BioQuip’s superior Heavy Duty Hand-Held Aspirator was developed from a suggestion made by customer Gibson Anderson in Saratoga, California. It is built on a Skill® hand-held vac platform. The cordless unit is powered by a detachable 18 volt DC battery allowing greater mobility than that offered with other hand-held vac/aspirator systems. A fully charged battery can run the unit continuously for 15 minutes or longer. By having multiple batteries, the user can work in the field or in the lab for long periods of time, charging one battery while another is in use.

The aspirator has a nose section with a clear acrylic tube holding a removable collecting chamber 5" (12.7 cm) long x 2" (5.1 cm) in diameter. This versatile chamber has aluminum screen across one end for air flow, and a flap valve at the other. A supplemental end cap prevents escape of specimens when chamber is removed. By using multiple chambers, live specimens can be gathered from several locations and taken to the laboratory for identification or study. Suction strength can be adjusted using the vac’s air-bleed ring. A piece of tissue can be placed in the bottom of the collecting chamber to reduce damage to specimens caused by air turbulence when the unit is operating.

The heavy duty vac/aspirator set includes two batteries, a battery charger (110VAC), a collecting chamber, and two nozzles (6” and 12”, 15 and 30 cm).  Comes with a North American plug so a foreign plug adapter would be needed but not supplied.

The complete set weighs 6.95 lb. The unit with one battery attached weighs 3.95 lb.

Extra and replacement parts are available: 2820D collecting chamber with end cap; 2820E end cap, and 2820F neoprene flap valve.

Adding a 2820X nozzle extension tube set extends the vac/aspirator’s reach by five feet (1.5 meters), allowing users to collect specimens from cages or difficult-to-reach areas more easily. The 1/2" (13mm) flexible, clear vinyl tubing is inserted into a black stopper, which is in turn inserted into the end of the insect vac (after removing nozzle supplied with the unit). Two 3/8" (10mm) I.D. rigid acrylic pickup tubes with angled tips are provided, one straight and one angled at 45°.
