CS150NX Ultracentrifuge

Micro Ultracentrifuge

The world's fastest speed:150,000rpm/The world's greatest RCF:1,050,000xg

himac centrifuge technologies have realized the above greatest performance and the guietest operating sound "45dBA 2 in its the most compact body *.
CS150NX takes only 90 seconds to reach the world' s fastest speed 150,000rpm by himac original vacuumed drive unit. Now you can separate and purify protein, lipoprotein, cell organelle, DND and RNA, also carbon nano tubes, more efficiently than ever.

The Most Compact Body

  • The most compact body * (590(W) x 582(D) x 408(H) mm) does not occupy laboratory table. CS150NX carries the world greatest performance and many attractive and useful functions in its the most compact body *. Rotor chamber is allocated in a front part of the body with smooth sliding door, so that it is easy for operators to place a rotor. Touch-sensitive LCD panel with wide view angle is placed at a position and an angle for easy operation.PWM (pulse width modulation) motor control has realized substantial reduction in acceleration and deceleration time.

    The Most Compact Body

Powerful Imbalance Protection

  • Samples need to be balanced within 5mm by visual check only.* Non-contact imbalance sensor always monitors vibration of the rotor and drive shaft. In case of abnormal vibration, the sensor activates and stops operation immediately.

    • Except for S140AT, S50A, S110AT and S80AT3
    Powerful Imbalance Protection

Easy Operation with Touch-Sensitive LCD

  • Samples need to be balanced within 5mm by visual check only. Non-contact imbalance sensor always monitors vibration of the rotor and drive shaft. In case of abnormal vibration, the sensor activates and stops operation immediately.

    Easy Operation with Touch-Sensitive LCD

Quiet Operating Sound "45dBA"

This unusually quiet operating sound was realized by newly develope rigid-cotrol drive system and sound absorbing structure design. It does not disturb your researching works in the laboratory.

Quick Start-Up

  • It takes just 8 seconds(minimum) to be ready for operation since power switch is turn on. Initial screen is displayed on the LCD panel during booting up the system.

    Quick Start-Up

Powerful Vacuum Pump

Reaching time to high-vacuum status is reduced to half by optimized control of the oil diffusion pump. (comparing with our previous model.)

Easy Timer Setting

himac original RTC (real-time control) function makes timer setting easy. What you need to do is simply set start time or finish time with running time. It is easier than conventional delay time setting timer.

Accurate Control of Net Run-Time

The timer starts when the set speed is atteined by himac original actual run timer function. It helps to precisely control of the net run-time and obtain high-reproducibility separation. Of course, conventional run timer is selelctable.

RCF Calculation and Display

CS150NX eliminates many troublesome and time-consuming manual calculation. Also, you can start operation by entering g value, instead of running speed.

USB Interface (compatible to GLP/GMP)

USB port is equipped as standard specificiation. Operating data can be output in CSV format. LAN port is also selectable. (option)

Data Communication

USB port is equipped as standard specification. (CS150FNX and CS150NX only) The system records up to 100 operating histories in its memory. So operating data can be output in CSV format through the USB port. Optional LAN board is also available. (CS150FNX and CS150NX only) You can link CS150FNX and/or CS150NX to your PC through Ethernet or internet. Optional software ‘‘himac LogManager Ver. 5.0 (network edition)’’ can be installed in your PC and operating history and data of CS150FNX and/or CS150NX can be easily managed by your PC.

Tube Sealer model STF3

  • The STF3 is heat-welding tube sealer to use the seal tubes with fixed angle rotors, vertical rotors and neo angle rotors.

    Tube Sealer model STF3

New Line-up Seal Tubes with " xg Boost System "

In addition to the current himac ultracentrifuge seal tubes, new seal tubes were line-up. This time they can use at the rotor’s maximum RCF because the tube position locates at the maximum radius of the rotor cavities. Expanding the range of seal tubes widens the rotor’s availability, too.

  • Small volume tubes can use at the rotor’s maximum RCF
  • Compared with the same volume tubes, new seal tubes K factors are smaller and take less centrifugation time
  • Sealing performance prevents from sample leakage
  • To use these new lineup seal tubes, float spacer, space cap, tube rack and STF3 tube sealer are required.
