The Dandy-Vice is a tool which assists in the process of routine filtration in the laboratory.

The concept of the Dandy-Vice is aimed at reducing operator pain felt in the hand when working with samples having high concentrations of solids, viscose samples or samples with high molecular weight.

USING THE DANDY-VICE

1.     Prepare your sample in a chemical glass or other suitable receptacle.

2.    Using a plastic Luer Lock Syringe, fill to the volume you wish to filter.

3.    Mount the filter onto the end of the syringe and turn it half a turn to attach it firmly.

4.    Lift the handle of the Dandy-Vice upwards in the open position. Connect the syringe, with the filter attached, to the Dandy-Vice by pushing it into the designated position on the Dandy-Vice. Ensure the top of the syringe barrel is caught by the sprung catchers.

5.    Verify that the syringe’s plunger is located directly and accurately under the Dandy-Vice piston

6.    Verify that the syringe catchers  “sit” in the designated dents in the Dandy-Vice. 

7.    Verify that the receptacle is located accurately under the filter to avoid losing the sample.

8.    Press the handle of the Dandy-Vice downwards to activate the plunger and begin the filtering process.

THE SYRINGE CAN BE FILLED IN TWO WAYS:

1    Using a pipette or any other receptacle, make sure that the filter is attached to the spring.

2.    Using the syringe to attract the sample, and then connect the filter.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

1.    Using the Dandy-Vice enables you to carry out the filtration process away from your body

2.   Holding the Dandy-Vice in the hand with the syringe and filter in position, prevents the syringe from slipping due to the ease of use compared to doing the same operation with the thumb.

3.    If you are filtering hazardous materials, strictly adhere to the instruction of your laboratory in respect  of wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

4.   Do not apply power to the ?Dandy-Vice handle beyond the bending ability of one hand

5.   Do not use additional auxiliary tools to operate the Dandy-Vice handle.

6.   Strictly use a filter that is suitable for the type of sample and solvent being used. Greyhound Q-Range Syringe Filters are available for any application required.

7.   When filtering hazardous materials, adhere to the safety instructions that are relevant to those materials
