Aspiration Systems – VACUSIP
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.
Lost among small volumes of biological liquid waste?
Until now, aspiration of supernatants after centrifugation steps or removal of washing solutions from microtiter plates have been mainly accomplished by self-made systems consisting of a trap flask, a rudimentary aspiration tool, and an external vacuum source. Using such self-made tools has major limitations in convenience, safety, and efficiency. The different parts need to be assembled individually, the handling is cumbersome and there is a considerable risk of contaminating the house vacuum system.
To eliminate these disadvantages, INTEGRA has developed VACUSIP, a portable aspiration system for convenient and affordable liquid waste disposal. It is a compact and ready-to-use vacuum aspiration system with an integrated silent vacuum pump for the aspiration of small volumes of liquids. With VACUSIP you no longer have to worry about tedious handling or the risk of contaminating your house vacuum system.
VACUSIP provides an out-of-the-box solution for a wide array of liquid waste disposal tasks. It features a reliable and silent pump, enabling it to operate independently from an external vacuum source. The rechargeable battery version provides even more flexibility. A unique hand operator allows for fine regulation of the liquid flow and can be connected to various adapters.
