The writing on one rotor of the Centrifuge 5804/5804 R or 5810/5810 R says, for example, "6x125g". Does this mean that the centrifuge only enables an RCF of 125 or that it can only be loaded with a maximum of 6 times 125 gram?
'No, the Centrifuges 5804/5804 R and 5810/5810 R do not come with a transport protection device. They are packaged in polystyrene for protection. Because the rotor is not in the centrifuge during transport, there are no movable parts to make a transport protection device necessary.
Yes, it is possible, provided that the rotor is loaded symmetrically. This means that the 50 ml tubes and the 15 ml tubes are positioned opposite one another and are positioned symmetrically. Please use the appropriate adapters for the tubes.
Yes, the speed, the time and the temperature can be changed even when the centrifuge is running. To do this, please press the SPEED, TIME or TEMP key and change the values by pressing the arrow keys.
Yes, these adapters can also be used in the rotor F-34-6-38 with the adapter 5804 770.005.
The PCR strip rotor F-45-48-PCR is available under the order number 5804 735.005. It can centrifuge up to 6 x 8-well strips at 12,000 rpm / 15,350 x g.
50 ml DIN glass tubes (diameter 34 mm, length 100 mm) can be centrifuged in the adapter for 50 - 75 ml tubes (order number 5804 760.000) of the swing-bucket rotor A-4-44. Depending on the length of the tube, the uppermost module of the adapter can be removed for centrifugation of 50 ml DIN glass tubes.
Yes. Free deceleration of your centrifuge can be achieved by setting the braking level to 0.
All data is saved that can also be entered manually, such as rotational speed or RCF, maximum radius, run time, acceleration and braking ramps, "at set rpm", temperature.
This display appears every 200 centrifugation runs. For cleaning the rotor and the rotor chamber, the rotor must first be removed from the centrifuge. To do this, loosen the rotor nut by turning it counter-clockwise with the supplied rotor key. Please clean the rotor and rotor chamber only with mild cleaning agents (e.g. 70% alcohol solutions or commercially available alcoholic disinfectants).
For rcf, a "*" is displayed in front of the value. rpm is not indicated by a symbol.
Yes, for 50 ml Centripreps we offer the adapter 5810 739.004 for the rotor A-4-81.
The minimum rotational speed is 200 rpm, irrespective of the inserted rotor. The minimum rotational speed can be increased in increments of 10 rpm up to 5,000 rpm and then in increments of 100 rpm.
With a rubber adapter (outer diameter 18 mm) available from the tube manufacturer, the 15 ml Corex tubes fit into the adapter 5804 772.008 of the rotor F-34-6-38. With a rubber adapter (outer diameter 29 mm) available from the tube manufacturer, the 30 ml Corex tubes fit into the adapter 5804 774.000 of the rotor F-34-6-38. This rotor can be inserted into the Centrifuge 5804/5804 R or 5810/5810 R.
The following g-forces are reached with the rotor A-2-DWP: Lowest plate: 2,250 x g Highest plate: 1,825 x g
Up to 12 slides can be inserted into the CombiSlide adapter and then centrifuged in the swing-bucket rotors of Centrifuge 5804/5804 R or 5810/5810 R.
Yes. It is the same rotor cross. Please note that mixed loading of the rotor with rectangular buckets and MTP buckets is not permitted.
Yes, this so-called mixed loading is possible. Please ensure that the same type of buckets are always used in opposing positions.
No, unfortunately this is not possible. In order to be able to reach the high rotational speeds, the adapters must be form-locking.
Yes, the adapters can be inserted into the rotor for centrifugation of 0.5 ml tubes.
This label states that the rotor can be loaded with a maximum of 6 x 125 gram. "g" is the official abbreviation for "gram". Where "g" is used as an abbreviation of "g-force", the number and "x g" are used. Example: 10,800 x g.
