The HSC-40 was designed for concentrating biological particles such as bacteria, viruses, DNA, and proteins/toxins in the size range of approximately 0.01 micron to 20 microns diameter. The technology provides a macro-to-micro interface™ between large sample volumes and very small analysis volumes required by modern detectors and by standard analysis methods such as plating. Large samples are processed through the HSC-40 where particles of interest are captured and recovered into a volume as small as 10 microliters. The process is very rapid which allows large sample volumes to be concentrated into a standard analysis volume in minutes or even seconds. In short, the system provides a quantitative, rapid method that allows dilute samples to analyzed in minutes rather than the days required if an enrichment step is needed. The InnovaPrep HSC-40 liquid-to-liquid concentrator is the only available, fully automated concentrator that provides rapid, quantitative, and efficient concentration of particles as small as 10 nanometer.
