Gain all the advantages of the ultimate thin-layer cell preparation system with the Thermo Scientific™ Cytospin™ 4 Cytocentrifuge. This reliable benchtop centrifuge provides economical thin-layer preparations from any liquid matrix, especially hypocellular fluids such as spinal fluid and urine.
-Processes 12 specimens at one time
-Accepts all protocols from Cytospin 1, 2 and 3
-Allows for one-handed opening and closing with a redesigned lid-release mechanism
-Enables viewing of the sealed head through the polycarbonate window during operation
-Protects mechanical and electronic components from damage due to accidental fluid spills
-Designed for easy disinfection
-Meets stringent IEC 61010 safety standards
Protects Users and Specimens:
-Allows loading of the sealed head inside a microbiological cabinet for ultimate safety.
-Features an auto-locking, plastic outer lid.
-Operates only when lid is locked and keeps lid locked during rotation.
-Sounds an audible alarm when the cytocentrifuge is out of balance, outside the speed tolerance or if the lid is not properly locked.
-Uses specimen safety alarms at one-minute intervals to remind users to remove specimens to prevent air drying and ensure consistent results.
Provides Excellent Presentation:
-The cytocentrifuge deposits cells onto a clearly defined area of a glass slide and allows for the absorption of the residual fluid into the sample chamber's filter card.
-Cytocentrifugation constructively flattens cells for excellent nuclear presentation.
-During operation, the instrument's spinning action tilts the Shandon™ Cytofunnels™ upright and centrifuges cells onto the deposition area of the slide, giving all cell types equal opportunity for presentation.
-In the Load or Stop position, the tilting feature reduces cell loss by preventing residual fluid from coming into contact with the prepared slide.
Offers Simple and Precise Controls:
-Pull-out program card logs up to nine programs for fast, convenient retrieval.
-Protected program memory stores up to 23 routines for instant recall and protects from power loss.
-Easy-touch program keypad allows for easier keystrokes and more intuitive programming.
-Speed window displays programmed spinning speeds from 200 to 2000rpm.
-Three acceleration-control buttons allow the operator the flexibility to protect fragile samples.
-Time window displays the programmed and remaining run time from 1 to 99.
-Control feature has a standby power-saving mode; displays are also turned on and off by the standby key.
