We use a simple benchtop still (located in a hood). You need to account for the water content. (84% acetonitrile, 16% water) Also, depending on your sensitivity needs, you can simply re-use the waste. That causes a baseline shift, of course, but you can sometimes deal with that for a short while. Good luck! Carolyn Carolyn J.
