Product Announcement from Labconco Corporation
Refrigerated CentriVap Benchtop Centrifugal Concentrator processes samples that are heat sensitive such as RNA and other proteins which are subject to degradation by the heat supplied by friction. The exclusive feature of adding refrigeration the new CentriVap cools samples to -4ºC to protect them from the effects of heat. A larger chamber holds more samples for greater throughput. A microprocessor-controlled 300-watt heater speeds evaporation with a constant amount of heat up to 100º C in one degree increments. The Quick-Start™ One Button Start up activates the rotor, heater, timer and vacuum pump. The memory can store up to 9 user-set programs. The Quick-Stop™ system stops the rotor and vacuum pump and bleeds air into the chamber within seconds. An audible alarm signals completion of set point run time. A variety of rotors is offered that hold as many as148 small samples at once. A microtiter plate rotor holds two deep well or four standard plates. The optional CentriZap™ Strobe Light allows samples to be viewed while spinning.
