Sorvall MTX 150 Micro-Ultracentrifuge


Centrifugation involves the use of centrifugal force, so as to increase the effective gravitational force on the components of a mixture, in order to separate them. The rate of centrifugation of a particle in a mixture is specified by the acceleration applied to the sample measured in revolutions per minute(rpm). The settling velocity of the particle is a function of its size and shape, viscosity of the medium, besides other factors. The ultracentrifuge is optimized for spinning a rotor at very high speeds, capable of generating acceleration as high as 1,000,000 g (9,800 km/s²).These high centrifugal forces are used to isolate very small particles, including ribosomes, proteins, viruses and to study membrane fractionation.

  • Regulatory standards: cCSAus, CE, IEC61010-2-020, EN61326-1 2006

  • Simple operation

  • The Sorvall MTX 150 microultracentrifuge provides user-friendly, reliable ¬†operation to simplify rotor loading, instrument setup, and instrument operation. The Sorvall MTX 150 also offers visual tube balancing for enhanced ease of use.

  • Self locking rotor system automatically secures the rotor to the drive shaft. This innovation eliminates the need to manually secure the rotor, facilitation rotor
    installation and enhancing safety.

  • GMP/GLP Data compliance and Management

  • The Sorvall MTX 150 offers traceability and quality control for biopharmaceutical processing needs. A USB port allows connectivity to a memory stick, facilitating output of operating data in CSV format.
