- EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
The Thermo Shandon Cytospin 4 is an ultra-light, thin-layer cell preparation centrifuge, for any liquid matrix especially hypocellular fluids such as urine or spinal fluid. The cytocentrifuge can process up to 12 specimens at one time, by constructively flattens cells as it tilts cytofunnels upright, moving cells onto the deposition area of the slide. This action gives all cells of all types equal chances of presentation, while also reducing cell loss.
The Shandon Cytospin 4 accepts all protocols from its predecessors so adoption is simple. The pull out protected program memory card logs up to nine programs, and stores up to 23 routines for instant recall and access. Users can quickly program through the intuitive interface and tough keypad, and speed is shown on the digital window display. Speeds can be set between 200 to 2000rpm, with three acceleration buttons for flexible use and protection of delicate samples. The display window also shows the programmed and remaining run time from 1-99.
The redesigned lid-release mechanism allows for one-handed opening. For your safety, the lid remains locked during rotation. The operator can see the sealed head during cyto-centrifugation thanks to the polycarbonate window. The unit is resistant to accidental fluid spillage on the mechanism and electronic components and is designed for easy disinfection and is compliant with stringent IEC 61010 standards for centrifuge safety. The ultimate safety procedures of this centrifuge allow for easy loading of the sealed head in a microbiological cabinet. The cytocentrifuge features an auto-locking mechanism in the plastic outer lid with capped disposable sample chambers. Safety alarms protect both users and specimens during all stages of operation. Cleaning is also made easy thanks to the convenient wipe clean control panel.

Every piece of lab equipment that enters The Lab World Group receives a full preventative maintenance and quality control before being listed for sale. This ensures that all items ship within 1 to 3 days once your order is placed and that the lab equipment you receive is in pristine condition.
The first step is receiving the laboratory equipment into our facility. At that point regardless of the unit’s origin they are instantly decontaminated using both simple green and isopropyl alcohol. For the next step, the laboratory instruments are then entered into our inventory system where each piece of equipment receives its own tracking ID and history. The inventory management is a large part of our system ensuring each piece of equipment receives the appropriate care as well as for any consigned pieces our customers have perfect tracking of their assets.
The maintenance of the centrifuges, analyzers, incubators, etc are all unique to their functions in the lab. The preventive maintenance process for an analyzer is vastly different than an incubator or lab refrigerator. One of the major differences with The Lab World Group is we service all our own laboratory equipment and are experts in servicing everything from a vortexer to a Chromatography System.
The First step we undertake when testing your centrifuge is the same regardless of whether is refrigerated, a benchtop or ultra-centrifuge. We ensure the centrifuge is properly balanced on the floor. Next, we check the rotor for any chips or defects and weigh the buckets for appropriate weight. The key to properly running any centrifuge is to ensure the unit is always balanced both internal and external.
Next, we then check the unit for physical defects and worn parts such as missing drip pans, dings and dents, gas lid struts, LCD screens, centrifuge seals, rotor seals, lid locking mechanisms, etc. We then open the centrifuge and perform a full preventive maintenance on the unit. This includes lubricating and greasing any gears, parts, and mechanisms. The electronic boards are reviewed for defective or expiring electronic parts such as transistors or capacitors.
We then install the rotor and buckets and run the centrifuge at a low rpm to ensure it is balanced and running properly. Using a tachometer, we then calibrate the centrifuge at a low speed to ensure accuracy. After calibration of the centrifuge we then run it through continued testing. We test the unit for 20 minutes, 40 minutes and 60-minute cycles at various speeds. The various rcf and rpm tests allow us to test that low-speed calibration is holding at high centrifugation speeds.
Next the unit is given a secondary cleaning and decontamination. At that point we picture and video the unit to show you the exact centrifuge that you will be receiving including the specific rotor buckets and inserts. This ensures that once you order the centrifuge it can easily pass its additional outbound quality control and be shipped within 1 -3 days.
