Convenient 1L capacity and availability in both ventilated (for separations at ambient temperatures) and refrigerated versions. The CFC-free refrigerated version is ideal for handling temperature-sensitive sample processing between -10° and +40°C and features a Pre-Cooling function with direct button.

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 capability. SMARTSpin® 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.
