Beckman Coulter Optima TL 100


Optima TL 100

The Beckman Optima™ TL 100 is a state-of-the-art ultracentrifuge. With its reliable and flexible performance, the TL 100 system meets the full-service centrifugal needs of hundreds of clinical laboratories all over the world as it can reach speeds up to 100,000 rpm and generate a force of 543,000 x g.   
The first of its kind in the world, the Beckman Optima™ TL 100 ultracentrifuge uses a vacuum-encased induction drive to eliminate high-speed vacuum seal. The feature also reduces heat output to 6150 Btu per hour and noise output to less than 60dB. Additionally, the friction reduction system of this Optima™ centrifuge minimizes heat output and improves the life of the motor.   
The Beckman TL 100 centrifuge is easy to set up, and requires relatively low maintenance. Along with this, the Beckman centrifuge also has the ability to display diagnostic issues or errors, and store up to 10 user programs. Other convenient features and capabilities of the Beckman Optima™ ultracentrifuge include thermoelectric refrigeration, microprocessor control, smooth acceleration/deceleration, air-cooled drive, and imbalance tolerant drive.
