Thermo Introduces the Sorvall WX Ultra Centrifuge Series
Product News Apr 28, 2006
Thermo Electron Corporation has unveiled the Sorvall® WX Ultra Series floor standing centrifuges.
Available in 80k, 90k and 100k rpm models, the ultracentrifuges pack technology and simple operation into a sleek, compact design for cell and molecular biology, genomic, and proteomic applications.
The small footprint, reduced deck height, and whisper-quiet operation make these centrifuges ideal for direct placement in the lab, while compatibility with the majority of ultra-rotors makes the Sorvall WX Ultra Series easy to integrate.
Based on Thermo’s Sorvall centrifuge platform, the Sorvall WX Ultra Series centrifuges can generate RCF’s up to 802,010 x g.
An intuitive, color touch-screen interface is designed to enable straightforward protocol set-up and storage.
Safety and time-management are significantly improved through a series of innovative features, such as rotor life management, run scheduling, automatic rpm/rcf conversion, step-mode operation and delayed start/stop functions.
Advanced design has also been applied to the broad range of rotors and tubes. The tubes can be visually balanced allowing accelerated sample preparation. The rotors ensure secure loading.
The Sorvall WX series centrifuges can also utilize a continuous-flow rotor allowing the processing of many liters per hour, making the centrifuges ideal for biotechnology and pharmaceutical scale-up processes.
The Sorvall WX series is designed to be environmentally friendly with reduced power consumption and CFC/HCFC-free refrigeration. Security is assured by optional extras such as a user password lockout facility and HEPA filters.
Together with Thermo’s existing Sorvall Discovery M120SE and M150SE micro-ultracentrifuges, as well as the RC-6 Plus super-speed centrifuge, the Sorvall WX Ultra series completes a comprehensive range of high-speed centrifuge solutions from Thermo.
The Sorvall WX Ultra series centrifuges will be showcased at Conventional Hall B1 booth #105/204 at Analytica® 2006 (20th International Trade Fair and Analytica Conference), which will be held April 25-28th, 2006 at The New Munich Trade Fair Centre, Germany.
