Convenient Top–Mounted Rotor
So much easier to load, empty or clean than rotors in wells. The rotor removes quickly for autoclaving. In case of an accident, spilled liquids or broken tubes remain in the rotor, not in the centrifuge.
Timer or 'Pulse' Operation
For short spins or manual operation, simply press the ‘Pulse’ button. For automatically controlled spins of longer duration, the timer can be set for intervals of up to 99 minutes.
Incredibly Light and Small
Weighs only 5 kg. So light and small (270 x 220 x 180mm when closed), it can be easily carried into a cold room, or another laboratory.
24 Tube Capacity
Choose which rotor best suits your needs- 24 x 2.2ml, 18 x 0.5ml rotor, PCR strip or haematocrit rotor. Alternatively, combine the 24 x 2.2ml rotor with a tube support for added flexibility.
Smooth, Quiet Operation
The aerodynamically designed rotor spins smoothly and quietly, virtually without vibration, even at maximum speed.
Safety Lid Lock
An electronic interlock prevents operation of the lid release button while the rotor is in motion. An indicator light signals when the rotor has come to rest and the lid may be opened safely. For emergency situations such as power failures, an override key is provided.
