Falcon 6/300

The MSE Falcon 6/300 and 6/300R centrifuges are the successors to the hugely popular Mistral 3000e and 3000i. A powerful induction drive, 3 litre capacity benchtop centrifuge, the Falcon 6/300 range is avaliable in both refrigerated and non refrigerated versions. A range of adapters are available for use with almost any size tube or bottle. The Falcon 6/300 and 6/300R centrifuges represent excellent value for money in terms of performance, ease of use, safety and reliability.

Automatic Rotor Identification System

Both Falcon centrifuges incorporate the well known MSE automatic rotor identification system. This important feature ensures that the centrifuge recognises the rotor in use and prevents it from being used beyond its maximum speed. Once the centrifuge has identified the rotor it can also work out the ‘g’ force at any set speed. This means that the centrifuge can convert rpm to ‘g’ and vice versa once a run has commenced.

Microprocessor Controlled Induction Drive

Brushless induction drive motors have become a familiar feature in bench top centrifuges since they were first introduced by MSE in the early 1980s. Naturally both Falcons follow this tradition. Combined with microprocessor control, each version exhibits extremely accurate run to run reproducibility – an important feature for users where accountability for analysis and production is essential.

Fully Programmable

Operation of both units is fully programmable with a memory capability of up to 49 different programs. This includes all parameters such as speed (or ‘g’ force), time, acceleration rate, brake rate and temperature control.

Safety Features

MSE have always prided themselves on customer safety and the Falcon 6/300 and 6/300R prove to be no exception. Both centrifuges have a 7mm steel guard ring so that in the unlikely event that there should be a disruption, no debris can escape from the centrifuge. An imbalance sensor aborts a run if a significant imbalance is detected and a lid interlock prevents the lid from being opened when the rotor is in motion.

Wide Range of Accessories Available

Most centrifuge work can be accomplished using the 4 x 750ml windshielded rotor with an adapter that fits into the 750ml buckets. There is a wide selection of adapters available to suit most tube sizes, but even if you have an odd sized tube, MSE can make a bespoke set of adapters to suit your specific needs.

Microtitre carriers and special buckets for 250ml tissue culture bottles are available on the 4 x 750ml non–windshielded rotor only. The 8 x 200ml swing–out rotor and various angle rotors complete the full list of accessories making this one of the most versatile centrifuges on the market.
