Thermo Scientific Sorvall BIOS 16 centrifuge provides simplified, flexible bioprocessing

Designed to maximise productivity for bioprocessing applications, the new Thermo Scientific Sorvall BIOS 16 centrifuge offers an increased capacity of up to 16 litres of cell culture product per run and unique design features to make working with large volumes easier and more convenient.

In the increasingly complex, regulated and fast-paced bioprocessing environment, users require a centrifuge with simple operation and high-throughput capabilities that deliver run-to-run reproducibility while maintaining sample integrity. These elements are essential to manufacturing products in a scalable, consistent and safe manner. In the development and manufacturing of biological products, centrifuges that support separation and purification processes are typically larger and are used continuously. Therefore, users put a high priority on ergonomically designed platforms.

The Thermo Scientific Sorvall BIOS 16 centrifuge includes several features aimed at enhancing the user experience, including:

  • Auto-Door function: open and close the centrifuge door automatically using the simple push-button operation;
  • Auto-Lid function: instant rotor opening and closing with lid storage;
  • Centri-Touch interface: bright, highly visible and glove-friendly display simplifies run set-up;
  • Accumulated centrifugal effect (ACE) function: automatically adjust run time to account for and eliminate acceleration/deceleration variations that could otherwise lead to incomplete cell pelleting;
  • Centri-Vue remote monitoring: check run status or see available centrifuges from the mobile app.
  • Eco-Spin technology: take advantage of energy savings of up to 64% using windshielded rotors.

The new Sorvall BIOS 16 bioprocessing centrifuge offers the flexibility to select higher-capacity rotors or match existing workflows, with a choice of four swinging bucket rotors ranging from 6 x 1,000 mL to 8 x 2,000 mL.
