What We Delivered

Key Objectives

SP Genevac, world leaders in solvent evaporation technology, came to DesignEdge when it wanted an advanced aesthetic with a real ‘wow factor’ for its latest Rocket™ Evaporator, a high speed evaporator used in pharmaceutical laboratories around the world.


A spiral themed instrument was modelled in 3D CAD with graphical interface and distinctive display icons. The radical styling of the Rocket™ incorporates leading edge technology and PU RIM processes.

“Working with DesignEdge on the development of the Rocket™ has delivered our second award-winning instrument design. The eye-catching design is memorable and iconic, gaining a high degree of product and brand recognition in the market. The ergonomics of the system are superb, delivering ease of use and comfortable operation. The integration between the team at DesignEdge and our in-house engineers was effective and efficient, with drawings, plans and images delivered on time, and taking into account product and cost constraints inherent in the project. DesignEdge is a great development partner and our “secret weapon” in product innovation.”

Look Inside

Perfect results – no monitoring or intervention required for excellent sample recovery.

Now you don’t need to choose between flask or batch evaporation. The Rocket Synergy evaporator will accommodate your process, whatever the volume. Each is capable of replacing several rotary evaporators and saving valuable bench space.

Eye-catching form with revolutionary function

A Gold winner in the IBO Design Awards which recognizes outstanding industrial design of analytical instrumentation. Each Award winner stands out for how its industrial design not only creates a better looking instrument but is key to enhancing the user experience and instrument functionality. Criteria for the Awards include innovation, utility and approachability. The eye-catching design is memorable and iconic, gaining a high degree of product and brand recognition in the market.

Bowl Rotor

5l bowl rotor for Rocket 4D Synergy includes feed inner lid, feed baffle, lifting handles and USB data-key.

Strobe viewing window

Strobe controls enable monitoring of the progress of evaporation without stopping to open the lid; each flask may be viewed separately in real time.

Illuminated Condenser

Auto-draining frost-free solvent condenser collects all solvents as liquids. Plastic coated glass for safety and visibility.

Flask Rotor

Six-position Flask Rotor assembly with inner lid for Rocket Synergy and Rocket 4D Synergy evaporators.

Sample Genie™

Quick Clean glass evaporation flask.

Space Saving Design

Rocket Evaporators use patented vacuum technology to evaporate solutions to dryness or a concentrate. Five times faster than other ‘intelligent’ evaporators it is capable of replacing several rotary evaporators saving valuable bench space.

Easy Use Controls

Select the method for the solvents to be evaporated, set the maximum safe temperature and start. USB upload of new methods software and download of recorded data.

6 Flask capacity

Designed to dry or concentrate up to six flasks each containing a maximum of 450ml of solvent or 18 ASE® vials with no user intervention or attention.


Enables up to 18 ASE® vials to be dried in one operation in place of flasks.
