Question
  • 1 What is the function of the Auto-lid (AUTO LID)?

    When Auto-lid is on, the lid of the centrifuge will open automatically at the end of a run.

  • 2 What is the function of the count up (CP)?

    This will tell you how long your sample stays in the chamber after a run has been completed.

  • 3 What does Short/Spin do?

    The Short/Spin button starts the centrifuge running and it will continue to run as long as the button is held down. A short spin is usually used to collect the liquid in the tube. The short spin speed can be set in the System.

  • 4 How is the Short/Spin speed adjusted?

    The Short/Spin speed is set via the System. Press “Speed” on the main screen. Turn the knob to the required speed and press enter. Then find the “SPIN” function in the “System” and select “On” to confirm.

  • 5 Why is it necessary to hold the lid for half a second for the latch to close?

    This is a safety feature to ensure that the lid has been closed intentionally.

  • 6 I feel air flow underneath the lid during centrifugation. Is that normal?

    Yes, it is normal. There is a cooling fan in the lid and the chamber is sealed when the lid is locked.

  • 7 I can hear the fan running when the centrifuge is in idle mode, is that normal?

    Yes, it is normal. The fan in the centrifuge cools the chamber to prevent heat accumulation. The fan continues to run at a low speed when the rotor is not running.

  • 8 What is the purpose of the ventilation slits on the top of the centrifuge lid?

    These slits allow excessive heat to escape when the centrifuge is running at a high speed and this keeps the heat in the chamber to a minimum.

  • 9 Can I change the speed and time during centrifugation?

    Yes, you can change the speed and time during centrifugation.

  • 10 Can I do a slow (soft) ramp in this centrifuge?

    Yes. You can set the centrifuge to 9 different ramps. The acceleration and deceleration times can be set from 15 to 90 seconds.
