Italian term or phrase: sorgente per il vuoto
I am translating a list of equipment for sterility testing -

siringhe disponibili sterili, filtri a membrana, filtri vari, **sorgente per il vuoto", forcipi, etc.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Explanation:
I'd say the text is being deliberately generic to cover the different ways that vacuum could be obtained (vacuum pump, vacuum line etc.), so you need an equally generic translation.
