Development of the Prism™ started with feedback from our thousands of Life Science customers worldwide. We summarized this feedback and put our design and development teams to work to create an easy-to-use, high performance centrifuge in a modern and attractive form. Our new friction fit lid latching system combines reliability and safety with easy operation. The updated control panel with a single large control knob and easy to read Liquid Crystal Display provides an intuitive interface for operation. Speed (in RPM or G-Force) and run time can be quickly and accurately set and actual speed and time remaining are displayed during a run.
Our latest air-cooled microcentrifuge incorporates knowledge we have developed over 25 years in the centrifuge business. We know that combining high speed performance, quiet operation, and effective air cooling into one compact instrument is not a simple engineering task. But we have achieved this objective with our unique air-flow and motor drive technologies, and are proud to now offer our latest and greatest high speed microcentrifuge: the Labnet Prism™.
The Prism™ uniquely designed 24-place rotor allows easy access to the tops of sample tubes, allowing for faster work flow. The individual tube slots in the solid rotor support tubes along their length to eliminate tube deformation or cracking even at the highest speed settings. In the event of a tube failure, tube pieces and samples are contained within the sample well. The rotor is designed to hold all standard 1.5/2.0ml tubes (both conical bottom and skirted), and the snap on lid offers space for micro-filter filters that fit into the tops of the tubes. Adapters are available for processing smaller tubes, and our exclusive StripSpin™ Adapter fits onto the top of the rotor for centrifuging standard 8-tube PCR strips.
The Prism™ Microcentrifuge offers a maximum speed of 15,000 rpm / 21,200 x g for very efficient separation of nucleic acids and protein samples. Quick acceleration and deceleration reduce processing time, and our unique multi-flow air cooling system keeps the rotor and samples close to ambient temperature with minimal noise.
