Carve out some time for the brand new, low-speed clinical centrifuge from Scilogex. You’ll be thankful you did...
Once you feast your eyes on these new, streamlined centrifuges, equipped with all the features you need at a far more economical price point, there’ll be no going back to your old one.
The new Scilogex SCI506 Clinical Centrifuge
This low-rotor speed centrifuge comes with all the latest features at value pricing. It’s...
- Functional: With a fixed angle rotor, speed range from 300 - 5,000 RPM, and two deceleration speeds to suit different samples, particles and applications
- Versatile: Accommodating up to 6 samples, in 15mL, 10mL, 7mL or 5mL sample tubes (ideal for urine or blood tubes)
- Adjustable: With a centrifugal force of 300 - 5000 RPM.
- Low maintenance: With automatic lid-lock release for quick rotor removal and easy cleaning, and a hassle-free brushless DC motor
- Built well: And comes with a 2 year warranty to back that
- Ideal for your workspace: The perfect laboratory centrifuge. With a compact footprint and quiet operation, this benchtop centrifuge won't take up precious work space.
- Easy to use: With intuitive programing and large, brightly-lit screens
The SCI506 makes centrifugation simple and affordable.
How do centrifuges work?
Essential for many labs, clinics and research institutes, a centrifuge is a machine that uses centrifugal force to separate the particles of a sample based on their density.
Upon rotation, the centrifuge creates a strong centrifugal force. It quickly delivers results by separating the sample (even though separation would eventually occur naturally with Earth's gravity, the centrifuge speeds up the process - significantly!).
There are many different types of centrifuges, depending on use and varying by rotor design, including the:
- bench-top centrifuge
- high speed centrifuge
Centrifugation refers to the process of accelerating the natural process of separation by concentrating natural forces that act on particles of different densities. It separates particles by density in the test tube.
There are two methods by which centrifugation can occur: filtration or sedimentation. Filtration uses a mesh screen to hold back the solid components of a sample, while allowing the liquid components to move through. This doesn't work for all samples, though. For example, filtering won't work to centrifuge blood samples because the blood particles are too small.
Regardless of your method, the particles are suspended in liquid, as the centrifuge separates them due to centrifugal force. As sample tubes (e.g. a blood tube) as spun in a circle, the centrifugal force pushes objects outward, toward the tip of the sample tube.
Why labs, hospitals and research institutes love the SCI506
The Scilogex SCI506s are the perfect clinical centrifuges for customers working in hospitals, clinics and research institutes. It’s designed to separate common samples, like blood or urine samples, just as well as products twice the cost.
