StatSpin Cytofuge 2 Cytocentrifuge

A quiet and compact cytocentrifuge system

The StatSpin Cytofuge 2 is a personal cytocentrifuge that costs thousands of dollars less but provides the same high-quality sample preparations as more expensive systems. Its simple, understandable controls and snap-seal filter concentrators make operation easier than ever before. 

HemoCue America distributes StatSpin products in the U.S., except to veterinary laboratories and veterinary offices.

Experience a rapid and simple way to concentrate cells onto a microscope slide with the Cytofuge 2. This is a microprocessor-controlled cell preparation system that uses centrifugal force to deposit cells onto microscope slides. It has easy-to-use controls and snap-seal filter concentrators for simple operation. Samples are conveniently processed quickly and quietly on the bench or in a safety cabinet.

Applications

The system is ideal for processing a complete range of body fluids:

  • Pleural fluids
  • Synovial fluids
  • Bronchial washings
  • Sputum
  • Fine-needle aspirate
  • Cerebrospinal fluids
  • Urine
  • Peritoneal fluids

Key features

  • Compact, low-profile design: The Cytofuge 2 can be used in a biological safety cabinet, preventing the need to carry the rotor back and forth to the centrifuge
  • Quiet operation: Samples are conveniently processed quickly and silently
  • Safety mechanisms: Reduce exposure to biohazards with covered rotor and chamber gaskets. A cover interlock system prevents operation until the centrifuge cover is securely latched and blocks access to spinning parts until the rotor has come to a complete stop
  • Wide range of applications: A broad range of selectable speed and run times enables precise replication of most procedures developed on other cytocentrifuge equipment
  • Patented rotor design: Eliminate trunnion carriers or bulky clamps

Safety Features

  • Cover interlock system
  • Leak-resistant rotor with transparent lid
  • Low-voltage drive system (24 V)
  • Designed to meet requirements of IEC-1010-2-020
