There are many reasons to prefer the use of a rotary evaporator to concentrate samples in the laboratory. First, it is a very controlled method to evaporate the solvent, obtaining a correct and precise concentration of the sample. In addition, the fact that the sample is not damaged during the process is very important, as it prevents the loss of precious material.
Another advantage of the rotary evaporator is that it allows you to work with small samples, which is very useful if you need to concentrate a very small sample. Another aspect to keep in mind is that the concentration time is usually very short, allowing to save time and effort.
In short, the rotary evaporator is a very efficient and useful instrument for concentrating samples in the laboratory, since it allows precise concentration control, prevents damage to the sample and is very fast.
