Fiberlite rotors added to centrifuge selection
Beckman Coulter announces the addition of two new Fiberlite rotors to its selection for the Avanti J series high-performance centrifuge systems
lThe comprehensive list of choices for these models now includes the new lightweight carbon fibre rotors, the Avanti JLA-Lite high-performance rotors, as well as traditional aluminium offerings.
The new 14x50mL conical fixed-angle and 6x250mL fixed-angle Fiberlite rotors were co-developed by Beckman Coulter and Piramoon Technologies and have been specially tested to ensure optimal performance on the Avanti line of centrifuges.
These lightweight carbon composite rotors are fully compatible with Beckman Coulter's exclusive rotor identification system.
Both new rotors are offered with a full complement of adapters.
The new 14x50ml rotor spins 14 50ml conical tubes up to 33,500g.
The 6x250ml rotor accommodates tubes from 3ml to 250ml and can reach forces up to 30,000g.
"These new offerings round out our complete selection of high-performing rotors for the Avanti series," explained Barbara Keeler, business manager for Beckman Coulter.
"We now offer a more comprehensive rotor library, giving Avanti customers many application options".
Beckman Coulter's Avanti J Series high-performance, high-capacity centrifuges are ideal for harvesting, separating, lysing and pelleting of particles including DNA, proteins and viruses.
The Avanti J-26S high performance centrifuge claims to combine important environmental benefits with increased safety features.
The MLA-50 High-Capacity Rotor for the Optima MAX-XP Tabletop Ultracentrifuge from Beckman Coulter offers a 194ml capacity that allows more sample to be processed per run.
First specially designed rotor will spin 6x500ml at 10,000rpm, ideal for clarifying lysates, separating tissue homogenates and pelleting bacteria and tissue culture cells
Incorporating adapters for direct centrifugation of cell culture flasks, eliminating an entire step in the cell culture process, this machine automatically detects and corrects imbalance
These multipurpose instruments are up to 25 cm thinner than other comparable centrifuges on the market today, providing a space-saving solution for smaller laboratories
