NIX-521, a dual-temp centrifuge that combines functions of refrigerated centrifuge and thermostatic centrifuge provide wide temperature setting range (－9℃ to 42℃). Thermostatic function with centrifuge is used for application such as “Gene transfer to hemopoietic stem cell” and “Development of vector for anti-cancer immunity”.
NIX-521 has function of air circulation, which left heated air in and out from bottom of chamber lid. Because of these inlet and outlet of air at bottom of chamber lid, no heater element is in chamber for safety.
Three-step acceleration and three-step and natural deceleration
Initial values for acceleration and deceleration characteristics are set from 0 to 500rpm, however, they can be varied up to maximum speed in 100rpm increments by function settings.
* Under the conditions: set temperature of 4℃ at an ambient temperature of 25℃.

From micro tubes to 250ml bottles
The NIX-521, with the ability to accommodate micro tubes to 250ml bottles or deep well plates, is ideal for wide range of applications. Using an optional bucket cap kit B433*, various types of rotors including swinging bucket rotors of biohazard-proof can be mounted.
Convenient flashing function
Convenient flashing function allows operation with preset centrifuging conditions.
*Bucket cap kit B433 is an optional kit.
This highly sealed rotor, which has been tested and certified by the Health Protection Agency (HPA, UK) to be compliant with the International Standard (Annex AA of the IEC 61010-2-020), meets requirements for biohazard safety. [Bucket cap kit B433] is an optional kit.
Easy to see and operate control panel
Easy-to-see LCD monitor display shows various information including remaining run time, error messages, rotor types in use and records of centrifugal operation. The monitor can display in English or Japanese.
Dual color LED display allows the user to monitor the operation status just by looking the display; red indicates that the rotor is spinning while green indicates the rotor is stopped.
Popular user-friendly Jog Dial equipped with an <ENTER> button on top enables setting to be changed quickly and more surely.
Safety & Ecology
Flap-drive system for safer and more efficient operation
Innovative Flap-drive system employed to maintain safe and efficient centrifugal operation allows a margin of error and eye-balancing of sample tubes.
*Some rotors are excepted.
- Non-chlorine, ozone-friendly refrigeration medium which has zero ozone layer destruction coefficients is adopted.
The Flex-Spin Drive features a flexible motor shaft that equalizes minor imbalances without damaging the centrifuge or triggering the imbalance protection system. This allows excellent tolerance for minor differences in sample volumes.
One-push rotor locking knob
With a single knob push, the rotor can be quickly and securely fixed.
*Some rotors are excepted.
