Greetings from NOLA! The KNF Lab team is checking in from the #pittcon15 Conference and Expo, booth #2211, in balmy New Orleans, LA. Among the new products, applications, and all-things-lab we’re looking forward to seeing this week, it’s also a great opportunity to raise awareness about our own innovations and contributions to the scientific community.
While some exhibitors may be launching products sure to be marketed as the “latest and greatest” this year, KNF is providing a simple, yet time-saving update to our already well-received RC 900 rotary evaporator.
As is the foundation of our business, we’ve listened to the industry, and learned how we can make lab practices easier. This continued research led to the development of an upgraded memory system, which saves precious time in the lab. Even though we’ve seen the amazed faces the RC 900’s features cause, we’re proud to announce that this memory function will provide a new level of simplified rotary evaporation.
While rotary evaporation often requires numerous flask exchanges, the process parameters sometimes don’t change. The time required to exchange the flask and input the same parameters during each step could be well-spent elsewhere. To remedy this, KNF developed a memory feature for the RC 900, which saves the rotary evaporator’s current immersion depth and rotation speed. Pressing the button on the Bluetooth-enabled wireless remote control allows the flask to be changed quickly, easily and reliably during iterative processes, as the instrument automatically re-sets to the previous depth and speed. Consequently, lab scientists need to simply press the button, and the RC 900 will take care of the rest.
Learn more about the RC 900, or our full line of diaphragm vacuum and liquid pumps and systems for laboratory applications. And don’t forget to drop by the KNF booth this week!
