LMC-3000, Laboratory Centrifuge

Description

LMC-3000 is a modern low-speed bench-top centrifuge designed for operation with microtest plates and centrifuge tubes up to 50 ml. This device is widely used in biomedical profile laboratories.

Features:

  • Soft start and run-down of the rotor;
  • User-friendly setting of centrifugation parameters (speed and time) and simultaneous display of both set and actual values;
  • Safe operation at any speed is provided by metal protection chamber and case cover, automatic stop at imbalance and a lock keeping the lid closed while the centrifuge is running;
  • Rotor selection;*
  • Setting rotor speed in RPM or RCF;*
  • Multiple acceleration (Slow, Normal, Fast) and deceleration (0, Slow, Normal, Fast) modes and possibility to switch off forced braking;*
  • Low noise level;
  • Wide choice of accessory rotors.

Frequently asked questions

Is it possible to turn off forced breaking?

Yes, this function has been introduced from May 2015. By default, centrifuge applies force to stop the rotor. To toggle between forced braking and free braking, press Open key and hold it for 8 s. Using ▼ and ▲ TIME keys, choose between BRAKE OFF (free braking) and BRAKE ON (forced braking). Press and hold Open key for 8 s to exit.

Is it possible to use glass tubes in LMC-3000?

Yes, but only high quality glass tubes for centrifugation, otherwise we do not recommend to use glass tubes.
