The Thermo Scientific SL 40 Centrifuge Series offers exceptional capacity and ergonomic features while delivering market-leading capabilities and outstanding value for routine sample processing on the benchtop. Advanced ergonomic design featuring patented innovations for safe, simple and comfortable daily operation. Compact, space-saving size optimizes work area while ergonomic height and curved design ensure easy sample loading/unloading and cleaning. Outstanding energy efficiency-- up to 40% energy consumption savings on industry standard protocols, such as standard blood separation or conical tubes processing. Centrifuges feature a convenient 3L capacity, with the ability to process over 40% more 50mL conical tubes or 100% more blood tubes with certified biocontainment sealing than competitive models and is available in both ventilated and refrigerated versions. The refrigerated version is ideal for handling temperature-sensitive sample processing between -10° and +40°C.
Easy-to-use intuitive controls simplify operation and provide detailed information on a wide range of operating parameters and processing status for optimal performance. Patented motorized lid latch enables one finger downward motion for easiest closing and locking of centrifuge lid, even on tall benches. Auto-Lock® III Rotor Secure locking system allows easy push-button installation and exchange of rotors while saving time switching between applications. Easy access to rotor chamber for quick cleaning, a healthier working environment and longer unit life. CAMR-certified ClickSeal® Bucket Sealing System seals with a snap and eliminates screw caps and complicated clips. Glove-friendly, one-handed open/close. SMARTSpin® Technology Advanced rotor management system maximizes acceleration, braking and residual load imbalance for each rotor and bucket option while optimizing safety and improving separations.
A wide range of rotors are available for your daily routine processing requirements. Maximize performance with lighter-weight Thermo Scientific Fiberlite® carbon fiber rotors that offer versatility, speed and robust, corrosion-free design. All rotors and adapters are sold separately.
