The Beckman GS-6 Centrifuge is a highly recommended, versatile and high-performance instrument used for general purpose separations as well as for separations of a large variety of plasma and cell culture. These centrifuges are available in three different variants of refrigerated tabletop, ambient tabletop and refrigerated knee-well models.
All the Beckman centrifuge models have an ergonomic design with optimized space utility. They are compact in design, easy-to-use and access and deliver excellent performance.
The Beckman GS-6 Series Centrifuge Models can be used with a variety of adapter and rotor combinations which can be used to handle almost any kind of applications. The rotor options include a high capacity GH-3.8 swinging bucket rotor or two fixed-angle rotors. These rotors can be used with different variety of adapters in order to spin bottles and tubes of variable sizes.
The GS-6 Centrifuges can deliver quick process results with sample capacity of as much as three litres. Additionally, the centrifuges offer a soft start feature that offer optimised acceleration while taking enough care of protecting delicate gradients. The instrument also comes with a two-stage dynamic disk brake that controls rapid and smooth deceleration.
The Beckman GS-6 Centrifuges are being used for a wide array of industrial applications Like:
Isolation of viruses
Isolation of cells
Useful in routine laboratory processes like sample extractions, sample preparations, pelleting, sample concentrations, sample purifications, receptor binding, phase separations, and column configurations.
Useful in preparations of sub-cellular organelles like crude microsomes, mitochondria and granules.
Rapid sedimentation of cell debris, protein precipitates and large particles.
