for High Throughput Evaporation

Genevac HT series evaporators are the ideal solution for parallel evaporation bottlenecks in high throughput and production laboratories having high performance and high sample capacities.  The unique design of the multi-layer rotor ensures efficient use of valuable laboratory bench space as well as high performance and high throughput evaporation.

Series 3i HT Evaporator - Third Generation Evaporation Excellence

Genevac has designed the Series 3i HT evaporator range with the user in mind. It is at the forefront of solvent evaporation technology, but also incorprates an ergonomic design, patented temperature control, built-in bumping prevention and the latest in touchcreen technology to make operation as smooth for users as possible. Additionally, a new high performance vacuum pump enabling process optimisation is also included.

The touchscreen controls enhance the review of the whole evaporation process and pre-set ‘Press & Go’ operation options for the most popular solvent removal protocols, are ideal for constant and occasional users alike. Simplified manual and automatic programming means even the most complex multi-stage evaporation methods can be set-up and run quickly and easily.

A wide range of sample holders  accepting microtubes and microtitre plates to large flasks is available, many can be integrated with other laboratory automation systems are available to further optimise productivity.

Key Features:

  • High speed & high throughput evaporation
  • Front opening for easy access
  • Fast lyophilisation capability
  • Rugged, yet ergonomic design with clean lines
  • Intuitive touchscreen control system for ultimate ease of use
  • Integrated condenser meaning a smaller system footprint

EZ-2 Evaporators

The latest Genevac EZ-2 4.0 series centrifugal evaporator for parallel sample evaporation has been redesigned with simplicity in mind and is based on decades of expertise in evaporation science. A modern and compact space-saving design – so you’ll still be able to find space in the fume hood or on the lab bench – the EZ-2 is now even more powerful and versatile to streamline your evaporation workflows and accelerate breakthroughs in life science research.

Solvent removal is an important step in a vast number of applications in many disciplines. The cutting-edge design of the EZ-2 delivers many advantages when it comes to solvent evaporation requirements and fitted with advanced technologies such as the Dri-Pure® anti-bumping system to prevent sample cross-contamination, automatic end of run detection, and sample temperature control software for precise temperature control. With unrivalled versatility, this ensures effortless, fast, and safe sample evaporation to give total peace of mind.

Key Improvements and Benefits:

  • Ergonomic redesign with the SpeedTrap™ jar at the front for easy visibility; removal or replacement is simpler and more intuitive
  • Touchscreen interface featuring more pre-set methods for frequently used protocols, methods guide, and recording of all run data
  • EXALT™ technology enabling crystallization studies such as polymorph screening
  • High power lamps and software improvements enhance overall performance

Rocket Evaporators

Rocket technology enables the rapid evaporation of larger volumes of solvent in parallel and without supervision.  The system controls the whole process, temperature, duration, prevention of bumping and foaming, and stopping the method at the correct point, be that concentrated or fully dry.

There are two systems available:

Rocket Synergy is designed to dry or concentrate six flasks in parallel, each containing up to 450ml of solvent. Alternatively, up to 18 ASE vials can be used. If you are running 3 or more rotary evaporators at the same time, then the Rocket Synergy is for you.

  • Concentrate to a defined volume
  • Custom methods
  • Very high speed
  • Unattended parallel operation
  • Concentrate directly into your vial with SampleGenie

The Rocket Synergy 2 high speed evaporator is designed to dry or concentrate up to six flasks, each containing a maximum of 450ml of solvent, or 18 ASE® vials, with no user intervention or attention. The removable flask rotor may also be replaced with a 5 litre stainless steel vessel for batch processing. It is five times faster than other ‘intelligent’ evaporators and is capable of replacing several rotary evaporators, saving valuable bench space.

Main benefits:

  • No waiting – five times faster than other ‘intelligent’ evaporators
  • Perfect results – no monitoring or intervention required for excellent sample recovery
  • Error-free – eliminates foaming, bumping and cross-contamination
  • Easy to use – simple controls and intelligent software
