Meet the family:

Basic. The BVC Basic is the unpowered version, suitable for use with a VACUU•LAN® vacuumnetwork, central vacuum system or shared pump. A mechanical regulator provides a suitable vacuum level in the bottle for aspiration, and disconnects it from the supply when that level is reached – no power required! This reduces demand on the vacuum supply, increasing efficiency while reducing noise and impact on other applications. Ready for use - supplied with a stable and easy-to-clean powder coated metal stand, 0.2μm biofilter, and VacuuHandControl. Available in heavy duty polypropylene or disinfectant-resistant "G" glass versions.

Control. The BVC Control features a powerful, whisper-quiet VACUUBRAND®chemistry-design vacuum pump, eliminating the need for central vacuum supply; potentially Biohazardous materials can be contained in a local area. The pump is turned on and off automatically on demand when using the VacuuHandControl which further reduces the noise level. An easy-to-clean touch panel adjusts and indicates the vacuum level switch point. This provides exactly the aspiration power you need ,when you need it. Available with either a 4 liter polypropylene, or 2 liter disinfectant-resistant "G" version with glass bottle.

Professional. The top-of-the-line BVC Professional adds a liquid level sensor outside the bottle, without contacting bottle contents. This lets you concentrate fully on your work without worrying about overflow. A special disinfection program allows the aspiration of disinfectant after the system is shut down to decontaminate the VacuuHandControl. The 4 liter polypropylene bottle version is supplied with quick connectors as standard; the 2 liter glass bottle "G"” version includes hose barb connections; optional quick connectors are available. The contact free design of the level sensor simplifies container design and reduces costs when using multiple collection bottles. The BVC family of aspiration systems— Culture, refined
