The Thermo Sorvall LYNX 6000 features exceptional performance and cutting-edge technologies such as auto-ID instant rotor identification that automatically loads and displays rotor parameters on the touchscreen interface, push-button auto-lock rotor exchange, and energy-efficiency use options and a Smart Vacuum feature for reduced energy consumption. The LYNX 6000 is compatible with a total of 19 rotors that can spin tubes in a variety of sizes, from microtubes to 1L bottles to microplates. The fixed angle rotors for the LYNX 6000 are lightweight Fiberlite carbon fiber rotors with corrosion- and fatigue-resistance secures the rotor's structural integrity.

The Centri-Touch touchscreen interface has a bright, highly visible and durable display that simplifies set up and allows for program storage of up to 120 user inputted programs with alpha-numeric naming as well as 9 acceleration and 10 deceleration profiles. The drive system features a high torque brushless motor for years of virtually maintenance free use and quiet operation at less than 59dBA.

This Lynx 6000 comes with the Fiberlite F9-6-1000 LEX fixed angle rotor, which is designed for bioprocessing (up to 6L per run) and offering the flexibility of adapters for labware from 1.5 to 500mL (purchased directly from Thermo Scientific.

Thermo Scientific Fiberlite rotors maximize centrifuge performance with versatility, speed and a robust, corrosion-free design. Large metal centrifuge rotors often present a unique lifting hazard in the laboratory due to their weight and awkward shape. Lightweight Fiberlite rotors—up to 60% less weight than metallic rotors —facilitate a safer work environment and minimize risk of damage to centrifugation equipment as a result of these ergonomic improvements. Additionally, these lightweight properties result in faster acceleration/deceleration rates for shorter run times.

Traditionally, the primary cause of rotor failure is from damage to metal surfaces due to moisture, chemicals or alkaline solutions that weaken the metal rotor’s structural integrity. Carbon fiber composite rotors are corrosion-resistant, eliminating this ever-present hazard, and are safe to use with most mild laboratory detergents and solutions, providing easy rotor care and maintenance.

Substantial load or stress, as a result of high rotational speeds and repeat cycles, can also threaten metal rotor structure by causing it to stretch and change in size, limiting rotor life or leading to failure. Thermo Scientific Fiberlite rotors are fatigue-resistant, mitigating this threat.

The next generation of high capacity Fiberlite rotors, the Fiberlite LEX rotor series, further advances the current carbon fiber design, combining even lower mass with low kinetic energy to deliver superior ergonomics with outstanding performance and safety.

Fiberlite LEX rotors take the lightweight design of carbon fiber to a whole new level; these rotors are the lightest of their kind, further improving ergonomics and ease of handling.

Auto-Lock rotor exchange - Secure, push-button rotor exchange in as little as 3 seconds and allows for:  Improved safety and confidence that the rotor is automatically and securely locked and will not loosen during a run; flexibility to quickly change rotors and applications, matching the needs of your laboratory—today and in the future; and trouble-free rotor installation and removal that requires no tools change rotors; and the rotor locks itself to the centrifuge, eliminating the need for hand-tightening.

Auto-ID instant rotor identification - Immediate identification of a rotor when secured in the centrifuge chamber, with rotor specifications automatically loaded into the centrifuge parameters. Shortens run set-up time by eliminating the need to find and set rotor codes. Eliminates over-speed risk, reduces error messages, and improves centrifuge, sample and operator safety.

Speed handle on rotor lids - Accelerates and simplifies rotor lid tightening, ensuring lid is properly attached and is easier and safer for lifting and carrying  rotors, further enhanced with the lightweight design.

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.

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.
