Sanyo/MSE Hawk 15/05 Refrigerated

MSE Centrifuge Catalogues

A refrigerated microcentrifuge designed to be used in a wide variety of life science applications, especially biochemical and genetic research. The use of a powerful brushless motor means that high speeds and consequently higher 'g' forces up to 23.140 can be achieved.

Sanyo's advanced refigeration technology means that the Hawk features a precool facility and can maintain 4C with a fully loaded rotor at the maximum speed of 15,000rpm. Designed as a compact unit the Hawk takes up to a minimum of bench space.

The easy to use control pad has been developed so that operators need minimal training to be able to use the Hawk. The hawk is simple to order as the unit comes supplied with the 26 x 2.0ml rotor. Other rotors and a sealing lid are available as optional accessories.

MSE have always had an enviable reputation for their bench top centrifuges and the Harrier range continues this tradition. in addition to the existing Harrier 15/80, the Harrier 18/80 refrigerated is designed for routine laboratory use and has the additional facility of being able to centrifuge samples at sub-ambient temperatures. Both centrifuges represent excellent value for money in terms of performance, ease of use, safety and reliability.

Automatic rotor indentification system
The Harrier range incorporates an automatic rotor identification system. This important feature ensures that the centrifuge regognises the rotor in use and prevents it from being used beyond its safe maximum speed. As the centrifuge identifies the rotor in use, it can also work out the 'g' force at any set speed. This means the centrifuge can convert rpm to 'g' and vice versa once in use.

Microprocessor controlled induction drive
The harrier range utilises an induction motor for maintenance free long life operation. This motor has no carbon brushes so not only is there no need for routine maintenance but there is no build-up of carbon dust inside the centrifuge. This makes it suitable for use in clean environments. Microprocessor control combined with the frequency driven motor ensue accurate operation for run to run reproducibility.

Refrigerated version available
The Harrier 18/80 Refrigerated combines all the capabilities of the proven Harrier 15/80 in a refrigerated format. The selectable temperature range is from -9C to +40C and uses CFC-free R134a refrigerant gas. This means that in refrigerant terms, the harrier 18/80 Refrigerated complies with all the regulations pertaining to the Montreal Protocol.

High speed microtube rotor
The use of the induction motor provides another benefit in that higher rotational speeds can be achieved. This allows the Harrier range to have a maximum speed in excess of 15,000 rpm with the 24 place microtube rotor.

The addition of regrigeration in the Harrier 18/80 Refrigerated unit allows the microtube rotor an increase in speed to 18,000 rpm giving a maximum 'g' force of 28,980 'g'.

Wide range of accessories available
For routine bench top work, the 4 x 200ml swing out rotor and 200ml sealed buckets are available on the Harrier 15/80. A recent addition on the Harrier 18/80R is the 4 x 200ml windshielded rotor. This uses the same 200ml buckets as used on the Harrier 15/80 but with an increased speed capability of 6,466 'g'. These, combined with a wide range of adaptors, can accomodate most manufacturers' tubes. As well as the swing out rotor, other angle rotors and specialist rotors are available.

Gallenkamp - Orbital Incubator

For over 30 years Sanyo Gallenkamp has had an enviable reputation for its range of orbital Incubators. This is now set to continue with a new range incorporating the latest technology, superior illumination and CFC free temperature control.

Sanyo Gallenkamp Orbital Incubators are ideally suited to culturing micro-organisms and cells under strict conditions of temperature, time, light and agitation. The constant motion allows effective aeration with the wide 32mm orbital action reducing buffeting of shear sensitive cells.

The Sanyo Gallenkamp range comprises three versions; the Basic Unit; the Refrigerated Unit; and the Illuminated Refrigerated Unit.

Basic Unit

The new unit incorporates microprocessor control for both temperature and agitation speed. Temperature control is achieved via a recirculating fan and appropriate ducting to achieve uniform temperature control. A unique temperature sensor shield is now incorporated to ensure accurate chamber temperature sensing. This helps to ensure reproducible results.

A new platform has been designed which will accept standard conical flasks from 25ml to 2000ml. The platform now has a matrix of threaded holes drilled into it. The clips used to retain the flasks simply screw directly onto the platform. This enables the configuration of the clips to be changed without removing the platform from the incubator.

Provision has been made to allow alternative atmospheres to be introduced to the chamber if required. Gas leakage is kept to a minimum to ensure economic usage.

The wide 32mm orbit allows maximum agitation of samples on the platform with the minimum of buffeting. Speeds of between 20 and 400 revolutions per minute can be set and controlled repeatedly.

Accessory cooling coil
To operate the unit at, near or just below ambient temperature, a cooling coil can be fitted. This needs to be connected to a cool water supply pr a water recirculator.

An independent over-temperature protection thermostat protects the culture from excessive heating. For operator safety, the platform stops rotating when the lid is opened. When the lid is closed, the platform automatically starts rotating again. A control panel lock switch is also provided to prevent accidental alteration of parameters.

A new state-of-the-art programmer now allows the operator to utilise the orbital incubator to its maximum potential. Although the parameters of temperature, orbital speed and time can be simply entered, with the digital programmer there is the potential to automatically change the temperature using a 3 step program. These temperature changes can be cycled up to 99 times or continuously. A memory will retain the 3 most commonly used programs thus saving time. An RS 485 output provides the facility to monitor performance independently on a PC.

Refrigerated Unit

This model has all the features of the basic unit, but includes refrigeration which allows incubation at temperatures down to 20C below ambient. An under-temperature safety thermostat is included to protect the culture from excessive cooling.

In common with other Sanyo products, this model features CFC free refrigeration using the latest technology available. naturally, the foamed in place insulation used on all models is also CFC free.

Illuminated Refrigerated Unit

Where photosynthesis forms part of the culture, illumination is provided with this model.

6 x 30W fluorescent lights are built into the lid to provide a maximum of 10,2000 lux. Most illumination systems adjust light levels in the incubator by switching lights on and off. Sanyo Gallenkamp has used its considerable plant growth expertise when designing the lighting system. Therefore the new orbital incubator has a variable controller to adjust the light from 20 - 100% in 1% intervals. This advanced system gives superior light distribution over other models.

The incubator is able to automatically control temperature changes which can be linked with the option of controlling the light intensity and speed of the platform. the programmer allows the operator to automatically simulate might and day conditions by controlling light and dark at different temperatures.
