Process a range of general purpose applications including cell culture, microplate, bioproduction, blood separation and microbiology with the Thermo Scientific Heraeus Multifuge X3 Centrifuge Series.
Featuring industry-leading throughput and energy-efficient operation, this series can process up to 40% more conical tubes in swing-out rotor configuration and 100% more in fixed-angle configuration. A broad range of rotors and adapters, including lightweight Thermo Scientific Fiberlite carbon fiber rotors, handle diverse laboratory applications.
- System offers intuitive control panel and digital display.
- Detailed operation information, including display of set and actual parameters, maximize run performance and temperature accuracy for improved sample protection.
- User can easily adjust speed, time and temperature, even during the run, with convenient keyboard for direct input.
- Innovative lid locking technology enables one finger downward motion for easiest closing and locking of centrifuge lid, even on tall benches with optional automatic lid opening.
- Double temperature management system displays the air temperature in the chamber as well as the sample temperature, ensuring accurate control of the sample temperature during the run.
Thermo Scientific Auto-Lock III Rotor System
- Secure locking system allows easy push-button installation and exchange of rotors.
- System saves time in switch between applications.
- User has easy access to the chamber, enabling quick cleaning, a healthier working environment and longer unit life.
Thermo Scientific ClickSeal Bucket Sealing System
- Biocontainment system that seals with a snap; eliminating screw caps and complicated clips
- Glove-friendly, one-handed open/close capability
- Certified by CAMR in Porton Down, UK
Thermo Scientific SMARTSpin Technology
- Advanced rotor management system maximizes acceleration, braking and residual load imbalance for each rotor and bucket option
- System optimizes safety and improves separations
- Compact size conserves workspace.
- Ergonomic height and curved design ensure comfortable sample handling and cleaning of unit.
Design saves up to 40% of energy on industry standard protocols, such as blood separations or conical-tube processing.
