BioChromato reports that the network of Russian Centers of Hygiene and Epidemiology (HEC) institutes are using its evaporators to improve sample preparation as part of their drive to improve the well-being of the population by monitoring safety food and the environment (atmospheric air, soil and drinking water) factors.

Chikako Yokosawa, Export Sales Manager at BioChromato, said: “We are delighted to have received and installed more than 10 smart evaporators in the HEC institute network across Russia. One of the applications where our smart evaporators C10, K4 and C1 are used as a sample preparation tool is the analysis of antibiotics, mycotoxins, pesticides in food by GC / MS and LC / MS. According to the standard methods used by the HEC, all samples must be evaporated to dryness before being redissolved in a solvent suitable for GC / MS or LC / MS analysis. Using the BioChromato C10 smart evaporator for this application allowed HEC to dramatically improve productivity by concentrating or evaporating to dryness simultaneously 10 samples in autosampler vials without fear of solvent shock and cross contamination. . Advantageously, the operating costs of smart evaporators are also much lower than those of nitrogen purge evaporators, since they do not require nitrogen gas to evaporate the solvents ”.

Ms. Yokosawa added, “Due to the unique concentration principle behind the Smart Evaporator C10, it has also benefited HEC applications where high boiling point solvents need to be evaporated. Our Vacuum Vortex Concentration (VVC) methodology allows users to quickly and safely remove even higher boiling point solvents including water, DMSO and DMF ”.
