Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches New High-performance Batch Bioprocessing Centrifuge System
Thermo Scientific Sorvall RC BIOS Ensures Sample Safety and Integrity
MILFORD, Mass., (December 16, 2010) – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced the launch of the new Thermo Scientific Sorvall RC BIOS centrifuge system for high-speed, high-volume batch bioprocessing applications. The system integrates a six-liter Thermo Scientific Fiberlite carbon fiber rotor and true fit one-liter Thermo Scientific Nalgene bottles to achieve superior yields with faster processing time, making it ideal for bacterial and mammalian cell pelleting, large microbial cultures and harvesting cell and tissue cultures.
The Sorvall® RC BIOS centrifuge system can spin up to 15860 xg, significantly reducing cycle times. The smallest footprint available in its class and quiet performance make it ideal for convenient in-lab placement. The high-capacity centrifuge system has a power-saving design that reduces overall processing and development costs, and a robust refrigeration system ensure sample quality which, in turn, reduces lot-to-lot variability.
The Sorvall RC BIOS centrifuge features a robust, automated lid lock control that protects both users and samples while making opening and closing the system effortless. In addition, the new optional Thermo Scientific Centri-Log data collection software increases quality control, process traceability and component tracking for continued Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) compliance.
The Sorvall RC BIOS joins the complete range of Sorvall large-capacity centrifuges, including the recently released low-speed Thermo Scientific Sorvall RC 12BP Plus centrifuge for blood banking and additional bioprocessing applications. With a maximum capacity of 12 liters, the Sorvall RC 12BP Plus centrifuge can process up to 12 blood bag systems (up to 500 mL) or six 2000 mL Thermo Scientific Nalgene bio-bottles.
