The Grant Bio Multi-spin PCV-3000 is a highly versatile and efficient variable-speed combined centrifuge/vortex mixer for programmed sequences of spin and mix operations or for independent centrifuging and vortex-mixing of multiple microtubes and 0.2 ml strips.
With tubes positioned in the rotor throughout the operation, Multi-spin can complete programmed spin-mix-spin sequences in significantly less time compared to individual instruments, typically 4 minutes for 100 tubes compared to 35 minutes with individual instruments - a dramatic time and cost saving.
In addition, spinning samples before and after mixing allows lower reagent volumes to be used. Because of its powerful G force and accurate control of spin and mix parameters, the Multi-spin can be used with volumes as low as 5 uL.
Spin speed: up to 3000 rpm.
Timed spin operation: 1 second to 99 minutes, with automatic switch-off.
Timed vortex mixing: 1 to 20 seconds, with automatic switch-off.
Three-stage adjustment for vortex mixing speed.
Choice of interchangeable rotors for different microtube sizes/combinations and for 0.2 ml strips.
Multi-spin enables consecutive spin and mix phases of multiple tubes - tubes are loaded into the rotor for spinning and remain in position for vortex mixing, saving time and labour. In addition, lower reagent volumes can be used, providing a further saving.
Simple push-buttons and a clear 2-line LCD status display enable accurate and repeatable setting of spin and mix levels and times.
Spin and mix phases can be linked in sequences which can be repeated up to 999 times.
The Multi-spin is supplied as standard with two interchangeable rotors for 12 and 24 microtubes. Optional accessory rotors allow for quick and easy changes of application.
A safety interlock stops the rotor when the lid is opened to ensure you and your workplace remain safe.
Compact design and extremely quiet in operation - fits neatly and unobtrusively into the workspace.
