2Equipped with a newly developed “W-Memory Program” , the KITMAN is a highly reliable workhorse in biological research laboratories.

TOMY’s newest high speed refrigerated micro centrifuge, the “KITMAN” is equipped with a unique program operation function for a continuous run of any two memories coupled in series.This function meets the requirements of various sample protocols, including DNA/RNA extraction and purification, and offers increased efficiency and validity in complicated centrifuge operation. This centrifuge also features a long established easy-to-use design with versatile, advanced functions, plus energy-saving mode, all in a compact body.Designed with the needs of biotechnology researchers in mind, the “KITMAN” is a new reliable laboratory workhorse.

Product features

Various program operations & multi-memory function

  • In addition to a multi-memory function that allows recall of up to 6 sets of operating conditions at one touch of a button, the “KITMAN” also provides a newly developed program operation function, with which two memories are coupled in series to achieve a continuous run operation. This function enables any combinations of three program patterns to be operated in a single protocol, and supports a wide variety of kits and protocols for DNA/RNA extraction and purification that require 2ml micro tubes.
  • The reaction time of reagents can also be programmed, which allows the operator to make good use of the time for the reaction to be completed, as well as eliminates the operator’s failure to remember the timing. This will enhance the efficiency and validity of the laboratory work.

Easy-To-See LED Display

The control panel features easy-to-see LED display that allows the operator to easily confirm a set temperature, speed and time at a glance.

Convenient Function Keys

Function keys allow settings to be changed or modified to suit specific requirements.

  • Acceleration/deceleration characteristics preset speed setting
  • “FLASH” (momentary spin) function setting (mode and speed)
  • Buzzer setting (type and time)
  • Lid-up monitoring time setting
  • Power saving mode setting

Two-Mode “FLASH” Function

“FLASH” or a quick run function for momentary spin provides the following two modes:

  1. Short-term operation of the centrifuge will continue at set speed as long as the “FLASH” key remains pressed.
  2. With one push of the key the rotor begins to accelerate and will start deceleration when it reaches set speed.

Power Saving Mode

7When operation standby status continues for a long time, the power saving mode becomes active and stops the fan and refrigerator. During the power saving mode, the panel display indicates “oFF”. The idle time before the power saving mode is entered can be set between 1 and 12 hours. (The default time is 4 hours.)

PRE-TEMP Function

With the PRE-TEMP function air inside the chamber is stirred by spinning the rotor, which allows the rotor to reach set temperature quickly. It takes approximately 5 minutes to reach the set temperature of 4°C from the ambient temperature of 25°C. The result is an optimal function that supports temperature-sensitive samples. When the temperature inside the chamber increases in the power saving mode, the function can also cool the chamber effectively, saving time and energy.

Easy-To-Install Compact Design

8Its compact body with a width of 29cm takes up very little lab space.

High Grade, Affordable Centrifuge

Equipped with upgraded functions, the TOMY “KITMAN” delivers higher performance at an affordable price.
