Full nameBeckman-Coulter Optima-90 (SN CXE14C01)
Description

Ultracentrifugation is used to separate particles or organelles by applying extremely high g-forces (>20000 g, up to 600000g!). Ultracentrifuges are used in runs with fixed-angle, vertical or swing-out rotors carrying buckets (always use all buckets). This machine purchased in 2014  is dedicated to be used with a fixed angle 90Ti rotor. When bottles are applied, take into account that the max speed is 65 krpm for 362000 g.

  • GET FIRST SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE GI ASSISTANT
  • USE CLEAN AND DRY ROTORS AND CLEAN THE ROTOR AFTER USE
  • BALANCE THE TUBES OF OPPOSITE CAVITIES OR BUCKETS VERY ACCURATELY
