The tradition dates back to 1918, when Paul Couprie produced the first centrifuge in France
Since Firlabo acquired the original Company in 1985, it has continued to upgrade and improve the safety and efficiency of its centrifuge range.
These centrifuges come with microprocessor control, 18 months warranty and CE label, all at a very realistic price.
The 10 operator-controlled programmes allow time settings, as well as acceleration and braking rates.
The display shows speed in "g" or "rpm" and provides access to useful technical data which is stored in the memory.
The microprocessor controls acceleration and deceleration rates, speed in rpm or G force, and a memory which can repeat specific programmes to give reproducible results.
The bowl is manufactured from stainless steel and the swing - out rotor has sealed buckets. A wide variety of inserts allow most commonly available tubes to be used.
SW9 has a maximum capacity of 4 X 250ml tubes, or 28 X 15ml Vacutainer tubes.
SW12 has a maximum capacity of 4 X 750ml tubes, or 76 X 10ml Vacutainer tubes.
There are also 3 angle heads with places for 8, 10, or 20 tubes
On lowering the lid, an assisted closing system pulls the lid down and locks it. When the cycle is finished, hydraulic jacks assist in opening the lid. The powerful induction motor runs quietly and reduces servicing intervals.
Both models are designed for bench mounting and are available with or without refrigeration.
With refrigeration, the centrifuges have a temperature range of -10°C to 40°C
If bench space is limited, both SW9 and SW12 can be mounted onto a wheeled trolley.
The refrigeration unit can be built-in to the trolley to make it a self contained, mobile unit.
The high trolley puts the centrifuge at bench height and the low trolley allows the centrifuge to be rolled under the bench.
