Learn About the Primo
The compact high-performance Heraeus Primo centrifuge offers the functionality of three centrifuges. The ideal centrifuge for small medical laboratories, biochemistry and molecular biological research, and routine analysis in industrial laboratories, the Primo is a microliter, high speed and general purpose centrifuge all at the same time.
Fixed angle, swinging bucket and microliter rotors for all common tubes from 0.2 to 100 mL are available for applications using microliter, DIN, blood sample and Falcon type conical tubes.
The automatic rotor recognition system identifies the rotor being used and allocates individual parameters to improve lab effeciency.
Rapid acceleration and braking times minimize waiting and ensure rapid sample processing.
Low noise levels during operation provide a more comfortable working environment.
The Heraeus Primo series is equipped with electronic imbalance recognition.
Not only does it react if the centrifuge is loaded incorrectly, but it also registers imbalances during a run caused, for example, by tube breakage.
Centrifugation is interrupted and the user can remove the rotor and, if necessary, decontaminate it.
The Thermo Scientific EASYcontrol II user panel clearly displays all parameters.
Self explanatory symbols, which are internationally recognized, and the clear arrangement of function keys help you avoid incorrect operation.
The time and speed parameters are set with the easy-to-clean touch panel.
Two acceleration and nine braking curves are available for sensitive samples.
Quality Construction and Protection
The Primo centrifuge is composed of galvanized steel chassis with armored chamber and a plastic outer casing
Lid lock and interlock offer unrivaled centrifugal protection for ease-of-mind during runs
Typical Applications for the Primo
Sedimentation of cells (algae, yeast, bacteria, etc.)
Sedimentation of cell organelles and cell fragments
Sample preparation for HPLC, (capillary) electrophoresis, etc.
Separation of DNA and protein precipitates
Blood and urine analysis
Centrifugation of standard test series in microliter tubes
Highconic Fixed Angle Rotor
Includes 6 Adapters for 50 mL Conical Tubes
This rotor includes an aerosol tight lid and is ready to spin 50 mL conical tubes. It has adapters for high speed tubes from 1.5 to 50 mL and 15 or 50 mL Conical Falcon tubes, and flat angle ensures that sample material does not run out and the pellet forms at the bottom of the tube.
4 x 100 mL Swinging Bucket Rotor
This rotor accepts adapters for all types of tubes from 1.5 to 100 mL, and an aerosol tight cap is available.
Fixed Angle Drum Rotor
This rotor is suitable for high capacities of microlitre tubes with reduced braking and acceleration times and racks for every volume.
Microliter Fixed Angle Rotor
This rotor is designed for high performace at top speed, is infinitely autoclavable, and includes an aerosol-tight seal. Adapters available for 0.25 to 0.6 mL microtubes and 0.2 mL PCR tubes.
