Features of Optima™ MAX-XP

Quicker on the job.     Optima MAX-XP offers faster speed, thanks to our new MLA-150 fixed angle rotor. It has a low k-factor for faster separation of subcellular particles, viruses, proteins and more. With the most efficient rotor available, you’ll reduce overall turnaround time and accelerate workflow.    

Reliability you can count on.     As the world leader, Beckman Coulter is known for delivering the highest quality separation in the shortest time, day after day. We’ve leveraged over 60 years of proven centrifuge technology and made it available to you in this advanced benchtop design.    

Fits in anywhere.     Designed for ultimate flexibility, Optima MAX-XP works well wherever you need it–from your personal lab space to a pedestal table. Keeping biosafety in mind, we made it small enough to fit inside a standard biosafety hood, yet so powerful it will boost efficiency. HEPA filter option available.    

Makes everyone more comfortable.     Optima MAX-XP operates so quietly, it won’t disturb coworkers. Pleasant instrument sounds with adjustable volumes alert you when your run is complete. And the ergonomically designed door handle can be easily opened with just one finger.
