BioNex HiG

BioNex HiG
Manufacturer: BioNex Solutions
Model: HiG

The HiG centrifuge is the automated centrifuge. It is robot friendly and only requires power and communication for easy integration. The software is written in .NET for easy control within third-party software. The HiG has a two-bucket design that allows plates up to 60 mm tall to be spun singly or stacked. It provides complete control over spin time, acceleration/deceleration and top speed/g-force to accommodate a wide range of applications, from routine mixing to gently spinning down cells to pelletizing cellular debris.

Centrifuge Commands

  • Home

    void home()Homes the device.
  • Open Shield

    void openShield(int bucketIndex)Opens the shield and presents the specified bucket.

    Parameters:

    • bucketIndexIndex of the bucket. 1 – bucket #1; 2 – bucket #2 Minimum: 1 Maximum: 2 Default: 1
  • Get Estimated Cycle Time

    int getEstimatedCycleTime(int desiredGs, int accel, int decel, int spinTime)Gets a rough estimate of how long a spin cycle will take, given the specified parameters.

    Parameters:

    • desiredGsDesired Gs. Minimum: 250 Maximum: 5000 Default: 1000
    • accelAcceleleration as percent value. Minimum: 1 Maximum: 100 Default: 50
