Vivaflow® - 1

Product Datasheet Unique, plug and play laboratory crossflow cassettes Product Overview  Rapid sample processing, with ready-to-use cassettes operated by a standard peristaltic pump  Plug and play simplicity, thanks to the unique flip-flow channels that ensure optimal flux  Flexible and modular scalability, with a broad choice of membrane, MWCO and single or multi use options for samples up to 5 L Vivaflow® brings the benefits of tangential flow filtration to research and development laboratories. Operated with a standard peristaltic pump, these ready-to-use cassettes eliminate the cost and complexity of process-scale systems. Ideal for the ultrafiltration and diafiltration of 0.1 to 5 L samples, the unique flip-flow channel design provides plug and play convenience, ensuring optimal crossflow velocities for fast concentr

Product Information The Vivaflow® range offers a choice of crossflow devices for scientists who need to reliably concentrate or re-buffer aqueous samples with initial volumes of up to 5 L. Unlike other crossflow cassettes on the market, Vivaflow® is a dedicated laboratory product that meets the demand for ease of use without requiring additional, non-standard equipment or significant process optimization. A choice of devices, operated with a standard peristaltic pump, achieve optimal results for every ultrafiltration need: Vivaflow® cassettes lend themselves to a multitude of...

Working Principle Convenient Diafiltration Vivaflow® cassettes contain an ultrafiltration membrane over which a sample is recirculated using a peristaltic pump (Figure 1). The thin channel flip-flow path provides high crossflow velocities with minimal pump speed requirements of 200 – 400 mL/min. A flow restrictor included with each cassette generates the optimal transmembrane pressure for concentration | diafiltration of the sample, whilst the filtrate is collected in a separate vessel. Ultrafiltration can be stopped as soon as the desired volume is reached by simply turning off the pump....

Components for Operating One to Six Vivaflow® 50 Cassettes Figure 4 Precise scale-up in process speed when using one to four Vivaflow® 50 cassettes. 4x cassettes The modular design of Vivaflow® 50 enables the operation of multiple cassettes in series and parallel (Figure 3 and Table 1). This increases the maximum throughput to up to 3 L and accelerates processing speed in proportion to the membrane area (Figure 4). Concentration Factor Time [hr:min] Figure 3 System components for operating multiple Vivaflow® 50 cassettes. Series interconnectors (Order no. VFA031) T-connectors (Order no....
