Optima XE Ultracentrifuge

With all the features you expect, along with many advanced functions you won’t find anywhere else, the OptimaTM XE simplifies use while offering secure loading for efficient, worry-free separations. 

Designed as a total system, Optima instruments, rotors and labware are designed, manufactured and tested as an integrated system for optimal performance and safety. The Optima XE features:

  • Intelligent user interface
  • Multi-layered biosafety features
  • Efficient energy use 

Optima XE Features

Energy Efficient Technology 

  • Maintains runs during power fluctuations
  • Run Recovery feature allows to continue a run once the power is restored
  • Regenerative braking and low idle power equates to lower power consumption from the centrifuge

Easy to Use Interface 

  • 38.1cm (15”) LCD touchscreen display
  • Allows for large icons for easy selection
  • Status can be seen from across lab
  • Touchscreen works with many glove types
  • 9 different languages available for the intuitive interface (most in industry)

Enhanced Safety

  • Rotor overspeed disc
  • Dynamic Rotor Inertia Check (DRIC)
  • BioSafe optional dual PALL® Pharmaceutical-Grade Sterilizing Filters

Quiet Drive Technology

  • Designed for the lowest drive noise, which equates to less than 51 dBA during operation.
