Product Details

The Optima TLX Ultracentrifuge features maximum performance capabilities of 657,000 x g and sample volumes ranging from 0.2 mL to 5.1 mL per tube.  The system features include imbalance-tolerant, direct vacuum-encased, and air-cooled drives.  It also has a rotor imbalance detection, moisture-purging vacuum pump, fixed angle rotors with a fluid-containment annulus, and programmability with up to five step changes.  It has ten selectable acceleration to deceleration rates and a microprocessor control.  It is an ultracentrifuge for maximum performance and convenience.

Additional features include:

  • Reduced separation time
  • Improved resolution
  • Greater volume Improves work flow and productivity
  • Reduces time spent transporting samples
  • Occupies less space
  • Chlorofluorocarbon-free, solid-state temperature control systems
  • Automatic rotor identification
