Resource Type

  1. Cell separator


  1. Resource Description
    "The COBE 2991 Cell Processor provides operational reliability using automation for control and consistency: • Variable spin times and speeds allow separation of components through centrifugation • The agitate mode washes desired cell components with a choice of solutions • Fluids or cells are expressed by the action of hydraulic fluid against a flexible membrane <b>A reliable laboratory tool, the COBE 2991 Cell Processor includes:</b> • Centrifuge unit with a flexible diaphragm • Hydraulic system • Operator panel with program board • 5 pinch valves • Red cell detector • Secondary control panel • Centrifuge cover interlock latch system <b>Achieving results through automation:</b> Automated cell processing with the COBE 2991 Cell Processor provides a high level of control for reproducible results: • Three operations per cycle (start/spin, supernatant-out, agitate/wash-in) • Precise programming of variable spin times adds automated accuracy and time-savings • Programmable memory stores up to 10 protocols, with the ability to make changes during procedures for increased flexibility • Three stop options: call the operator, or end the packed cells and re-suspended options <b>Separating with centrifugal technology:</b> • Separation of product components based on specific gravities • Removal and/or collection of desired fraction • Addition and agitation of wash solutions to remove unwanted cells, debris and fluids"
