Vivaspin® 6 Centrifugal Concentrator

Vivaspin® 6 Centrifugal Concentrator

Up to 6 ml starting volume
Concentrate up to 200x
Vivaspin® 6 ml concentrators have been developed to offer increased volume flexibility and performance.

Vivaspin® 6 can process an impressive 6 ml in either swing bucket or fixed angle rotors accepting standard 15 ml conical bottom test tubes.

The Vivaspin® 6 features twin vertical membranes for unparalleled filtration speeds and 100x plus concentrations. Remaining volume is easy to read off the printed scale on the side of the concentrator and the modified dead stop pocket further simplifies direct pipette recovery of the final concentrate.

Applications

  • Concentration of urine prior to electrophoresis for diagnosis of multiple myeloma and amyloidosis.
  • Concentrate spinal fluid prior to electrophoresis for diagnosis of meningitis and multiple sclerosis.
  • Protein removal from serum & cell / tissue lysates.
  • Exchange buffers for proteomic peptide samples.
  • Prepare samples for mass spectrometry.
