    Intuitive Operations 

    In today’s laboratories, peristaltic pumps are often first choice when liquids within the range of several milliliters to several liters have to be transferred. The main advantage of these pumps is that the liquid transferred remains enclosed inside the tubing. As a result, the risk of contaminating either the product or the pump itself is prevented. However, most laboratory peristaltic pumps are difficult to program, are oversized and bulky.

          VACUSAFE & VACUBOY

          INTEGRA 
          VACUSAFE & VACUBOY

          Safe Aspiration of Liquid Waste

          The VACUSAFE combines vacuum (integrated pump or external source), collection bottle, overflow protection and filter in an all-in-one liquid aspiration system. The use of such a closed aspiration system offers the most effective method for containment of hazardous liquids and eliminates the risk of contaminating operators and equipment.

          Make an Enquiry

          Liquid Waste Gone in a Sip

          Vacuum systems are widely used for aspiration of liquids and their subsequent disposal. Common applications include the removal of media from cell cultures, of supernatants after centrifugation and of wash solutions from immunoassay well-plates.

          Protecting the vacuum source from contamination by liquids and aerosols with an overflow trap and a filter is not only good laboratory practice, but also imperative as a personal protection measure when working with biological, chemical or radioactive liquids.

          As an alternative to “do-it-yourself” systems typically found in laboratories, the VACUSAFE aspiration system offers increased safety, exceptional userfriendliness and high versatility.

          Safety First: Protection for Yourself and the Lab

          The VACUSAFE product range offers different levels of safety depending on the requirements of specific applications. Basic safety characteristics that apply to all models include

          • Hydrophobic filter for vacuum source protection,
          • Shatterproof bottle for prevention of spills,
          • Stand for securely holding the bottle in place,
          • Autoclavability of the system components that contact liquid.

           

          For total containment of hazardous liquids, the best choice is one of the closed systems with additional safety features:

          • Integrated pump with vacuum control (no risk of contaminating house vacuum pipelines and reduced environmental impact by evaporation of volatile solvents).
          • Self-closing connectors for avoiding escape of drops or aerosols from disconnected bottle and tubing.
          • Level sensor detecting when the bottle is full and so preventing liquid overflow.

          Versatile Tools for all Liquid Aspiration Tasks

          An important component contributing to the versatility of the VACUSAFE system is the vacuum aspiration tool VACUBOY because it can be fitted with different adapters for removal of liquids from virtually every laboratory vessel. The application range is further expanded by the possibility to adjust the vacuum level depending on the needs: from gentle removal of supernatants from a centrifuge tube or 96-well plate to fast emptying of a large culture flask

          The system’s versatility is increased by the option to connect two VACUBOY aspirators to the same VACUSAFE, which is particularly important for busy laboratories where often two persons work simultaneously in the same biosafety cabinet.
