Ultravap MistralUltravap Mistral

Automation-ready programmable evaporator

The Ultravap Mistral is designed to remove the traditional laboratory ‘bottleneck’ of solvent evaporation from microplates. Fully automating the dry-down step has always been impossible because it is difficult to interface liquid handling robots with traditional centrifugal-type evaporators. 

The Ultravap Mistral design, by dispensing with the rotating arm of the centrifuge and offering a fully-flat front profile, overcomes this problem and is much better positioned to link with your robot. With more than 20 years’ experience in producing deep well microplates, we have thoroughly researched the problems of drying down organic solvents in plates. This has led to the ultimate microplate blowdown evaporator – the Ultravap Mistral. 

The Ultravap Mistral is the most sophisticated automation-friendly model yet, giving significant throughput advantages to laboratories looking to optimise microplate sample preparation. Faster than centrifugal evaporation for single plates, significant increases in sample throughput are achieved through advanced evaporator head technology and an innovative manifold design, which directly injects heated nitrogen into each individual well of the microplate simultaneously. 

The Ultravap Mistral may be operated with a supply of clean, dry compressed air in place of nitrogen, if the chemistry allows. Installation requires only connection to a gas supply and mains electricity. Safety of operation is ensured as this CE-marked compact unit fits into all fume cupboards and boasts full integral fume management within the unit.

The new Ultravap Mistral is the latest development of the highly successful Ultravap line of blowdown evaporators and sample concentrators. It has been designed in close co-operation with the leading suppliers of laboratory liquid handling robots and is suitable for integration directly with the following manufacturers’ robots:

  • Hamilton Robotics – Star
  • Tecan – Freedom Evo
  • Perkin Elmer – Janus
  • Beckman Coulter – Biomek

The Ultravap Mistral offers a plate shuttle which can serve and retrieve plates from the deck of most liquid handlers. The colour touch-screen controlled dry down station accepts interchangeable 24-, 48-, 96- or 384-needle heads. It comes complete with clear safety screens and integral fume management leading to a 4 inch duct adaptor that incorporates a fan for high speed fume removal.
