In combination with the QIAvac Connecting System, the QIAvac 24 Plus vacuum manifold can be used as a flow-through system. The sample flow-through, containing possibly infectious material, is collected in a separate waste bottle.
The QIAvac Connecting system must be used together with a Vacuum pump.
System to connect vacuum manifold with vacuum pump: includes Tray, Waste Bottles, Tubing, Couplings, Valve, Gauge, 24 VacValves
The QIAvac Connecting System has been specifically designed for use with the QIAvac 24 Plus manifold and the QIAGEN Vacuum Pump. It may be possible to use the QIAvac Connecting System with other manifolds and laboratory vacuum pumps using adaptors (not supplied).
The integrated Vacuum Regulator measures the pressure difference between the inside and outside of the vacuum system. Use of the Vacuum Regulator makes it easy to monitor the pressure generated by the vacuum source.
Instructions for connecting the QIAvac Connection System between the vacuum source and the vacuum manifold are provided in the handbook.
The QIAvac Connecting System together with the QIAvac 24 Plus vacuum manifold proved to be an ideal set up for convenient processing of several QIAGEN kits.
