This Nuve NF048 Microlitre & Haematocrit Bench Top Centrifuge is especially designed for the separation of blood samples, urine particles sedimentation and for carrying out the other routine applications in microbiology laboratories.
The body, lid and chamber are steel with epoxy-polyester paint. This means that the centrifuge is resistant to external and internal effects.
By means of the microprocessor control system, you can program both speed and time. The ‘pulse’ function provides the operator to run the programs of short duration.
It ensures safe processes by means of the locking system. This does not allow the centrifuge to operate or the rotor to spin if the lid is open.
The lid opens by pushing only one key when the program ends, providing safe and easy working conditions. There are audible and visible alarms to inform the operator when the lid is open, when the program ends and when any error conditions occur. In case of a power failure, you can open the lid manually by using a manual lid opening tool. There is also an observation hole at the top of the instrument to check the speed of the centrifuge by a tachometer.
Nuve NF048 Microlitre and Haematocrit Rotors
You can use the Nuve NF048 as a compact centrifuge both as a microlitre and haematocrit centrifuge, simply by swapping the rotors provided.
The microlitre rotor accepts up to 24 small capacity tubes up to 2 ml. With it the NF 048 is ideal for hospital and research laboratories and for applications such as pelleting of DNA and protein, DNA amplification, enzyme tests, centrifugation of cells, yeast and microorganisms at high speed. A clear cover over the rotor protects the centrifuge if something goes wrong. With this rotor attached the maximum speed is 12000rpm.
When the NF 048 is operated with the haematocrit rotor, it can be used for determining the haematocrit volume by means of the centrifugation of up to 24 blood samples in capillary tubes. With this rotor attached the maximum speed is 14000rpm.
