In the modern laboratory or doctor's office, a centrifuge is a key piece of equipment. The centrifuge's ability to separate liquids into more basic components is important in the medical field. LW Scientific manufactures centrifuges under the Universal brand. They have begun to manufacture the new Model LWS-UNC-06SD-15T3, which offers a range of capabilities.
LW Scientific UNIVERSAL 3500 rpm Variable Speed (6 x 3-15ml) Horizontal Rotor Centrifuge, UNC-06SD-15T3 offers a range of speed to be able to process a variety of fluids. This model is marketed as being ideal for blood, urine or other fluid separation. Two different rotor options are offered. The centrifuge generates up to 1840g with the swing out rotor or 1350g with the fixed angle rotor.
LW Scientific UNIVERSAL 3500 rpm Variable Speed 6 x 3-15ml Horizontal Rotor Centrifuge can process multiple tubes of liquid at one time. It has up to six slots, which can hold anywhere from a 3ml to a 15 ml tubes of liquid.
A 12 volt brushless electric motor powers the centrifuge. The centrifuge comes with the ability to run on either a 110 volt or 220 volt wall outlet. The power adapter automatically switches to conform to either a 110 volt or 220 volt outlet. The motor generates between 800 to 3500 revolutions per minute.
The centrifuge has a digital control. This gives the UNC-06SD-15T3 the ability to remember up to four prior speeds that were run. The computer also gives an accurate measurement of speed to calculate g-force, so your liquid is separated properly. You may program in a time and speed to achieve the specific conditions necessary for your sample to separate.
Size was a consideration when designing the centrifuge. This model was meant to be desk top friendly and compact. It is 10.65 inches tall, 14.5 inches long and 14.5 inches wide. The instrument only weighs 11.6 lbs, so it can be portable if necessary.
