The Beckman Optima™ TLX ultracentrifuge, is a tabletop model designed for a variety of high-speed applications. Along with operator safety, the Beckman ultracentrifuge system prioritizes maximum performance capabilities with a force of 657,000 x g and sample volumes ranging from 0.2 mL to 5.1 mL per tube.
The Beckman Optima™ TLX centrifuge offers enhanced operator convenience. Equipped with an easy to use control panel, this Beckman centrifuge also has a temperature control system, a self-purging vacuum system and a programmable memory that can store up to 10 different profiles and more.
The control panel of this Optima™ ultracentrifuge system is located on top of the machine for convenience and easy access and visibility. During a run, the actual condition is shown in the control panel including speed, temperature, and time. The thermoelectric temperature control system uses forced air and doesn’t require any coolant.
The Beckman Optima™ TLX centrifuge also comes with safety features. The centrifuge has imbalance-tolerant, direct vacuum-encased, air-cooled drives, as well as a steel chamber door which has an electromechanical door locking mechanism. The door automatically locks when manually closed.
