Description

  • Processes 12 specimens at one time
  • Accepts all protocols from Cytospin 1, 2 and 3
  • Allows for one-handed opening and closing with a redesigned lid-release mechanism
  • Enables viewing of the sealed head through the polycarbonate window during operation
  • Protects mechanical and electronic components from damage due to accidental fluid spills
  • Designed for easy disinfection
  • Meets stringent IEC 61010 safety standards

Protects Users and Specimens
  • Allows loading of the sealed head inside a microbiological cabinet for ultimate safety
  • Features an auto-locking, plastic outer lid
  • Operates only when lid is locked and keeps lid locked during rotation
  • Includes disposable sample chambers with caps and a wipe-clean control panel
  • Sounds an audible alarm when the cytocentrifuge is out of balance, outside the speed tolerance or if the lid is not properly locked
  • Uses specimen safety alarms at one-minute intervals to remind users to remove specimens to prevent air drying and ensure consistent results

Provides Excellent Presentation
  • The cytocentrifuge deposits cells onto a clearly defined area of a glass slide and allows for the absorption of the residual fluid into the sample chamber's filter card
  • Cytocentrifugation constructively flattens cells for excellent nuclear presentation
  • During operation, the instrument's spinning action tilts the Shandon™ Cytofunnels™ upright and centrifuges cells onto the deposition area of the slide, giving all cell types equal opportunity for presentation
  • In the Load or Stop position, the tilting feature reduces cell loss by preventing residual fluid from coming into contact with the prepared slide

Offers Simple and Precise Controls
  • Pull-out program card logs up to nine programs for fast, convenient retrieval
  • Protected program memory stores up to 23 routines for instant recall and protects from power loss
  • Easy-touch program keypad allows for easier keystrokes and more intuitive programming
  • Speed window displays programmed spinning speeds from 200 to 2000rpm
  • Three acceleration-control buttons allow the operator the flexibility to protect fragile samples
  • Time window displays the programmed and remaining run time from 1 to 99
  • Control feature has a standby power-saving mode; displays are also turned on and off by the standby key
