    Gain all the advantages of the ultimate thin-layer cell preparation system with the Thermo Scientific™ Cytospin™ 4 Cytocentrifuge. This reliable benchtop centrifuge provides economical thin-layer preparations from any liquid matrix, especially hypocellular fluids such as spinal fluid and urine.

    • Processes 12 specimens at one time
    • Accepts all protocols from Cytospin 1, 2 and 3
    • Allows for one-handed opening and closing with a redesigned lid-release mechanism
    • Enables viewing of the sealed head through the polycarbonate window during operation
    • Protects mechanical and electronic components from damage due to accidental fluid spills
    • Designed for easy disinfection
    • Meets stringent IEC 61010 safety standards

    Protects Users and Specimens
    • Allows loading of the sealed head inside a microbiological cabinet for ultimate safety
    • Features an auto-locking, plastic outer lid
    • Operates only when lid is locked and keeps lid locked during rotation
    • Includes disposable sample chambers with caps and a wipe-clean control panel
    • Sounds an audible alarm when the cytocentrifuge is out of balance, outside the speed tolerance or if the lid is not properly locked
    • Uses specimen safety alarms at one-minute intervals to remind users to remove specimens to prevent air drying and ensure consistent results

    Provides Excellent Presentation
    • The cytocentrifuge deposits cells onto a clearly defined area of a glass slide and allows for the absorption of the residual fluid into the sample chamber's filter card
    • Cytocentrifugation constructively flattens cells for excellent nuclear presentation
    • During operation, the instrument's spinning action tilts the Shandon™ Cytofunnels™ upright and centrifuges cells onto the deposition area of the slide, giving all cell types equal opportunity for presentation
    • In the Load or Stop position, the tilting feature reduces cell loss by preventing residual fluid from coming into contact with the prepared slide

    Offers Simple and Precise Controls
    • Pull-out program card logs up to nine programs for fast, convenient retrieval
    • Protected program memory stores up to 23 routines for instant recall and protects from power loss
    • Easy-touch program keypad allows for easier keystrokes and more intuitive programming
    • Speed window displays programmed spinning speeds from 200 to 2000rpm
    • Three acceleration-control buttons allow the operator the flexibility to protect fragile samples
    • Time window displays the programmed and remaining run time from 1 to 99
    • Control feature has a standby power-saving mode; displays are also turned on and off by the standby key
