VACUSIP Portable Aspiration System

Portable Aspiration System

Product story

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.

How it Works

How it works

VACUSIP provides an out-of-the-box solution for a wide array of liquid waste disposal tasks. It features a reliable and silent pump, enabling it to operate independently from an external vacuum source. The rechargeable battery version provides even more flexibility. A unique hand operator allows for a fine regulation of the liquid flow and can be connected to various adapters.

  • VACUSIP aspiration system is small, compact and fits on every bench

    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.

  • VACUSIP benchtop aspiraton system is an out-of-box solution

    Just Convenient

    VACUSIP is an out-of-the-box solution. No installation or additional equipment is required.

    The integrated pump runs silently and stops automatically when the vacuum is established.

    Changing a filled collection bottle of VACUSIP is clean and convenient. Simply unscrew the lid and attach an empty glass bottle or a plastic bottle for direct disposal.

    To keep the workspace clean and organized, the hand operator can be placed in the integrated holder.

  • VACUSIP comes with a versatile silicone hand operator

    Versatile

    The silicone hand operator allows regulation of the liquid flow by applying varying finger pressure.

    Different adapters are available to match a multitude of laboratory containers.

  • VACUSIP aspiration system features a hydrophobic filter to protect instrument and environment

    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.
