The Scilogex 91201513 D3024 variable-speed centrifuge spins between 300 and 15,000 rpm (rotations per minute) and is used for spinning down micro-sized cell culture and lab collection samples. It includes a 24-place micro-tube rotor for 2.0 mL tubes which is biocontainment-safe and fully autoclavable, meeting most lab protocols for safety. The centrifuge maintains an internal temperature below 4 degrees Celsius at its maximum speed, which protects the sample from decay and decomposition at higher temperatures. A double cooling chamber design minimizes overheating to the rotor.
The Scilogex D3024 micro-centrifuge has an LCD display, brushless motor, automatic door lock, pulse operation for quick spins, and over-speed detection. It operates on a timer (30 seconds to 99 minutes) or can run continuously for up to 99 minutes. It has a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
The Scilogex D3024 micro-centrifuge spins up to 15,000 rpm in 10 rpm increments or a maximum relative centrifugal force (rcf) of 21,380 x g, and operates at single-phase, 110V/60Hz. It measures 10.4 x 11.0 x 14.3 inches (H x W x D), and weighs 27 lb. (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)
A centrifuge is used to spin fluids of different densities to separate various parts, commonly blood and DNA samples. Centrifuges are composed of the main body or housing and a spinning rotor. Tubes of cellular material suspended in liquid are inserted into the rotor and spun at various speeds to separate components. Centrifuges are used in medical, industrial, and research laboratories, as well as academic and clinical settings.
Scilogex markets medical lab equipment, specifically liquid handling products such as pipettors and bottletop dispensers, and bench-top instruments such as microcentrifuges and vortex mixers. The company was founded in 2008 and is headquartered in Berlin, CT.
