The Thermo Scientific Sorvall RC 12BP Plus is a floor-standing centrifuge for blood banking and bioprocessing. It can process up to twelve blood bags of up to 500 ml each, or, fitted with H-12000 large-capacity swinging bucket rotors, six 2,000 ml Nalgene bio-bottles, which have wide mouths for simple decanting, re-suspensions and pellet removal. The Accumulated Centrifugal Effect (ACE) function ensures run-to-run reproducibility, automatically compensating for variations in acceleration due to different rotor loadings. Precise control of acceleration and deceleration retains sample integrity, even during delicate low-speed pelleting applications, the company says. The user interface includes one-touch recall of up to 15 protocols, as well as a security key to prevent unauthorized access. Optional Centri-Log data collection software improves quality control, process traceability and component tracking.
