Press Release Summary:
Offered with 10 rotor options, non-refrigerated Z 233 M-2 and refrigerated Z 233 MK-2 utilize microprocessor that controls all run parameters, including accel/decel rate. Hybrid control panel provides knobs for setting parameters and digital displays for viewing values. Speed can be set in rpm or g-force, and conversion program allows both to be viewed during run. Systems use brushless motors capable of attaining speeds to 14,000 rpm/18,620 x g.
Original Press Release:
Brushless, High-Speed Microcentrifuges, Z 233 M-2 and Z 233 MK-2
The Z233 series of microcentrifuges offer intelligent control, high speed, and a variety of rotor options.
These updated centrifuges feature brushless motors capable of attaining speeds of 14,000 rpm/18,620 x g. A microprocessor controls all run parameters including rate of acceleration and deceleration. The user friendly, hybrid control panel includes easy to turn knobs for setting parameters and large digital displays for viewing values. Speed can be set in either rpm or g-force, and a conversion program allows both to be viewed during a run.
The space saving design of the Z 233 MK-2 requires a minimal amount of bench space, not much more than its non-refrigerated counterpart, the Z 233 M-2. The powerful refrigeration system in the Z 233 MK-2 can maintain samples at or below 0 °C, even during prolonged runs.
Ten rotors are available with capacities up to 44 x 1.5 mL tubes and 64 x 0.5 mL tubes. The high capacity 48-place combination rotor accepts 24 x 1.5 mL and 24 x 0.5 mL tubes.
