A Hip Lab Assistant

Like all other centrifuges, laboratory centrifuges work by the sedimentation principle, where the centripetal acceleration is used to separate substances of greater and lesser density. To give you a scenario, for testing your blood, a sample of it is put into centrifuge tips and placed into a lab centrifuge to separate its components, which is then analyzed. Here we have the LABCENT jazzing up a lab’s tabletop coz even though the stream may sound too intense, even scientists can do with some hot looking gadgets in their labs!

Typically we have two sizes for lab centrifuge: normal and microcentrifuges and stability is an important factor to be considered while designing them. LABCENT is the normal one and incorporates a big heavy base making it quite sturdy and stable; after all spinning at those high speeds can make anything go woozy! A big OLED touchscreen on the lid of device houses all the function keys and to make things simpler an icon menu has been included for navigation. Feed cables and all necessary ports are situated on the back side of centrifuge, making it a very practical design.
