Thermo Scientific Sorvall Legend X1 75004220

This machine has now been replaced by the Sorvall X1 Pro

Ideal for a wide range of general purpose applications including cell culture, bioproduction, blood separation and microbiology amongst others, the new Sorvall Legend X1 research centrifuge series feature a convenient 1.6 litre capacity (4 x 400ml) and is available in both ventilated and refrigerated units.

The research models offer a wider range of rotors and accessories than their routine counterparts, including high speed carbon fibre rotors from the Fiberlite range. Featuring an exceptionally clear display panel and 99 pre-set programs as opposed to the 6 featured by the routine models, the research series of centrifuges are perfect for a busy research environment.

Other additional features developed to assist in a research environment include the facility for setting the time of the run from when the rotor reaches speed, the ability to monitor and control the sample temperature as opposed to the bowl temperature of the centrifuge, and a password protection option to prevent un-authorised interruptions to sample runs.


Breakthrough capabilities:

  • High Capacity: Process up to 40 x 50 ml conical tubes (40% more) in a swinging bucket rotor, or up to 14 x 50 ml (100% more) in fixed angle configuration, for significantly increased capacity over competitive models in the same bench space.

  • Unmatched Versatility: The broadest range of rotors and adapters available in the industry, with a minimum of 16 rotor configurations, enables your lab to meet all processing needs.

  • Fiberlite Compatibility: Achieve higher G-force and faster speeds, and ensure exceptional security and efficiency with our robust, corrosion-free design with a Thermo Scientific Fiberlite rotor

  • Industry-Leading Energy Efficiency: Experience up to 40% energy consumption savings * on industry standard protocols, such as blood separation or conical tubes processing.

*based on internal benchmark

  • Compact, Ergonomic Design: Compact dimensions, ergonomic height and curved design ensure comfortable and space-efficient workspace.
