Sorvall - Legend RT

Manufactured by  Sorvall
Follow this Equipment

A general-purpose tabletop centrifuge for biotechnological and pharmaceutic research that moves high capacity centrifugation onto fast track.

The Legend RT is a general-purpose tabletop centrifuge for biotechnological and pharmaceutic research that moves high capacity centrifugation onto the fast track. It spins more tubes, at higher RCFs, more rapidly than competitive instrument       
s, and can process nominally three liters of sample in a single run. There are       
various rotors available that can achieve high RCFs and accommodate a wide range of accessories for all common tube types, micro titer and deep well plates.       
The user-friendly "QUIKset" control panel permits easy selection of speed, RCF value, run time and deceleration profile, as well as temperature of the Legend™ RT. You can switch from speed to RCF display and vice versa, with a touch of a button and even during a run.

Features of Legend RT

Unmatched versatility, exceptional throughput      Sorvall Legend T Plus and RT Series Benchtop Centrifuges offer industry-leading capacity and performance for a three-liter tabletop centrifuge. Nine swinging-bucket rotor configurations and seven fixed-angle rotors are available. Rotor systems designed to handle up to 108 x 5/7ml blood collection tubes, 28x50ml conical tubes or 6x250ml bottles in a single run allow you to achieve greater levels of productivity.      

Unsurpassed productivity with high-capacity accessories      New carbon fiber rotors from FIBERLite® provide an advanced alternative to traditional metal rotors. Lightweight and easy to handle, these rotors generate less wear on the centrifuge motor and are resistant to corrosion, fatigue and repeated autoclaving. Spin up to 14x50ml conical tubes in a single run. Achieve superspeed performance with RCFs over 24000xg on the benchtop. Safely perform high RCF, single-step separations using sterile, disposable conical tubes.     

Enhanced user and sample safety      Sorvall Legend T Plus and RT Series Benchtop Centrifuges: The next generation Legend in sample preparation. The SMARTspin® imbalance detection system allows for eye balancing of samples with automatic termination of a run if excessive imbalance occurs. Automatic rotor recognition ensures precise rotor performance while preventing the use of incorrect accessories or parameters.            User-friendly operation      The EASYset™ soft-touch keypad allows for one-touch control of speed, programming and pre-cooling functions. A bright, easy-to-read LED display allows easy monitoring from across the lab.
