Drying extracts in Forensics with RVCs

Martin Christ Forensics freeze dryers from John Morris Vacuum

Drying extracts in forensics

Rotational vacuum concentration is often used in forensic medicine as a replacement for the previous nitrogen blow-down method. In this area, extracts are dried in the course of examination for substances such as narcotics or cannabis products.

This drying method can also be used to remove superfluous derivatisation reagents during specimen preparation for gas chromatography analyses.

Rotational vacuum concentration allows drying to be performed faster, in a more defined manner and with less effort, and it is suitable for both organic and aqueous solutions. It is more time-efficient because the specimens can be processed in parallel.

John Morris Vacuum offers a wide range of Martin Christ RVC solutions.  Our RVC 2-33 CDplus is ideal for forensic applications.
