Don’t worry about the dry ice supply chain going dry – with Ecodyst If you’ve been keeping up with logistics news, you might have heard of the dry ice supply chain, and how it’s taken a significant hit during the COVID-19 pandemic: with vaccines requiring temperatures as low as -70°C during transport and storage, the […]
Using a vacuum source with your rotary evaporator comes with a significant set of advantages, like making your processes safer, more efficient, cleaner, and overall, easier. In this blog post, we’re going through all the reasons why owning a rotary evaporator is typically paired with using a vacuum source (either built-in or a vacuum pump). […]
When operating a rotary evaporator in your lab, you want to make sure that you’re being as efficient as possible. One of the main factors to be considered is the rotational speed of your rotary evaporator, and while it might seem like maxing it out is your best option, it might not always be the […]
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, May 1, 2022 – NIRvana Sciences, Inc., the leading developer of synthetic bacteriochlorins and chlorins, today announced that it is purchasing an environmentally friendlier chiller for its rotovap system from Ecodyst, a local company in Apex, North Carolina. Chris MacNevin, VP of Operations, said “We recently retrofitted one of our existing […]

You just bought your rotary evaporator, you set it up on your benchtop after making sure to follow the manual instructions word for word. Everything’s all set and you’re ready to get some work done with your evaporator. And then it hits you: What temperature should you set your rotary evaporator to? Enter the “Rule […]
Rotary evaporators can be spotted in labs under fume hoods or directly on benchtops. While both options are valid, there are multiple factors that need to be taken into account when deciding whether to use a fume hood or not. This blog post puts everything on the table (or benchtop) to help you answer the […]
Solvent recovery and distillation are critical processes in a range of industries. Both processes are used to separate and purify elements meaning they are helpful means of recovering a range of chemical components. This article will detail both processes and how they measure up against one another. What is Solvent Recovery Solvent recovery or solvent […]
Cold traps are used to condense vapors present in vacuum applications into a solid or liquid state (excluding permanent gases). The main function of a cold trap is to ensure that there is no contamination inside vacuum applications. Whilst experiments are conducted, containers must sit airtight so no vapor can escape and no extra gas […]
Terpenes are aromatic compounds that are present in many plants. They are commonly associated with cannabis plants as they contain high concentrations of terpenes. Terpenes create the characteristic scent of a range of plants – making up the bulk of the fragrance. Terpenes protect animals from grazing and infectious germs but they can also have […]
Rotary evaporators are found in many chemistry laboratories across the world. They have a range of uses and applications in both research and industry. They are an essential piece of lab equipment that allows for the fast and efficient removal of solvents from samples. This article presents an investigation into the differences between the Ecodyst […]
Cold traps safeguard vacuum pumps from being contaminated by vapors being condensed in the device. They also stop oil vapors from backstreaming from the pump back to the system, making the vacuum pumps more efficient and less likely to break down. In this article, we discuss the types of cold traps available and their benefits […]
