Optima Max-XP Benchtop-Ultracentrifuge with nine native languages

Wednesday, 13 April, 2011 | Supplied by: Beckman Coulter Australia



Nine native languages are available on the Optima Max-XP Benchtop-Ultracentrifuge, a compact platform on which labware, rotors and centrifuges are manufactured and tested as an integrated system to ensure optimal performance and safety. English, Japanese, German, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and Russian can be selected via menu.

The centrifuge enables fast, efficient separations of sample volumes from 175 µL to 13.5 mL at speeds up to 150,000 RPM and RCFs of more than 1,000,000 x g. Additional instrument features include quiet performance, a customisable interface supporting multiple users, a compact footprint and instant, context-sensitive onboard help.

A comprehensive library of Beckman Coulter micro-ultracentrifuge rotors allows finetuning of research procedures and includes fixed-angle, swinging-bucket and unique near-vertical tube (NVT) models. NVT rotors provide the ability to very quickly perform DNA preps without contaminating the DNA band.

A multilevel approach to biocontainment includes the use of BioSafe tubes, fluid containment annulus rotors and available HEPA filtration. The centrifuge can be used in a biosafety hood and can be operated remotely with an available cabling kit. Magnetic sensors ensure that maximum permitted speed is not exceeded.

Electronic record keeping is supported through password-controlled access, individual user and run history and a USB port that simplifies data export. Also new to the centrifuge is a 24-hour time format option. The micro-ultracentrifuge delivers good performance in such emerging applications as viral-vector gene delivery and nanoparticle research, as well as in methods like protein purification and isolation.
