SIGMA 6-16S benchtop centrifuge for routine and research applications
The SIGMA 6-16S is a universal benchtop centrifuge with cycle counting for each rotor and a flat and round bottom. With a shipping weight of 153.00 kg and an item weight of 116.00 kg, it is a robust and reliable instrument that will serve you faithfully in your laboratory work - a maintenance-free induction drive also contributes to this. The SIGMA 6-16S is a powerful laboratory centrifuge system with dimensions of 483 x 581 x 711 mm. It features an acoustic signal that can be switched off if required. The centrifuge covers password protected access control. The clearly organised display of the speed and gravity field is possible, as well as the display of the dimensions.
The maximum acceleration of the laboratory table centrifuge is between 29 and 144 seconds, depending on the rotor, and the control accuracy is 1 min 1. 10 linear and 10 quadratic acceleration curves can be set. The braking curve and free run-out can be selected in combination, and 10 linear and 10 quadratic braking curves can also be set. The maximum braking time is between 34 and 149 seconds, depending on the rotor. This way you have the perfect conditions für precise separation results. You also have the possibility to adapt microtiter plates, hemolyse tubes, petroleum flasks, culture tubes or glass tubes to the plate holder while working with the centrifuge. A one knob controller ensures an easy handling and user specific settings.
High speeds and diverse vessel volumes
The SIGMA 6-16S features continuous running and emergency lid lock release while running, which can be switched off if required. Automatic lid opening can also be switched off. The large program status display with an advanced user interface is a modern TFT display showing all relevant information. This is an extremely practical feature. The model has a high speed range and the integrated microcontroller controls speed: the max. capacity for speed is 13500 rpm and the minimum speed is 100 rpm. The speed increments are adjustable in steps of 10 and 1. The SIGMA 6-16S is adjustable for liquids with a liquid density above 1.2 g/cm3. 10 freely definable acceleration curves and braking curves are possible. Free run-out is also available and a free program name can be assigned.
The SIGMA 6-16S operates at a frequency of 50/60 Hz, making it suitable for international use. With its powerful and formal tonality and use of Sie-Form, the model is ideal for use in laboratories and scientific facilities. With its impressive kinetic energy of 106950 Nm and a capacity of up to 4 x 800 ml , it is the perfect choice for researchers and laboratories requiring maximum power and capacity. The SIGMA 6-16S centrifuge is a true masterpiece of engineering. With a vessel volume of 0.2 ml (for example, for a microvial) up to 800 ml and a weight of 116 kg, it is capable of handling even the most demanding experiments. The noise level at maximum speed is 73 dB (A) and even more quite at low speeds and the height with open lid is 990 mm.
Rotor detection and individual programs for flexible work
The universal table top centrifuge has 60 pre-programmed programs and a microprocessor control system that allows precise control of speed, gravity field and radius. The optical standstill heating indicator and the permanent target and actual display provide additional safety and control during operation. The SIGMA 6-16S centrifuge is equipped different adapters and with an MTP rotor, fixed angle rotors and six swing-out rotors, has rotor detection, and offers 10 gravity field steps at 1 x g. All of the rotors have a long rotor life time. The short run and run monitoring ensure smooth and safe handling.
With its 4-digit free numerical code as a key and start refusal if the actual temperature deviation is too large, it offers you maximum safety when carrying out your experiments. The tolerance is adjustable and the instrument warns you at the end of the rotor's life to ensure safe working. The signal length is adjustable and the control can be locked to prevent accidental changing of settings. Temperature steps are adjustable in 1°C temperature increments and the unit can be switched between °C and °F. The time setting range is from10 seconds to 99 hours and 59 minutes, with time increments of 60 and 1 second. Time counting starts from the target speed reached.
