Thermo Scientific Fixed-Angle centrifuge rotor. All things being equal, the fact that swinging-bucket rotors offer a superior sedimentation location makes them the obvious choice for centrifuging samples; however, fixed-angle rotors offer valuable features that often make them a more desirable choice.
Enhanced capacity of 16 x 500mL blood bags or 8 x 2000mL bottles (16L) and the user-friendly design of our Thermo Scientific large capacity centrifuges make working with large volumes easier and more convenient using the protocols you've already validated.
The ultracentrifuge is a centrifuge optimized for spinning a rotor at very high speeds, capable of generating acceleration as high as 1 000 000 g (approx. 9 800 km/s²). There are two kinds of ultracentrifuges, the preparative and the analytical ultracentrifuge.
Dynamically Unloaded Zonal Rotors: Operation of a dynamically unloaded zonal rotor is depicted schematically in Figure 12-13. Two fluid lines connect the center and edge of the rotor chamber with a rotating-seal assembly that permits loading the density gradient (and sample) into the rotor while the rotor is spinning.
