Beckman Coulter Type VTi 50 Rotor
The Beckman Coulter VTi 50 ultracentrifuge rotor is designed for centrifuging extremely small particles. Vertical-tube and near-vertical tube rotors are especially useful for isopycnic banding and rate zonal experiments. Some V and NV rotors also have fluted bodies, which eliminates unnecessary weight and minimizes stress on the rotor body. The VTi 50 is made of titanium and thus both stronger and more resistant to chemicals than either aluminum composite or fiber composite rotors. The exterior surfaces are finished with black polyurethane paint. The Beckman VTi50 rotor has a capacity of 8 x 39mL in a single row and a max RCF of 242,000 x g.
Our technicians inspect all rotors, including any buckets, gaskets and overspeed disks. Fixed angle rotors are closely inspected for body integrity; swinging bucket rotors supplied with buckets are checked for proper weight distribution. When possible we run each rotor in a compatible centrifuge to make sure the rotor spins properly.
