Thermo Introduces Sorvall RC-6 Plus Super-speed Centrifuge
Product News Mar 17, 2006
Thermo Electron Corporation has unveiled the Sorvall® RC-6™ Plus high-speed floor model centrifuge.
Based on Thermo’s Sorvall RC-6 centrifuge platform, this model combines a small footprint, functionality, safety and speed for the efficient harvesting of cells, homogenate clarification, isolation of subcellular fractions (including nucleic acids), and pelleting protein and virus precipitates.
Thermo claims that, the Sorvall RC6 Plus’ increased operating speeds of up to 22,000 rpm and rapid acceleration/deceleration rates give faster separations, enabling users to process more samples in less time.
The Sorvall RC-6 Plus super-speed centrifuge also features an expanded rotor set that now includes continuous flow rotors, as well as new composite rotors.
These advanced rotors not only broaden the range of applications supported by the RC-6 Plus platform, but also simplify preparation procedures by spinning disposable containers at higher speeds.
All Sorvall RC-6 rotors are compatible with the RC-6 Plus centrifuge, as are most Sorvall RC-5 rotors.
Vacuum-free operation is designed to ensure minimal maintenance, sample protection and rotary balance. Optional enhancements include GMP/GLP-compatible data management offering traceability and quality control for biopharmaceutical processing needs.
