Avanti J-26S Series High Performance Centrifuge from Beckman Coulter

The Avanti® J-26S centrifuge series is the only high-performance system you’ll ever need. Experience simplified high-throughput sample processing and more control with powerful features including low heat output, imbalance tolerance and quiet performance.

  • Easy to operate
  • Built-in safety features
  • Application versatility


Application Versatility

  • Process six liters of fermentor output in less than 10 minutes
  • Deliver a subcellular fraction at 82,000 x g
  • Run 24 microplates at a time
  • Separate live cell populations with elutriation

Complete BioSafety* systems for ultimate peace of mind

  • BioCertified** rotors, instruments and labware with microbiological aerosols
  • Sterile filters prevent discharge of infectious materials

Dual-System Rotor Recognition for operator safety

  • Automatically detect which rotor is installed
  • Prevent rotors from running above maximum-rated speeds while maintaining the run  
  • Friction Reduction System for faster, quieter and more energy-efficient runs
  • Lightweight J-Lite Rotors for reduced run times and high g-force
  • Ergonomic Earth-Friendly Design
  • Optimal working surface height for easier loading and unloading of rotors
  • Each instrument saves approximately 9.6 pounds of post-consumer materials from the landfill
