Keeping temperature-sensitive samples cool during centrifugation is critical for optimised and reproducible results01 February, 2021
By maintaining temperature-sensitive biomolecules within their samples at a cool temperature (usually 4°C) throughout the centrifugation process, results are optimised and a high level of reproducibility is achievable.
The modular, closed cell therapy processing system enables scalable cell therapy development and manufacturing. The system facilitates workflows from research through to GMP clinical development and commercial manufacturing.
Featuring an ergonomically enhanced, novel industrial design complemented by a wide range of rotors, the Thermo Scientific General Purpose Pro Centrifuge Series has been developed to deliver a safe and regulatory-compliant benchtop separation solution to meet an array of application needs.
Beckman Coulter's DxA 5000 total laboratory automation solution has achieved European CE Mark and China Food and Drug Administration approval. The product is designed to deliver rapid and consistent turnaround time, provide comprehensive pre-analytical sample quality detection, and reduce the number of manual processing steps to improve laboratory efficiency.
Eppendorf has introduced the high-capacity fixed-angle Rotor FA-6x250 for up to 6 x 250 mL bottles. The Rotor FA-6x250 extends the application range of the large benchtop Centrifuges 5910 R and 5920 R, which encompasses harvesting of bacteria, algae and yeast, as well as mammalian cells, in vessels up to 250 mL.
The Thermo Fisher Scientific SpeedVac vacuum concentrators offer a library of pre-programmed protocols, while also allowing users to create custom programs, for fast evaporation of a broad range of solvents.
Biosan's self-contained aspiration systems, the FTA-1 and FTA-2i, are designed for the removal of supernatants from microtest tubes during DNA/RNA purification and other centrifugation steps, as well as for cell culture aspiration in biological safety cabinets.
Featuring a two-in-one hybrid rotor with interchangeable fixed-angle and swinging buckets, the Thermo Scientific Medifuge benchtop centrifuge provides application-specific flexibility.
The 16 x 500 mL capacity Thermo Scientific Sorvall BP 8 and 16 blood banking centrifuges are designed to maximise productivity for blood processing centres by offering an increased capacity that is said to exceed legacy systems by 33% while maintaining previously validated protocols.
Beckman Coulter's upgraded Optima AUC returns analytical ultracentrifugation to the forefront of analysis by offering powerful optics that help provide reproducible data, furthering research's validity and success.
The National Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility has become the only geotechnical modelling facility in the world that operates three centrifuges, welcoming a third 26-tonne fixed-beam centrifuge into its Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre building.
The refrigerated Centrifuge 5920 R from Eppendorf delivers high capacity in a compact and ergonomic product design. It has similar dimensions as other refrigerated 3 L models and yet features a capacity of up to 4 x 1000 mL, thus making it a suitable instrument for high-throughput applications.
When the Gyrozen 416 centrifuge is configured with the optional swing-out rotor and 4 x 100 mL sealed buckets, operator safety is ensured as the sealing system provides protection from hazardous aerosols and spillage.
Thermoline's Dynafuge range of centrifuges is targeted towards many different industries, including research, hospitals, veterinary, education and high-end food and drink preparation.
The CM-50MP MiniPrep Master, from ELMI, is a vortexing high-speed centrifuge which is programmable for all of the steps in a nucleic acid or protein purification process.
