Labnet Prism™ and Prism™ R Microcentrifuges
The Prism™ and Prism™ R centrifuges feature powerful brushless motors and an intuitive control panel.
The Prism R is a refrigerated unit with cooling capacity to spare. Its powerful refrigeration system maintains temperatures as low as -10°C and can reach 4°C in less than 8 minutes. The ambient Prism unit has been designed to keep sample temperature rise to a minimum, even when operating at maximum speed. Speed in rpm or rcf and run time can be quickly and accurately set and actual speed and time remaining are displayed during a run. Operation of the units can be timed, continuous or momentary, using the quick button. The control panel with a single large control knob and easy to read Liquid Crystal Display provides an intuitive interface for operation. Vibration free operation is ensured by an isolation system. In the event of a significant imbalance, operation of the centrifuge is automatically stopped. Deceleration at the end of a run is very quick, but will not disrupt samples.
Both of these centrifuges are supplied with a uniquely designed 24 x 1.5/2.0 mL rotor that allows easy access to the tops of the sample tubes. The individual tube slots in the solid rotor support tubes along their length to eliminate tube deformation or cracking even at the highest speed settings.In the event of a tube failure, tube pieces and samples are contained within the sample well. The rotor is designed to hold all standard 1.5/2.0 mL tubes (both conical bottom and skirted), and the snap on lid offers space for micro-filter filters that fit into the tops of the tubes. Adapters are available for processing smaller tubes, and our exclusive StripSpin Adapter fits onto the top of the rotor for centrifuging standard 8-tube PCR strips. The rotor is seated on a tapered shaft which facilitates easy removal for cleaning and autoclaving.
The Prism R Microcentrifuge speed can be set in rpm, up to 13,500 rpm in increments of 100 rpm, or rcf, up to 17,135 x g in increments of 100 x g. The powerful refrigeration system maintains temperatures as low as -10°C and is designed to reach 4°C (from room temperature) in less than 8 minutes. The Prism Microcentrifuge offers a maximum speed of 15,000 rpm / 21,200 x g for very efficient separation of nucleic acids and protein samples. Quick acceleration and deceleration reduce processing time, and our unique multi-flow air cooling system keeps the rotor and samples close to ambient temperature with minimal noise.
