Moving liquids in a precise and productive way is core to the work of many laboratory professionals in the life sciences industry. Since 1965, INTEGRA has been dedicated to developing solutions for pipetting and media preparation, fulfilling the needs of our customers in research, diagnostics and quality control.
Aspiration Systems – VACUBOY
Convert any vacuum source into a user-friendly aspiration system Successful removal of supernatants from lab containers by means of a vacuum aspiration system depends on applying the correct level of vacuum and on using an aspirator tip that matches the size and form of the container from which liquid is aspirated. In order to convert any vacuum source into a user-friendly aspiration system, INTEGRA has come up with VACUBOY, a versatile aspiration tool for aspirating liquids from virtually every laboratory vessel.
Aspiration Systems – VACUSAFE
Safe disposal of biological liquids Vacuum systems are widely used in biological laboratories for the aspiration, collection and subsequent disposal of biological liquid waste. Typically, “do-it-yourself” systems, consisting of a vacuum flask connected via a tubing to a water-jet pump, are found in laboratories. However, these self-made systems have some significant drawbacks. Emptying the flask is tedious and messy, connected Pasteur pipettes can get broken and injure the operator and most critical, the vacuum source often gets contaminated by liquids or aerosols. As a much safer and user-friendly alternative, INTEGRA developed the VACUSAFE aspiration system. 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.
Aspiration Systems – VACUSIP
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.
