Beckman Coulter Rotor TLS-55
The TLS-55, rated for 55 000 rpm, is a swinging bucket rotor that holds four tubes and is used in Beckman Coulter OptimaTM MAX, MAX-E, TL, and TLX series tabletop ultracentrifuges. The TLS-55 rotor develops centrifugal forces that are suitable for rate zonal banding of proteins, viruses, and DNA from small sample volumes.
The rotor body and bucket caps are made of aluminum and are black-anodized for corrosion resistance. The buckets are titanium. Lubricated O-rings made of Buna N maintain atmospheric pressure inside the buckets during centrifugation. Buckets, bucket caps, and rotor body positions are numbered for your convenience. Bucket and cap assemblies are loaded from the top of the rotor; the titanium crossbars slide down into the slots provided in the rotor body.
The rotor and buckets are complete and in good condition. There is no rotor Stand included.
