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.

Data traceability

Recording of information: history, programs, number of cycles, errors…

Sample protection

Double password protection is possible on programs and on the opening of the centrifuge.

Quick and easy data recovery

The immediate restoration of data is possible through the transfer of the electronic system of one to another.

Preventive maintenance

The centrifuge notifies the user of the need to lubricate the system.

Work at the right temperature

AFI centrifuges assists the user in the temperature management of his samples.

Maximum 37°

The performance of the ventilation system on the ventilated model ensures a temperature below 37 ° C in the centrifuge.

4 ° C at any speed, for any accessory

On the refrigerated model, the power of the refrigeration system ensures a temperature of 4°C with any accessory at any speed (select quick pre-cool or pre-cool programs). The treatment of your temperature sensitive samples is

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.


Protection & Performance

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.

Imbalance detection

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.

Silent centrifuges

Attention has been paid to the reduction of noise and vibrations during the centrifugations.

Automatic disinfection and drying cycle

Centrifuges are equipped with an automatic disinfection and drying cycle.

This ensures the efficient daily cleaning of the stainless steel bowl.

A real timesaver for the user.
