New Optima™ MAX-XP Benchtop Ultracentrifuge Designed for Use in Biosafety Hood

The Optima™ MAX-XP benchtop ultracentrifuge from Beckman Coulter, Inc. is the next generation in the company's successful Optima line, the new instrument delivers fast run times of up to 150,000 RPM (2,500 revolutions per second) and is exceptionally quiet – producing only half the sound power of other benchtop models. A new MLA-150 fixed-angle rotor for the Optima MAX-XP has a low k-factor for rapid separation of small volume samples such as subcellular particles, viruses and proteins.

The Optima MAX-XP features redesigned software with significant ease-of-use enhancements. The user interface is intuitive and customizable with control via a full-color touch screen. Optional remote monitoring and control of the system is also available. Users can easily switch between RPM and RCF modes. Important data, including detailed run histories, can be easily exported through a USB port. The software supports 21 CFR Part 11, GLP and GMP compliance and new user ID and login features provide important lab management tools.

As with many Beckman Coulter centrifuges, the Optima MAX-XP is offered with multiple levels of biocontainment and is designed to fit in a standard biosafety hood. For added protection, this new ultracentrifuge is also offered in a biosafe version featuring HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Arresting) filtration. A selection of labware and rotors for biosafety requirements is available and all existing Optima MAX and Optima TLX rotors are compatible with the new ultracentrifuge.
