The Beckman Coulter Airfuge is an air-driven, super-compact ultracentrifuge designed for a variety of applications. With its excellent capability to provide a simple and fast method for removing chylomicrons, the Airfuge system brings reliable results for lipemic clarifications and eliminates the need for sendouts. This Beckman ultracentrifuge can also be employed for applications in electron microscopy, lipoprotein assays, receptor-binding studies, and food processing quality assurance.

Even as a compact unit, the Airfuge air-driven centrifuge delivers results in a fraction of the time that larger units would. The high g-force and short path length combination produces remarkably short run times. For advanced speed readouts, an optional digital speed readout accessory is available.

The Beckman Airfuge ultracentrifuge is designed to streamline centrifugal applications. Operating near ambient temperature, the unit reaches top speed in only 30 seconds and decelerates smoothly to keep sample contents separated. Additionally, the centrifuge offers timed runs up to five hours with hold position for longer runs.

The Beckman Coulter Airfuge air-driven ultracentrifuge also offers enhanced versatility with a variety of rotors. It can work with batch rotor pellets particles for large samples, electron microscopy rotor sediments for very small volumes, and four fixed angle rotors that generate high speeds and forces necessary to perform a variety of tasks.
