Liquid Handling

AsPro Banner

The Whitley AsPROvac is an all-in-one laboratory aspirator to ensure biological liquid waste can be aspirated and disposed of quickly and safely. Whether it is the delicate removal of supernatants or the rapid emptying of larger culture flasks, this flexible system has a range of 1 – 20 vacuum levels to alter the aspiration speed. A range of aspiration tools are provided to enable you to aspirate from a variety of vessels.

AsPROvac features a novel, quick-release cap/lid assembly, a shatterproof 4 litre autoclavable waste bottle and digital display of the vacuum level.

Supplied with the hand-held aspirator is a single tip and an 8-channel tip plus a single disposable tip adaptor and an 8-channel tip adaptor.

The AsPROvac laboratory vacuum system is ideal for use  with a Hypoxystation (that has a vacuum take-off port fitted).
