Fraction Collectors

 

Teledyne Isco’s innovative fraction collectors reflect the knowledge that has been gained in over 40 years of experience. Our current lineup of Foxy and Retriever models offer a range of capabilities and capacities to meet practically any need. All feature coldroom-friendly design with moisture-resistant materials.

Foxy® R1

 

Foxy® R1

The one-rack Foxy R1 fraction collector can be adapted to a broad spectrum of applications. The units can distribute fractions into 96 well microplates, standard tube sizes, and bottles. For essentially unlimited volumes, funnel racks can direct fluids to any collection vessel or downstream process. 

Standard Features

  • Collect peaks of interest separately using any combination of slope, level, and time window reliably separates peaks by monitoring detector output, so you don’t have to expend glassware on no-interest effluent

  • Collect uniform fractions by time, drop count, or pumped volume

  • Stores up to 8 collection methods

  • Choice of available racks (specify when ordering). 

  • Coldroom-friendly design 

  • Sturdy cast aluminum frame 

  • Easy to use symbolic touch screen interface 

  • Built-in Ethernet and RS-232 communication capabilities 

  • Faster tube changes 

  • µL delay volume between diverter valve and drop former 

  • Flow rates to 25 mL/minute

Foxy® R2

 

Foxy® R1 

The two-rack Foxy R2 fraction collector can be adapted to a broad spectrum of applications. The units can distribute fractions into 96 well microplates, standard tube sizes, and bottles. For essentially unlimited volumes, funnel racks can direct fluids to any collection vessel or downstream process. 

The Foxy R2 fraction collector uses radio frequency identification to automatically detect collection rack s for easy setup.

  • Faster tube changes 

  • µL delay volume between diverter valve and drop former 

  • Flow rates up to 125 mL/minute

Retriever® 500 

 

Retriever® 500

Only the size of a notebook page, Retriever 500 still holds over a hundred tubes. More compact than other fraction collectors of similar or less capacity, Retriever 500 takes minimal space in your HPLC or low-pressure LC system, and fits easily in a cramped coldroom

Retriever 500’s multiple-rack, linear-movement configuration lets you remove filled tube groups at any time. A special "stop" rack, color coded red, marks the end of the run, shutting off the collector and a connected pump. The simple, reliable drive mechanism uses only one motor and has been proven in over 30,000 similar Isco instruments. An infrared rack sensing device precisely locates when mixed racks are used or when racks are left out. 

Retriever 500 operates on 14 volts supplied by a wall transformer. A thin low-voltage cord passes easily by a refrigerator door gasket. 

Retriever 500 is also available in complete LC systems with pump and UV detector. Contact your Isco representative to describe your requirements, and determine which of our bio-purification systems best meets your needs.

Standard Features

  • Compact 

  • Stationary drop former 

  • Collect uniform fractions by time or drop count

  • Multiple rack design lets you remove small groups of tubes anytime during a run
