German term or phrase: eingeengt
Unknown term is "eingeengt" (see below). Context is biochemistry: patent description of chemical reaction to create an extract of a special kind of steroid. The phrasing reads:

Die Reaktionslösung bleibt über Nacht bei Raumtemperatur stehen und wird dann in Chloroform aufgenommen. Der Extrakt wird mit Wasser, verd. Salzsäure, Wasser, Natriumhydrogencarbonatlösung und Wasser gewaschen, getrocknet und EINGEENGT.
Erik
concentrated
Explanation:
Muret Sanders gives this as a special meaning of einengen/Einengung used in chemistry.

It also has the advantage of fitting the sentence!!!

Thank you for the tip. My version of Muret Sanders lacked this chemistry-related item. Dry items can indeed by concentrated.
