The Beckman Coulter Optima TLX ultracentrifuge can be used in a variety of high-speed centrifugal applications. This machine has a variable-frequency induction drive, thermoelectric identification system, self-purging vacuum system, rotor overspeed ID system, a memory that can save up to ten five-step programs, and a choice of acceleration and deceleration rates. The induction motor of the Optima MAX is air cooled and has no gears or brushes, and the drive does not require and oil vacuum seal. This centrifuge is microprocessor controlled and operates by a touch-key control pad. Compatible rotors can accommodate sample volumes from 0.2ml to 5.1ml per tube. The Beckman Coulter Optima MAX also features a rotor imbalance detection system.

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.
