At the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Sunderland lab is conducting analysis of environmental samples. Specifically, they are analyzing trace metals and PFAS in water, soil, sediment and biological tissues. Their laboratory is made up of different instruments to aid in their research and analysis.
Organomation’s 12 position N-EVAP laboratory evaporator uses nitrogen blowdown to concentrate sample extracts prior to analysis. During evaporation, the user has full control of gas flow to samples, which conserves nitrogen gas. The unit also has a heated water bath to decrease concentration times.
Effective nitrogen blowdown evaporation balances gas flow and heat to remove solvent quickly without degrading delicate samples. Here are some tips to optimize your blowdown evaporation.
Rule #1: Select the correct flow rate and needle gauge for your tube size
Organomation manufactures nitrogen dryers that are built to last! Our time-tested instruments can last in any laboratory for many years. We manufacture our instruments with high quality parts from suppliers we trust. Our hope is that you will not need to replace your nitrogen dryer until it no longer can be used. However, Organomation knows that certain situations can lead to a customer needing a replacement.
Environmental laboratories work with applications that each require different types of testing. This can make it hard to find the proper instruments to meet their specific needs. At Organomation, we provide a variety of test tube evaporators to meet the sample preparation needs of environmental laboratories.
We are happy to announce that we have just released new and improved product brochures for our laboratory evaporators! These brochures provide a complete breakdown of each instrument with the most up-to-date information, making them perfect for those who are comparing their options.
One of the most common questions we receive from customers is, “what is the difference between water and dry bath N-EVAPs”? There are a few key differences in the design, maintenance, temperature range, and specific advantages.
Customer: Environmental Laboratory
One of the largest environmental testing laboratories in the United States relies on Organomation instruments of high-quality sample analysis for water, soil, and emerging contaminants, such as PFAS.
The state-of-the-art laboratory facility uses the best sampling equipment and technology to meet customer’s needs.
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection Agency (MassDEP) has announced a new program for free PFAS testing for private well owners in the state of Massachusetts. Municipalities where 60% or more of residents receive drinking water from non-public water systems, such as from private wells supervised by the local Board of Health are eligible to apply.
Organomation continues to partner with PolyScience to offer its new line of DuraChill laboratory chillers. For laboratories that require a source of cool water to chill or cool their samples, PolyScience’s portable chillers provide a constant and reliable source of liquid coolant for a variety of laboratory applications.
