Thermo Forma 5530 1L GP Centrifuge with IEC 243 Swinging Bucket Rotor. This centrifuge is not refrigerated. The rotor consists of 4 each 51138 272.0g Buckets and 4 each 6562 139.0g Aero Carrier adapters (9 x 10-15 mL capacity). Overall this unit is in exceptionally good condition as pictured. The only flaw I could find is the hydraulic rod that helps to open and hold open the lid is weak and needs to be replaced. When opening the lid you have to push the "open lid" button and then manually pull it open. It also does not hold the lid in the open position for very long. Other than that the unit functioned properly on various settings and ran very quiet. "The Thermo Forma 1L GP Centrifuge is a 1 Liter High Performance Centrifuge designed for a variety of medical, industrial, and scientific applications that will meet your separation and concentration requirements. Its fail-safe cover interlock ensures that the cover is closed before a run begins and it keeps the cover closed for operator safety. This instrument has up to 99 specific run parameters that can be easily programmed and saved for future use. In addition, this centrifuge has a rugged steel cabinet construction to ensure quiet operation and long term reliability. An automatic circuit breaker protects the unit from damaging power surges, and its suction feet anchor the centrifuge to your work surface to maintain stability and prevent "walking." This high-speed centrifuge is benchtop size for multipurpose and convenient use with multiple power configures (internationally-friendly)."
