The CentraSpin™ package from HELMER includes the Hettich Universal 32 centrifuge, four aerosol-tight swinging buckets with inserts, and a four-place, swing-out rotor. The centrifuge is used for many lab applications, including specimen receiving and sample processing. A refrigerated package also is available as CentraSpin-R.
The CentraSpin has a total spin capacity of 18 tubes at one time (10 each 13 x 75/100 mm and 8 each 16 x 75/100 mm). Capacity can be increased by adding two optional inserts for either tube size, and the digital control panel stores and recalls three complete programs. RPM and RCF can be input in increments of 10, and run time is programmable in minutes and seconds.
The Universal 32 centrifuge features a brushless drive, programmable run-up and run-down time, and an impulse key for short spins. The housing is constructed of metal with a stainless steel chamber, and an automatic rotor recognition ensures proper rotor usage. Safety features include lid lock and hold, emergency lid release, and imbalance switch off. Protection is provided against motor and chamber overheating.
