VACUSAFE - Aspiration system with integrated pump
Aspiration Systems – VACUSAFE
Aspiration systems for laboratories
Life Science laboratories are daily confronted with biological liquid waste generation. Common applications include the removal of media from cell cultures, of supernatants after centrifugation, and of wash solutions from immuno-assay well-plates. Vacuum systems are then widely used for liquid aspiration, collection, and subsequent disposal.
A simple routine task like the aspiration of liquids requires user-friendly equipment that is easy to install and convenient to operate. 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 or hazardous liquids.
As an alternative to “do-it-yourself” systems typically found in laboratories, INTEGRA’s aspiration systems are designed for an easy, efficient, and safe collection of biological liquid waste from virtually any laboratory containers.
A hydrophobic filter protects the integrated vacuum pump from contamination and liquid entry. Exchanging a full collection bottle is both safe and easy and all components coming in contact with liquids can be autoclaved.
VACUSAFE is a compact, all-in-one laboratory vacuum pump, providing a safe and efficient way to collect and contain biological liquid waste. For maximum safety, VACUSAFE is equipped with vacuum source protection, a shatterproof bottle, and a secure stand that holds the bottle in place.
There are three available models for VACUSAFE.
Features common to all models:
- Shatterproof autoclavable waste collection bottle and handle
- Hydrophobic filter for protection against overflow of liquid and escape of aerosols
- Autoclavable VACUBOY aspiration tool with different adapters and tubing
- Vacuum control: noise reduction, increased pump’s lifetime, minimized evaporation of volatile solvents.
