Safe Aspiration of Liquid Waste

Hits:4249   Date: 10/27/2010

The compact VACUSAFE laboratory vacuum system from INTEGRA sets a new standard for simple, reliable and safe aspiration of waste liquids.

Unlike many "home-made" aspiration systems made from non-optimised parts, the VACUSAFE is a dedicated product for the convenient and safe disposal of almost any liquid waste. The VACUSAFE has a range of important safety features including a dependable liquid waste level sensor to prevent overfilling of the bottle and two hydrophobic filters that block potentially dangerous aerosols from entering the laboratory workspace. The self-sealing quick connectors prevent spills after disconnecting the tubing and a sturdy handle makes the carrying and emptying of the VACUSAFE waste bottle really simple and effortless. With a wide range of VACUBOY adapters included - removal of liquids is possible from virtually any container format. Designed with the user in mind aspiration of any waste or hazardous liquids using the VACUSAFE is a real pleasure rather than a difficult task.

For laboratories looking for an all-in-one vacuum aspiration system the VACUSAFE combines a low-noise pump, a shatterproof collection bottle with quick connectors and a versatile VACUBOY hand operator. The system is most handy to operate - switch on, set the desired vacuum and start aspirating. VACUSAFE is the laboratory aspiration system of choice for the huge range of applications where quick and controlled vacuum removal of liquid waste is required.

For laboratories wishing to utilise an existing vacuum source while still benefiting from many of the advantages of the internationally popular product - INTEGRA now also offers a VACUSAFE system without integrated vacuum pump, priced to be affordable by almost all laboratories.

Designed for use with the VACUSAFE system, the VACUBOY hand operator is a convenient tool for controlled aspiration of liquids - at the press of a button. Connected to a VACUSAFE system, the VACUBOY hand operator precisely regulates aspiration flow by a finger pressure activated valve and includes a variety of aspiration adapters to suit virtually any container or tube.
