The StatSpin Cytofuge 2 enables consistent, high-quality slide prep. With easy-to-use controls and snap-seal filter concentrators for simplified operation, samples are prepared quickly, quietly, and conveniently on the bench or in a safety cabinet. The system handles samples from routine body fluid preps to research methods involving application of multiple cell concentrations or controls on the same slide. A broad range of selectable speed and run times enables precise replication of most procedures developed on other cytocentrifuge equipment.
- Compact, quiet, safe
- Simple, standardized operating procedure
- Snap-seal filter concentrators
- 1-year warranty
This low-cost personal cytocentrifuge reliably produces consistent results, which makes it easy to scan monolayer cell presentations of excellent morphologic detail. Its small footprint allows it to fit in small area or safety hood. The covered rotor and chamber gaskets reduce exposure to biohazards. There is optimal operator control over acceleration and braking. The covered interlock system prevents operation when the cover is open. Its patented rotor design eliminates trunnion carriers or bulky clamps. The speed and cycle time controls accommodate a range of applications with repeatable accuracy.
StatSpin Cytofuge 2 is ideal for a complete range of body fluids:
- Pleural Fluids
- Fine Needle
- Sputum Aspirates
- Bronchial Washings
- Synovial Fluids
- Peritoneal Fluids
- Pericardial Fluids
- Cerebrospinal Fluids
Disposable Filter Concentrators
You save time and improve your results by eliminating the need to clean and sterilize reusable sample chambers. The device includes a uniquely hinged backing plate and an integral filter card, which effectively absorbs fluid at a controlled rate during the spin cycle. Cells are gently concentrated in a monolayer onto a 7 mm diameter area on the slide with minimal cell loss to the filter.
Reusable and Disposable Cell Concentrators
Available in 1 and 3-well formats, these silicone gasket-sealed devices are made of transparent plastic, which are competitively priced for disposable use. There are also autoclavable versions offered.
