Product story

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.

How it Works

How it works

VACUBOY is a versatile aspiration tool that converts any vacuum source into a user-friendly aspiration system for aspirating liquids from virtually any laboratory container – at the touch of a button and in a controlled way.

The hand piece, the core element of VACUBOY, is simply connected to any available vacuum source using silicone tubing and fitted with one of the different aspiration adapters.

The perfect match is obtained when VACUBOY is connected to a VACUSAFE aspiration system.

  • Versatile

    Following features make VACUBOY a versatile tool:

    • The large choice of adapters allows VACUBOY to handle liquids from all tubes, dishes, bottles, T-flasks or multi-well plates, suiting their form and size.

    • Adapters for aspiration with Pasteur pipettes, serological pipettes, disposable pipette tips or stainless steel needles.

    • Multi-channel adapters for fast emptying of multi-well plates.
