Sigma 1-7 – Non-Refrigerated Compact Benchtop Centrifuge

Maximum Capacity 6x15mL, Maximum Speed 8,000RPM

The Sigma 1-7 has an all-purpose fixed-angle rotor that can hold many different types of conventional blood tubes for in vitro diagnostics (IVD) as well as round-bottom tubes up to 15 ml. With a maximum RCF of 6,153 x g, separation times can be reduced dramatically – a crucial factor for time-critical applications such as emergency laboratories where fast diagnosis is vitally important for patients. The short acceleration and braking times of 13 and 11 seconds, respectively, make results available in next to no time.

  • Simple and convenient SpinControl Basic controller
  • Low temperature rise in continuous operation
  • Motorised lid lock and automatic lid unlocking
