Centrifuges

Tubes references

The tubes searching is a simple process, the main difficulty is produced because of not all the tubes are proper for centrifuges, due to their properties or measures.

Ortoalresa offers solutions to that situation with multiple options: glassware tubes, polypropilen, politen, different bottom round and flat, and shapes adapted to different standards, and mostly offer some solution for your accessories.

Choose the right equipment

Dimensions of tubes and maximum capacity: Some equipment applies a high RCF to the sample and its holders. We remind you that you should check the manufacturing specifications of the tubes. The maximum RCF which can be applied to glassware is 3000 xg.

 

Equipment for general applications:

Equipment for special applications:

Those for laboratory exclusive use, which largely follow defined procedures and require standardized and commonly used sample holders. Those applications developed outside the laboratory setting, which largely follow specific procedures, standardized in some cases, and which require special sample holders.

INDUSTRY



LIFE SCIENCIES


Centrifuges have come out of laboratories and now begin to be a part of production processes. This has resulted in them being present in highly different environments such as kitchens, operating theatres, power plants or centres for the recuperation of protected species.

In this section, you will find equipment for these types of applications that have a common characteristic: They follow specific standardised processes and the type of sample support is defined in the regulations given below. For any question about the tubes considered frequent, please refer to our chart on page 13.

Thus, we find applications that require butyrometers, such as for determination of fat in dairy products, others that require capillary tubes, such as for the determination of the microhematocrit values, others that require tubes compliant with ASTM regulations for cylindrical-conical tubes measuring 6”, 8”, etc.

Nevertheless, this diversity of applications still allows us to make a second division in our line of “special applications”: centrifuges for industrial applications and centrifuges for life sciences applications.

General applications

Mini: Minicen: for work with microtubes.

Small: Microcen 24: for general use in all kind of laboratories.

Microcentrifuges: Biocen 22 y Biocen 22 R: High speed, centrifuge for microtubes and microhematocrit with application in Biotechnology, Nanotechnology…

Universal: Unicen 21, Digicen 21, Digicen 21 R: versatility, applicable in most laboratories (blood test…).

High capacity: Consul 22, Consul 22 R, Digtor 22, Digtor 22 R, Dilitcen 22: for water, food, beverage, oil and blood tests, biotechnology…

Floor standing: Magnus 22 y Magnus 22 R: blood bags.

Ortoalresa has a wide range of centrifuges for all applications. Our users are from a very wide range of laboratories, from the most elementary, for hospital applications and clinical analysis labs, to microbiology departments, research centres, quality control labs for drinks, food and different production processes, etc.

This wide range of users has led us to segment our line of centrifuges starting with an essential criterion: The tubes. Thus, we define the section of centrifuges for “general applications” such as those that use standard and commonly used tubes. For any query about tubes considered frequently used, you can check our section “tubes references” .

For this type of application, the differentiating elements are parameters such as RPM, RCF, volume or number of tubes and the need for temperature control. These parameters are decisive when choosing equipment, in the “guide for choosing equipment” you will find more information on this issue.

Below you can find our centrifuges for “general applications” organized according to equipment size, as well as the two versions (force ventilated and refrigerated) if available. After their datasheet, you will find a chart with the accessories available in each series.

All centrifuges in this section have these characteristics in common:

Microprocessor control.

Maintenance-free induction motor (brushless).

List of rotors in memory.

Noise produced: less than 60 dB.

Buttons for controlling on/off, lid opening and short cycle with adjustable speed.

Possibility to lock /modify RPM /RCF while in operation.

Programmable automatic opening of lid (non-refrigerated models)

Last used parameters maintained in memory.

Protection against excess speed.

Lid with security system:

– Automatic lid lock system, motorized, and emergency lid-lock release.

– Locked and protected against opening while in operation.

– Lid dropping protection.

– Port in the lid for calibration and operation checking.

Unbalance detection and switch off.

Protection safety ring between the centrifugation chamber and the housing.

Stainless steel centrifugation chamber (easy to clean).

Rotors removable with the lid closed.

Autoclavable rotors and reducers, easy to install by the user.
