Beckman Coulter Life Sciences Avanti JXN-30 centrifuge

Wednesday, 04 February, 2015 | Supplied by: Beckman Coulter Australia

Beckman Coulter Life Sciences expands its range of high-performance centrifuges with the Avanti JXN-30. The product improves workflow by delivering high-throughput performance and an increasingly varied separations capability.

The MobileFuge remote application enables users to access all types of data, carrying out remote monitoring, control and error handling via networks and mobile devices. Available for Apple iOS and Android devices, its data management capability combines with the network and MobileFuge applications to make the centrifuge especially suitable for shared lab environments.

Recycled resin is incorporated in the outer panelling of the centrifuge, and each instrument contains up to 3.4 kg of recycled PET bottles. A friction reduction system (FRS) enables the device to run quietly, increasing energy efficiency by reducing the air in the chamber. This in turn reduces rotor friction, minimising the effort required to accelerate and to maintain speed. The FRS also lowers the amount of heat present in the chamber, reducing refrigeration system usage.

The BioCertified fixed-angle and swinging-bucket rotors offer a range of biosafety options, including a dual-locking lid configuration for workflows that include biohazardous samples. This maintains biocontainment when removing and transporting the rotor to a containment hood. Centrifuge rotors range in capacity from 360 mL to 4 L, and some are independently certified to contain liquids and aerosols.

Built-in safety features ensure that no individual rotor exceeds the maximum speed permitted. A low work surface makes rotor handling easier with a foot pedal for hands-free lid opening. Large footpads allow the unit to be used unanchored. Interface options enable users to customise the touch screen with pictures, backgrounds, avatars and sounds. An optional pharmaceutical-grade sterilising filter system, located on the unit exterior for ease of access, also enhances biosafety.
