We’ve got the how-to articles that will make you the expert on choosing autoclaves and centrifuges for a new lab. Learn about various features and what to watch out for during your purchase!
Some centrifuge rotors are compatible with previous centrifuge models! It really depends on the rotors and which previous model centrifuge you have in your lab. We encourage you to reach out to our team to learn more. Contact us
Yes, the CA-300 rotor rack is essential for proper usage of the TOMY MDX-310 Centrifuge. It is what lets you stack up to 3 rotors in the centrifuge (depending on the specific rotor).
The TOMY MDX-310 Centrifuge is equipped with a Rotor Identification System. The system recognizes the installed rotor to operate within the optimal settings. The Rotor Identification System is an important safety feature that helps stop the unit from exceeding the maximum allowable speed for the specific rotor.
Like most centrifuges, the MDX-310 requires centrifugation tubes to be loaded symmetrically around the motor shaft. Opposing adapters, tubes, and samples should be of the same type and tubes should be filled equally to provide necessary counterbalance.
Absolutely! There is a FLASH function/mode and can even be set to Automatic Flash Mode. Details for short spins can be found in the MDX-310 Operator's Manual.
Yes, adjusting the display to show RCF is simple settings change.
The MDX is equipped with a memory function that can save up to 6 sets of operating parameters including temperature, speed/RCF, run time and soft brake mode.
Remove the rotors, buckets, and racks from the unit and wash thoroughly with lukewarm (50°C) water, rinse and wipe dry. To sterilize use ethanol and avoid sterilizing in an autoclave or using dry heat.
Yes, that is one of the key features of TOMY Multi Spin Centrifuge. The unit is fully operational on just 4 'AA' batteries. It can also run on AC power, and will give AC power priority if it is plugged in, so it won't drain the batteries. The battery and AC power variability makes the Multi Spin a great solution for "field" use.
Yes, a balance loading pattern is required for proper operation of the unit.
The MA-1 rotor can utilize 2.0mL and 1.5mL tubes, while the PCR adapter (PA-1) holds 0.2mL tubes. Please refer to the specifications sheet for more detail.
The unit comes with the centrifuge, AC Adapter Set (5 types of plugs), the MA-1 Microtube rotor, the PA-1 tube stip rotor, and an Operator's Manual.
Yes, this is the stand out feature for this particular centrifuge and is a great option for flashing a single microtube.
The centrifuge spins when the lid is closed. Load the tubes, close the lid and hold it down with your hand, release your hand to stop operation. It's that simple!
