With a maximum capacity of 12 L, the centrifuge can process up to 12 blood bag systems (up to 500 mL) or six 2000 mL Thermo Scientific Nalgene bio-bottles. Run-to-run reproducibility is ensured by the Accumulated Centrifugal Effect™ (ACE) function, which automatically compensates for any variations in acceleration due to full or partial rotor loading. Precise control of acceleration and deceleration rates ensures that sample integrity is retained, even during delicate low-speed pelleting applications.

Thermo Scientific Sorvall RC 12BP Plus Centrifuge

With a comprehensive suite of proven accessories, the Sorvall® RC 12BP Plus centrifuge can be optimized through the incorporation of the Thermo Scientific H-12000 large-capacity swinging bucket rotors. Capable of spinning 2 L Nalgene® polypropylene bottles, which have a graduated wide mouth for simple decanting, re-suspensions and pellet removal, these rotors provide class-leading capacities. In addition, the new optional Thermo Scientific Centri-Log data collection software is a paperless method of increasing quality control, process traceability and component tracking. Compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) guidelines ensures sample security and integrity. Easy and intuitive set-up and operation are facilitated by the user-friendly interface, which incorporates a 15-program memory with one-touch recall of commonly used protocols. Furthermore, a security key prevents unauthorized access.
