MINNEAPOLIS, MN – 25 Apr, 2017 – New Revolutionary Science Micro Centrifuge Serves Key Role in Culturing Mammalian Cells, HPLC and CRISPR / CAS9 Protocols
With centrifugation speeds now as low as 1,000 RPM and as high as 11,000 RPM, the new RS-200 by Revolutionary Science is engineered to handle the demands of mammalian cells, HPLC, and CRISPR applications. “Applications like spinning mammalian cells and HPLC prep require vastly different performance requirements” states Isaac Erickson, the Chief Technology Officer at Revolutionary Science. “There has a been a demand for microcentrifuges that can handle G-Force [RCF] as low as 48 and as high as 7500 for these cutting edge experiments.”
In the search for alternative, renewable energy sources, algae has presented itself as a viable option according to the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. To study algae requires a microcentrifuge capable of low G-Force to culture the cells. The RevSpin 200 is one of the few microcentrifuges that can spin at a low speed of 1,000RPM, a crucial feature for mammalian cell growth. At higher speeds, the centrifugal force can rupture the cell wall. That won’t happen in the RevSpin 200, because the G-force can be set for speeds as slow as 48 RCF. Everything from Mammalian cells, CRISPR / CAS9 Gene editing, HPLC sample prep, or even protein and DNA extraction, the RS-200 handles nearly every task, smoothly and efficiently. The versatile functionality allows for labs to do more with less equipment.
As seen in the recently released product video, the American made micro centrifuge comes standard, with a 16-tube rotor. If the 16-tube rotor isn’t correct for the job, the RS-200 also has a PCR strip rotor option. Unlike the old RS-200, which could only spin in intervals of 2,000 RPM up to a maximum of 10,000 RPM. The new RS-200 spins from 1,000 RPM, all the way up to a powerful 11,000 RPM, with intervals of 1,000 RPM.
The RS-102 micro centrifuge, the RS-200’s sister product is prominently featured on one of Hollywood’s most popular crime shows, CSI, due to its extreme durability. Matt Lannoo of Revolutionary Science stated, “As seen in the product’s promotional video, the rugged ABS resin and simple controls make it a great asset to the show’s forensics laboratory.”
The RS-200 also is equipped with a smart technology safety feature, that is able to detect when the rotor is slightly out of balance. There is no hassle or worry over the machine breaking down due to mishandling.
