Prior to scanning a microarray slide, it is necessary to remove all wash buffer. This drying step is critical to obtain the best possible scanning results. Labnet's new Slide Spinner centrifuge dries 2 microarray slides within 10 seconds for superior quality imaging and screening. Simply insert your slides into the cassettes and close the lid. Slide Spinners quickly accelerate to 4800 rpm, the optimal speed for quick drying without any splashing. Open the lid and the rotor comes to a stop and the dry slides can be removed. The cassettes catch all of the liquid, and can easily be removed, and the liquid can be poured out.
The construction features a translucent lid that pivots on a durable stainless steel hinge pin. A switch on the side of the centrifuge starts and stops operation. Alternatively, when the switch is in the "on" position, the centrifuge can be started and stopped by simply opening and closing the lid. Cassettes are reusable; replacement cassettes are also available separately.
Note: To order 230V units, simply add -230V to the end of the catalog number. Specify cord type by adding -EU, -UK or -AU.
