John Morris Scientific – The Sigma 1-15 is a high-speed table-top microcentrifuge. It is suitable for a range of sedimentations and is available in refrigerated/non-refrigerated models.
It has a maximum speed of 14,000 rpm corresponding 21,918 × g. The refrigerated model has a temperature range between -10°C and +40°C. A number of different rotor sizes are available to suit diverse requirements.
The Sigma 1-16 has soft-start and soft-stop options. Soft-start enabled gentle acceleration and protects sensitive samples. Soft-stop significantly reduces remixing of sediments when stopping the centrifuge. The Sigma 1-15 microcentrifuge encompasses a brushless drive motor and metal housing for optimal safety and stability.
Applications for the Sigma 1-15 include microbiology research, biochemistry, molecular biology, DNA analysis and all sensitive sedimentations. Compared to other centrifuges within its class, the Sigma 1-15 enables higher capacity to be achieved and greater gravitational fields to be reached.
