Beckman Coulter Life Sciences has expanded its range of Avanti high-performance centrifuges with the launch of the Avanti JXN-30. This capitalises on the company’s expertise in ultracentrifugation by incorporating features from its Optima X series into the high-performance Avanti JXN-30.
The new centrifuge improves workflow by delivering high-throughput performance and an expanding and increasingly varied separations capability. This ranges from high-efficiency, high-volume separations using fixed angle rotors to high-force zonal separations with swinging bucket rotors.
In addition, the MobileFuge remote application for Avanti JXN and Optima X series centrifuges enables access to all types of data, carrying out remote monitoring, control and error handling via networks and mobile devices. This application, available for both Apple iOS and Android devices, has already attracted more than 700 downloads. Its data management capability combines with the network and MobileFuge applications to make the Avanti JXN series especially suitable for shared laboratory environments.
Beckman Coulter centrifuges offer customers energy savings and environmental advantages. A friction reduction system (FRS) enables the Avanti JXN-30 to run more quietly, increasing energy efficiency by reducing the air in the chamber. This reduces rotor friction, minimising the effort required to accelerate and to maintain speed. The FRS also lowers the amount of heat present in the chamber, reducing refrigeration system usage.
