The Beckman Optima TLX ultracentrifuge, is a tabletop model designed for a variety of high-speed applications. Along with operator safety, the Beckman ultracentrifuge system prioritizes maximum performance capabilities with a force of 657,000 x g and sample volumes ranging from 0.2 mL to 5.1 mL per tube.

The Beckman Optima TLX centrifuge offers enhanced operator convenience. Equipped with an easy-to-use control panel, this Beckman centrifuge also has a temperature control system, a self-purging vacuum system and a programmable memory that can store up to 10 different profiles and more.

The control panel of this Optima ultracentrifuge system is located on top of the machine for convenience and easy access and visibility. During a run, the actual condition is shown in the control panel including speed, temperature, and time. The thermoelectric temperature control system uses forced air and doesn’t require any coolant.

The Beckman Optima TLX centrifuge also comes with safety features. The centrifuge has imbalance-tolerant, direct vacuum-encased, air-cooled drives, as well as a steel chamber door which has an electromechanical door locking mechanism. The door automatically locks when manually closed.

All of our equipment is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.

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.
