The multipurpose, high-speed Avanti® J-26 XP, capable of processing up to six liters in less than ten minutes, is an ideal solution for multi-user, multi-protocol labs.  

With a full range of rotors, adapters and sample carriers, the Avanti-26 XP Series offers incredible versatility to support your research needs for many years to come.


A single J-26 XP can process six liters of fermentor output in less than ten minutes, deliver a subcellular fraction at 82,000 x g, run 24 microplates at a time and separate live cell populations with elutriation.

  • Shorter cycle times and no waiting for your sample at the end of a run  with high-torque, switched reluctance (SR)* technology
  • User-defined acceleration and deceleration rates for improved efficiency, yield and confidence
  • Full containment barrier, automatic rotor identification and enhanced biosafety for greater lab safety
  • Extensive rotor library including lightweight carbon fiber designs, fixed-angle, swinging bucket and elutriation**
  • Compatible with J-Lite rotors
  • Quieter, cooler and less energy use than traditional centrifuges
