The BVC family of fluid aspiration systems are designed from the ground up to meet the needs of the modern cell culture laboratory. They are quiet and compact, and provide flexibility to accommodate your decontamination protocol. The BVC Basic is suitable for use with a central vacuum or VACUU*LAN system. Complete with a mechanical regulator, it reduces demand on vacuum supply, increasing efficiency while reducing noise and impact on other applications. Both the BVC Control and BVC Professional feature a VACUUBRAND chemistry-design vacuum pump. The BVC Professional adds a liquid level sensor outside the bottle. All models are available in heavy duty polypropylene or disinfectant-resistant "G" glass versions.

Specifications

All BVC Fluid Aspiration Systems are supplied with: 0.2µm protection filter, VHCpro hand controller w/2m tubing, and a 4L polypropylene or 2L borosillicate glass (G) collection flask.
