The UNIVERSAL 320 is particularly easy to use:
- The operating and display elements of the centrifuge are of ergonomic design
- The current status of all parameters is displayed while the centrifuge is running
- 10 programmable memories
- Switching between the display of speed and the RCF (relative centrifugal force) after entry of the rotor radius in mm
- Parameters can be quickly and easily entered and changed using the rotary button
The UNIVERSAL 320 contributes to safe working procedures in the laboratory. It has the following features:
- Lid locking
- Emergency lid release
- Motor overheating protection
- Imbalance shut off
- Automatic rotor recognition
- Lid dropping protection
The UNIVERSAL 320 is a practical benchtop centrifuge with an ergonomic design. It is manufactured from high-quality components and has the following features:
- Metal casing
- Metal lid
- Centrifugation chamber of rust-free stainless steel
- View port in the lid
A maximum RCF of 21,382 can be achieved with microlitre tubes. Vessels with higher volumes (up to 85 ml) can also be centrifuged thanks to the high performance of the centrifuge. Bacteria and yeasts are rapidly sedimented at an RCF of 9,509.
It is possible to choose between eleven swing-out rotors, seven fixed-angle rotors and one haematocrit rotor. The fixed-angle and swing-out rotors with accessories are suitable for virtually all applications in everyday use in industrial, research and clinical laboratories.
Safety and comfort in the workplace using carriers with a single-hand clamp lock
The clamp lock of the 1560 carrier can be operated without difficulty with just one hand. The carrier can be comfortably carried by the clamp whether the lid is in place or not since, in contrast to the products from other manufacturers, the clamp is mounted on the carrier and not on the lid. If the lid is in place, the carrier can not only be carried with ease, it is also safe to transport.
- With the clamp in the “open” position the lid can be easily fitted and removed.
- With the clamp in the central position the carrier is sealed to prevent aerosol formation and can be safely carried to the centrifuge, workbench or another working space.
- With the clamp in the “close” position the carrier can be centrifuged without aerosol formation. The absence of aerosols has been verified by the TÜV in accordance with DIN EN 61010, Part 2-020.
The centrifuge is ideal for the centrifugation of samples in the following fields:
- Medicine Clinical chemistry, cytology
