Ultra Harmonic Technology (UHT)
Traditional tabletop centrifugation primarily considers time, temperature and speed as pillars of centrifuge design. Ultra-Harmonic Technology (UHT) goes a step further by adjusting the way acceleration and decelerations are controlled.
Ultra-Harmonic Technology is ideal for samples that require special deceleration profiles during pelleting or separation (e.g., soft pellets, samples that are less adherent and less compact). The overall forces applied to the sample during these critical phases are balanced to limit the disturbance of the sample and preserve the separation that has already been optimized during the run.
Benefits of Ultra-Harmonic Technology include:
- Lowers sample loss and reduces the need to repeat experiments.
- Improves the quality of sample separation through refined acceleration and deceleration.
- Maximizes the efficiency and yield of sample separation and pelleting.
- Reduces the presence of contaminants or unpelleted materials in the supernatant by preventing pelleted materials from going back into the solution.
