In many laboratories across a wide range of disciplines removal of solvent from a dissolved sample is a routine, daily procedure. The majority of the methods employed to remove the solvent rely on the use of a vacuum to achieve low-temperature boiling, normally to prevent damage to a temperature-sensitive sample. This article demonstrates the great importance of paying sufficient attention to closely monitoring the drying process and presents solutions to save time and prevent sample loss.
