The Stuart RE401 and RE401P rotary evaporators are supplied with vertical coil condensers and a complete set of glassware.
20% smaller footprint compared to RE400
Long life graphite impregnated PTFE vacuum seal
Easy to use vacuum release
Continuous feed option
Simple counterbalance lift mechanism
Replaces RE301 and RE301P
Based on the same high quality stand as the RE400, the RE401 comes with a vertical coil condenser ideal where space is at a premium, for example in a fume cupboard. The specially designed condenser gives a smaller footprint, reducing the width of the evaporator by over 20% compared to the RE400. A model with plastic coated glassware is available (code RE401P). Condenser, adapter, receiver flask and Florentine flask have a temperature and chemically resistant polymer coating which will counterbalance the effect of implosion which can sometimes happen if damaged glassware is accidentally put under vacuum. The plastic coating acts as a safety screen, containing the glassware pieces thus protecting the operator. The sample or Florentine flask can additionally be heated by an accessory bath (not included) to accelerate the process.
Glass set 01 consists of:
Vertical coil condenser* vertical coil adaptor* Vapour tube for vertical condenser* Recieving flask 1000ml* Florentine flask 100ml* Feed tube with stopcock Vacuum seal Conical joint clip and Spherical joint clip
*Supplied plastic coated in model RE401P
What is BioCote?
BioCote anti-microbial coating additive is present on all Stuart brand equipment and offers anti-microbial action to help prevent cross-contamination.
This unique additive is applied during the manufacturing process and contains trace levels of active silver ions which provide an effective anti-microbial action, active against many strains of common bacteria and fungi, including Aspergillus niger, E.coli and Listeria mono.
This coating remains active for the entire product lifespan and can actually help in prolonging the life of products, where a build up of microbes may cause premature material degradation.
BioCote works by inhibiting bacteria in a number of ways including protein damage, cell membrane damage, oxidative damage and DNA interference. Ultimately, the bacteria are prevented from replicating. Without this, bacteria have been shown to die naturally within around 8 hours. BioCote works in a way different to antibiotics so it is currently effective against antibiotic resistant strains.
More recently, BioCote technology was proven effective against particular virus strains, with a reduction of 90% in 2 hours against feline coronavirus, strain Munich. Read more here.
