Beckman Coulter Announces the Allegra X-14 High-Throughput Centrifuge
120-V, Three-liter Refrigerated or Constant-Temperature Models
Boost Reliable Lab Performance
BREA, CALIF. — (September 12, 2011) —
The Allegra X-14, a new three-liter benchtop centrifuge
from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences accepts a variety of tubes and adapters to provide reliable
performance in a range of applications. Refrigerated and constant-temperature models are offered
individually or in pre-bundled packages that provide everything needed for quick set-up in the
With a fixed-angle rotor, the X-14 provides a maximum speed of 10,200 rpm and delivers rcf
of 11,400 X g
. Swinging-bucket rotors can achieve a maximum speed of 4,300 rpm and rcf of 4,300 X g
and, utilizing a wide selection of tubes, bottles and plates, accommodate a range of sample types and volumes. Depending on rotor and labware, the Allegra X-14 can process as many as 148 tubes per cycle.
The refrigerated model offers a temperature range of 2 to 40°C, and features a robust cooling
system that brings samples from room temperature to 4°C in less than four minutes, reducing wait time and enabling runs to be processed efficiently. The constant-temperature model is pre-set to 20°C.
Allegra X-14 series units can be equipped with exclusive ARIES Smart Balance rotor
technology, which automatically detects and corrects sample-load imbalances of up to 50 grams. This saves time by easing sample prep requirements, eliminating mid-run interruptions and reducing wear by correcting imbalances before damage can occur.
