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. Installation requires only connection to a gas supply and mains electricity. With a choice of 96 straight or 96 spiral needles, plus 24, 48 and 384 straight needles.

The new Ultravap Mistral lends itself to full integration with most robotic liquid handlers, where it is usually located on the right-hand side of the deck. Control commands are sent directly from the robot controller to the Ultravap. These standard commands are listed in the manual, but most robot manufacturers have drivers available to control the Ultravap, making integration a seamless process.

Most common chromatography solvents can be evaporated with ease, such as dichloromethane, methanol, acetonitrile and hexane. The nitrogen blow-down method is not, however, suitable for high-boiling point solvents such as DMF, DMSO and water. It is also unable to be used with acids or acid chlorides, as special corrosion-resistant systems are needed for this work. The choice of straight or spiral needles allows the user to choose between faster dry down (spiral) and better final drying in V-well plates (straight). The spirals cause a vortex to form in the solvent, increasing the surface area and thus speeding up the rate of evaporation. Evaporator System Requirements Gas flow rate: 28L/min minimum, 80L/min maximum at 6 bar pressure. Can be used with nitrogen or dry compressed air if the chemistry allows. Not suitable for use with strong acids or acid chlorides.
