The Z306 is a compact and economical centrifuge with a series of rotor options making it well suited for clinical, industrial, and research laboratories. Despite the impressive capacity of the 4 x 145ml rotor (capable of supporting 8 x 50ml or 12 x 15ml with the use of rotor inserts), the Z306 is surprisingly compact with a footprint of just over 14 x 18 inches. An optional rotor is also available for microplates (2 x 3 microplates), positioning this model as one of the smallest, and least expensive centrifuges capable of high speed microplate centrifugation.
Advanced microprocessor controls allow for instant rotor identification, which automatically converts the rotational speed to the relevant g-force (rcf), preventing the user from setting a speed above the capabilities of the installed rotor. In addition to retrieving saved programs, the easy to use front panel can adjust accel/decel rates, and change the end of run alarm tone.
