Vivacell® 100

Vivacell® 100 Centrifugal Concentrator

Up to 100 ml starting volume
Vivacell® 100 is the latest member of the Vivacell® family.

The patented vertical membrane design allows highest performance and unmatched flexibility.

Vivacell® 100 is a unique and innovative concentrator for volumes from 20 ml to 100 ml, which utilizes pressure, centrifuge or pressure-shake to rapidly concentrate even samples with very high particle loading.

Vivacell® 100 is designed for centrifugal concentration of samples up to 100 ml which makes it the largest centrifugal unit available. At the same time, the new construction design allows for maximum centrifugal force of 4,000x g to be used for even faster concentration.

Vivacell® 100 utilizes:

  • Pressure
  • Centrifuge
  • Pressure-shake

Vivacell® 100, when used as a centrifugal device, fits only into swing bucket rotors accepting 250 ml bottles.

Vivacell® 100 units can also be used for single or extremely sensitive samples in the pressurized mode only and left on the bench or placed on a laboratory shaker for faster concentration. It can also be kept in a pressurized mode in the refrigerator. Handling is made easy by use of quick connectors. In whichever mode Vivacell® 100 is used, the vertical membrane design inhibits membrane fouling while the builtin dead stop impedes concentration to dryness and loss of sample.
