Smart Evaporator

Evaporation Re-Thought


In Vial Concentration

The Spiral Plugs come in various sizes for compatibility with many different sample tubes, flasks, and vials.

Coupled with a quick release, the Spiral Plugs are easily exchangeable between different sizes.

Bump Free Technology

The novel Spiral Plug technology generates a helical flow of air or inert gas over the surface of your solvent, thereby increasing the surface area. Since the vial isn’t under high vacuum, there is no risk of bumping or splashing.

DMSO & DMF Concentrator

The Smart Evaporator enables efficient evaporation of high boiling point solvents. With the inert gas purging feature (ex. nitrogen), it’s great for drying down solvents such as DMSO, DMF and water.
(inert gas recommended).

In Vial Concentration


“It is nice to be able to evaporate samples without having to constantly monitor it.”
Professor Richard T. TaylorDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Miami University.

“The Smart Evaporator is effective at concentrating and drying samples in vials and centrifuge tubes.”
Professor Takuya KumamotoDepartment of Pharmaceutical Sciences Organic Chemistry, Musashino University.

“The Smart Evaporator allows me to concentrate my samples into vials in less time with no mess?even DMSO and DMF. Very convenient!”
Researcher, Novartis

“Everybody in the lab likes to use it. It saves us a lot of time!”
Biotech company in Sunnyvale, CA

“The Smart Evaporator is perfect for small samples. I have found it especially useful for recovering material from d6-DMSO NMR samples.”
Dr. Tioga MartinAsc. Scientist, Agensys, Inc.

“I appreciate the Smart Evaporator’s ability to concentrate directly in my 2 mL sample vials bump free.”
Takeo KurataResearcher, Meiji University, Science and Engineering Applied Chemistry

“The Smart Evaporator has been useful for evaporating NMP. It is small and space-saving, so we can put it in a hot cell. I’m fully satisfied with the evaporation speed.
Mr. Hiroshi YamaguchiRadiology Research Department, Akita Prefectural Hospital
