  • Large Touch-screen Display 
    Easy to read and navigate. Viewable from across the lab. Intuitive graphical interface with on-screen help. Multilingual software for error-free operation. 
  • Improved Power Tolerance 
    Maintains runs during power fluctuations. Handles a wider tolerated range of 180 VAC to 264 VAC. Tracks power interruption data to convey if parameters remained within an acceptable range.  
  • Security and tracking features 
    Manage rotor life by serial number. Track detailed usage history. Password protection and electronic signatures help you maintain chain of custody and compliance. 
  • Remote Monitoring and Control 
    Saves time. Start, stop, and monitor from computer or smart phone. Receive diagnostic alerts via e-mail.  
  • Real-time Run Graphing 
    Plots speed and temperature over time, allowing you to track and record progress. 
  • Powerful On-board Simulation and Calculation Tools 
    Saves time and samples. Proprietary software optimizes protocols before running to ensure maximum efficiency. Quickly perform common calculations and conversions. 
  • Energy Efficient 
    Regenerative braking returns energy to local circuit reducing utility costs. Highly efficient thermoelectric cooling results in lower power consumption. Uses the same amount of power as a 60-watt light bulb while idling. 
  • Quiet-drive Technology 
    Designed for lowest drive noise – this is the quietest floor model on the market. Operates at less than 51dBA.  
  • Total System Design 
    The Optima XPN, its rotors and its labware are designed, manufactured, and tested as an integrated system to ensure optimal performance and safety for your lab.
