The Shandon Cytospin 3 Centrifuge offers excellent preparations. As the centrifuge produces a monolayer of cells within a clearly defined area, the cytofunnels load in a tilted position to prevent cell loss. They also move to an upright position during operation to deposit cells. Additionally, the Cytospin 3 is equipped with a sealed head protects the user from the danger of aerosoling pathogenic samples. Within the safety of a microbiological cabinet, the cytoclips load and unload easily without contact with the sample. The Shandon Cytospin 3 centrifugeis a versatile and reliable cytocentrifuge which is ideal suited for applications inclusing hematology, oncology, cytology, rheumatology, virology, microbiology and immunochemistry. The Shandon Cytospin III was the first centrifuge to use low-speed centrifugal forces to separate and deposit monolayer of cells on slides, the Cytospin 3 centrifuge helps maintain cellular integrity. Simultaneously spinning up to 24 samples in 12 chambers, this Shandon centrifuge uses microtitre strips. A truly flexible instrument, the Cytospin 3 centrifuge has disposable sample chambers which are available in sizes to match the collection requirements of a wide range of samples. The Shandon Cytospin 3 centrifuge is useful in application areas such as hematology, oncology, cytology, histology, rheumatology, virology, serology, microbiology, and immunochemistry. Other features of the Cytospin 3 include: 9-program memory, programmable acceleration speeds (200-2,000 rpm) that ensure protection of all cell types, and disposable chamber compatibility of various sizes to accommodate a wide range of samples
Gain all the advantages of the ultimate thin-layer cell preparation system with the Thermo Scientific Cytospin 4 Cytocentrifuge. This reliable benchtop centrifuge provides economical thin-layer preparations from any liquid matrix, especially hypocellular fluids such as spinal fluid and urine.
The Thermo Scientific Hypercenter XP, also called the Shandon Hypercenter XP is a computer-controlled, fluid transfer tissue processor with automated fixation, dehydration, cleaning and paraffin infiltration features for tissue specimens. The Shandon Hypercenter XP features a Reagent Storage Module that does not allow reagent fumes to vent into laboratory atmosphere while it is in operation. This Shandon tissue processor also carries a flexible air bag which maximizes the system's air capacity, and an emergency carbon filter is utilized as an additional safety feature and only works if there is excess pressure. The Hypercenter XP tissue processor is design with an organized capacity of 180 cassettes, and can be configured as either a floor model or bench-top model. The Hypercenter XP enhances workflow with its One Command Module that can control up to five reaction and storage modules for processing capacity of up to 900 cassettes per load. Additionally, the multi-lingual processor software XP allows the operator to save as much as 9 customized programs and accommodate year 2000 changes. The Hypercenter XP Portable Wax Station also offers the option of a third wax bath which can be used as a final cleaning stage in the wax impregnation of specimens. The Wax Station can be conveniently located to the side of the Hypercenter XP Reaction Module, so that wax-impregnated specimens can be transported safely to an embedding station without messy wax spillages.
