Lost among small volumes of biological liquid waste?

VACUSIP is a portable benchtop aspiration system that follows you wherever you need it.

  • The VACUSIP is an out of the box solution. No installation or additional equipment is required for immediate use. Operating the VACUSIP is straight forward.
     
  • The integrated pump runs silently and stops automatically when the vacuum is established. This prevents unnecessary pump operation and further reduces noise.
     
  • Changing a filled collection bottle of VACUSIP is clean and
    convenient. Simply unscrew the green lid and attach an empty glass bottle or a plastic bottle for direct disposal.

VACUSIP - portable and compact

 

  • VACUSIP is small, compact and fits on every bench.
     
  • Due to its independence from an external vacuum source or power supply, it can be relocated wherever needed.
     
  • When working in a safety cabinet, only a minimum of tubing and cable is desirable. Due to the rechargeable battery in VACUSIP, a power supply cable is not needed.

Safety in mind

 

  • A hydrophobic filter protects the unit from damage and contamination by aerosols and liquids.
     
  • For easy decontamination, all parts that come in contact with liquids can be autoclaved.

Wide range of applications

VACUSIP is an ideal solution for the aspiration of small volumes of liquids up to 10 ml. Whenever supernatant or excess liquids need to be disposed, the VACUSIP makes short work of the process.

  • Small volumes of liquid out of microcentrifuge tubes or microtiter plates.¨
  • Supernatants after centrifugation steps (e.g. RNA/DNA extraction).
    Washing solutions in Western blots and ELISA.
  • Remaining quantities of reagents.
  • Buffers of Western blot strips.
  • Excess liquid from object slides and Petri dishes.
  • Bacterial solutions.
  • Cell staining solutions.
