As the latest member of the Allegra suite of benchtop centrifuges, the Allegra X-5 air-cooled benchtop centrifuge from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences is designed specifically for clinical sample preparation. Bundled packages, which include swinging bucket rotors and common adapters, are offered for a range of clinical sample prep applications. Throughput and productivity are enhanced through integration with the Beckman Coulter Automate 2500 family of sample processing systems. Furthermore, Beckman Coulter UniCel DxC and UniCel DxI sample racks can be spun directly in the centrifuge, eliminating transfer steps. A small footprint allows the unit to fit comfortably on the benchtop, while still providing capacity for up to 140 blood collection tubes. Maximum speed of 4700 rpm and centrifugal force of up to 4470 x g shortens run times.
