Item 1265ZZ CENTRI - Beckman Ultra Airfuge
Beckman Airfuge air-driven Ultracentrifuge
We know what you’re thinking – 110,000rpm with a small tabletop centrifuge, that must be a typo, right? Wrong. It’s no typo. This little machine can reach speeds normally associated with floor model ultracentrifuges and can accelerate from a still position to 100k rpms in as little as 30 seconds. The Beckman Airfuge doesn’t use vacuum or high-speed bearings; instead, the rotor is supported and spun by streams of air. This handy little machine is designed to provide a rapid method for removing chylomicrons (i.e., fat particles in lipemic samples) and can be used in a lot of other applications: pelleting particles from a large sample, sedimenting particulates from very small volumes on to supports for insertion into an electron microscope, and many more. If you’re looking for a cost- effective solution to your small-scale ultracentrifugation needs, the Beckman Airfuge definitely deserves your consideration.

All of our equipment is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test the performance of all centrifuges and make sure the rotating assembly is properly balanced; the bearings, seals and gaskets on the spindle assembly are in good shape; and the controls work properly. If the centrifuge is refrigerated we also test to make sure that the machine reaches and hold temperature properly. All tolerances are measured and the exterior and interior of all units are fully cleaned. If the unit is being purchased with a rotor we test the rotor/centrifuge combination together.
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.
The photos above are representative. Please bear in mind that the equipment shown is currently in storage in our warehouse and that in addition to testing each machine we will clean all the equipment thoroughly prior to shipment. We often have multiple units of each model in stock and sometimes we're unable to feature photos of every single unit. At your request, we can provide photos of the equipment in your order after it has been tested and cleaned.
