Refrigerated centrifuge

Sunday, 13 October, 2002 | Supplied by: AVM Lab Supplies & Service

The Falcon 6/300 Refrigerated centrifuge features a choice of two windshielded swing out rotors - the standard aluminium rotor and a high performance rotor.

The standard rotor has a maximum speed of 4700 rpm which allows a creditable 4964 g. However, the high capacity/high performance 4 x 750 mL windshielded rotor has a maximum speed of 5600 rpm which gives 7047 g. This means that protocols needing a minimum of 6000 g in a large capacity swing out rotor can now be performed on the bench.

The temperature can be selected from a range of -9 to +40°C. A precool facility means that the centrifuge can be cooled to the required temperature before use.

The Falcon centrifuge incorporates the MSE automatic rotor identification system which ensures that the centrifuge recognises the rotor in use and prevents it from being used beyond its maximum speed. Once the centrifuge has identified the rotor it can also work out the 'g' force at any set speed.

Operation of the centrifuge is fully programmable with a memory capability of up to 49 different programs. This includes all parameters such as speed (or 'g' force), time, acceleration rate, brake rate and temperature control.

Most centrifuge work can be accomplished using the 4 x 750 mL windshielded rotors as these are available with a wide range of adapters that fit into the 750 mL buckets. Microtitre carriers and special buckets for 250 mL tissue culture bottles are available on the 4 x 750 mL non-windshielded rotor only. The 8 x 200 mL swing out rotor and various angle rotors complete the full list of accessories.
