New Blue Line Centrifuges from Herolab
The best bench-top centrifuge line just got better and faster.
The Herolab Blue Line centrifuges have recently been updated with significantly higher specifications across the range. With increased maximum speeds and higher g-forces the Blue Line series is now at the forefront of centrifuge technology.
Herolab have been leading the way in centrifuge development for over 37 years. With their high quality and attention to detail a Herolab centrifuge will last for many years with little or no maintenance and downtime. The latest specifications now give the user even greater choice when it comes to selecting the best product for their needs.
Of course with any centrifuge safety is an important consideration and Herolab take this very seriously. For this reason all models have an additional inner guard ring on the stainless steel chamber. The APRIsystem (Automatic Positive Rotor Identification) recognises the rotor itself and checks for the speed setting. In case the speed is selected too high for a particular rotor the machine will automatically reduce the speed setting to the maximum speed possible for the rotor. If any imbalance is detected an automatic cut-off will activate. Additionally, there is a 4-point-lid-fixing, a motorised lid lock, auto lid opening and an emergency lid-lock release.
The Blue line features five Bench-Top models. Both refrigerated and non-refrigerated models are available. Speeds now range from 16,000rpm up to an impressive 30,000 rpm. The g-forces go from 20.865 up to 70.484.
A distinctive blue cover on the centrifuge and a matching blue cover for the rotors signify that the correct components are being used. All models have an identical drive and mostly all of the rotors of the Blue Line can fit in every centrifuge of the range.
New interfaces are being introduced across the Herolab range during 2016 adding a number of new features and making them easier to use.
Says Herolab: “Over the past 37 years we have continually improved our whole range of centrifuges to give our customers the very best in terms of performance, quality and life expectancy. Our large customer base is testament to our achievement to meet these goals”
