The Equipement : Simple & versatile
Special features of AFI Centrifuge equipments
Maxi versatility and speed
AFI equipment evolves at the same time as your applications: they bring you the versatility to switch easily from one application to another.
The versatility of our equipment, including the swingout rotor, allows you to mix the accessories according to your needs:
Swing-out rotor : 5 350 x g max
Microplate rotor : 6 072 x g max
Angular rotor : 30 980 x g max
All rotors are equipped with the exclusive Clickspin™ system, allowing you to quickly and easily change the rotor.
No tools required
Automatic recognition of the rotor
Detection takes from 2 to 10 seconds, depending on the type of rotor.
There is no possible error in the choice of the parameters for the preparation of your samples.

The rotor is correctly installed, and can now be safely used
THE CONTROL CENTER
Secure & Intuitive
Intelligent and secure control center
The control center is the heart of the centrifuge: the touchscreen and all electronic components containing the user's data are integrated.
Recording of information: history, programs, number of cycles, errors…
Quick and easy data recovery
The immediate restoration of data is possible through the transfer of the electronic system of one to another.
The centrifuge notifies the user of the need to lubricate the system.
1 Visual alarm of end of cycle
10 minutes to change the control center and recover its data.
Intuitive control panel
The combination of a touch screen and a start/stop button allows you to program and use the centrifuge very easily, without risk of error or loss of data.
Very simple to use, with or without gloves, it allows a fast user adoption.

Optimize the repeatability of centrifugation
Our centrifuges are fitted with the Power Factor Correction (PFC) system. It maximizes the power of the centrifuge and allows perfect centrifugation in repeatability.
Worldwide Electrical Compatibility
The PFC automatically corrects voltage and current differences from the supply. In the event of a significant variation in your electrical network, the voltage supply remains constant in components, which maximizes the lifetime of centrifuge components.
100% guaranteed results
The PFC automatically provides a constant and uniform voltage to the centrifuge drive, allowing perfect centrifugation repeatability.The user enjoys constant quality in separations and a high reliability of the results.
Reinforced steel wall
Fully integrated with the design of the centrifuge, the steel wall has an 8 mm thick safety barrier. The centrifuge meets reduction of footprint on the workspace with optimization of the safety of the user.
The centrifuge detects unbalance and stops automatically if the load is not balanced.
The user can manually set imbalance tolerance levels.
Motorized closure lid
An automatic locking mechanism allows users to open and close the centrifuge lid effortlessly. It guarantees the safety of the user during the centrifugation…
Ergonomic closing of buckets
With ergonomic lids, buckets are completely sealed, guaranteeing certified biocontainment*
Hinge-mounted and equipped with a single catch, it is easy to open and to disassemble it.
