The Beckman Coulter GS-6R Centrifuge is a laboratory instrument used to separate and purify biological samples such as cells, proteins, and nucleic acids. The centrifuge works by spinning samples at high speeds, generating a centrifugal force that separates the different components of the sample based on their density and size.
The GS-6R is a refrigerated centrifuge, which means it has a cooling system that allows samples to be processed at low temperatures, reducing the risk of damage or denaturation of heat-sensitive samples. It has a maximum speed of 6,000 rotations per minute (RPM) and can accommodate a range of sample sizes and types, including tubes, bottles, and microplates.
The GS-6R centrifuge is commonly used in various scientific fields, including biochemistry, molecular biology, and microbiology. It is used for applications such as cell culture, protein purification, DNA and RNA extraction, and virus isolation. It is designed to be a reliable and efficient tool for researchers and technicians to process and analyze biological samples.
