Lab Centrifuges Expanded Portfolio for Himac High-Speed and Ultracentrifuges
Eppendorf recently expanded its centrifuge offering with the acquisition Koki Holdings' centrifuge business, whose products are marketed globally under the brand name Himac.
The introduction of the Himac portfolio under the Eppendorf umbrella began with the launch of the CP22N and CP30NX high-speed, floor-standing centrifuges in 2021 and has now been completed with the addition of the CP-NX and CS-(F)NX series ultracentrifuges this month. These new models complement the portfolio with comprehensive solutions for customers working in fields such as molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology. The extended product line, which includes rotors, adapters, consumables and services, enables Eppendorf to provide centrifugation solutions for an even broader range of applications at speeds up to 150,000 rpm (1,050,000 x g).
The ergonomic design of the new premium ultracentrifuges and micro-ultracentrifuges — including a large touch screen, fast start-up time, compact design, and low noise level — provides quick and comfortable operation. The rotor life management system of the CP-NX series enables convenient tracking of rotor usage, eliminating the need for manual log books and extending the overall rotor lifetime. Smart, non-contact imbalance sensors safeguard users during ultra-speed applications and allow for quick sample balancing by eye (within 5 mm sample height difference), with no need for scales.
