• Maintain a radius of at least 30 cm around the centrifuge.

• Implementation of special measures which ensure that no one can approach the centrifuge forlonger than absolutely necessary while it is running.

• The mains plug must be freely accessible at all times. Pull out the power supply plug ordisconnect the power supply in an emergency.

Precautions

In order to ensure safe operation of the Sorvall Legend XT/XTR, the following general safety regulations must be followed:

• The centrifuge should be operated by trained specialists only.

• The centrifuge is to be used for its intended use only.

• Plug the centrifuge only into sockets which have been properly grounded.

• Do not move the centrifuge while it is running.

• Do not lean on the centrifuge.

• Use only rotors and accessories for this centrifuge which have been approved by Thermo FisherScientific. Exceptions to this rule are commercially available glass or plastic centrifuge tubes,provided they have been approved for the speed or the RCF value of the rotor.

• Do not use rotors which show any signs of corrosion and/or cracks.

• Do not touch the mechanical components of the rotor and do not make any changes to themechanical components.

P Precautions

Thermo Scientific Sorvall Legend XT v

• The lid emergency release may be used in emergencies only to recover the samples from the centrifuge, e.g. during a power failure (see section “Mechanical Emergency Door Release” on page 7-2).

• Never use the centrifuge if parts of its cover panels are damaged or missing.

• Do not touch the electronic components of the centrifuge or alter any electronic or mechanical components.

• Please observe the safety instructions.

Please pay particular attention to the following aspects:

• Location: well-ventilated environment, set-up on a level and rigid surface with adequate load-bearing capacity.

• Rotor installation: make sure the rotor is locked properly into place before operating the centrifuge.

• Especially when working with corrosive samples (salt solutions, acids, bases), the accessory parts and vessel have to be cleaned carefully.

• Always balance the samples.

Centrifuging hazardous substances:

• Do not centrifuge explosive or flammable materials or substances which could react violently with one another.

• The centrifuge is neither inert nor protected against explosion. Never use the centrifuge in an explosion-prone environment.

• Do not centrifuge inflammable substances.

• Do not centrifuge toxic or radioactive materials or any pathogenic micro-organisms without suitable safety precautions.

When centrifuging microbiological samples from the Risk Group II (according to the Bio-safety Manual" of the World Health Organization WHO), aerosol-tight biological seals have to be used.

For materials in a higher risk group, extra safety measures have to be taken.

• If toxins or pathogenic substances have gotten into the centrifuge or its parts, appropriate disinfection measures have to be taken (see “Disinfection” on page 6-3).

• Highly corrosive substances which can cause material damage and impair the mechanical stability of the rotor, should only be centrifuged in corresponding protective tubes.

IF A HAZARDOUS SITUATION OCCURS, TURN OFF THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE CENTRIFUGE AND LEAVE THE AREA IMMEDIATELY.

Intended Use

The centrifuge is to be used for separating materials of different density or particle size suspended in a liquid.

1-2 Sorvall Legend XT Thermo Scientific

Characteristics of the Sorvall Legend XT/XTRThe Sorvall Legend XT/XTR is an in-vitro diagnostics device according to the In-Vitro Diagnostics Directive 98/79/EC.

Several rotors with a wide range of tubes can be used.

The set speed is reached within seconds. The maintenance-free induction motor ensures quiet and low-vibration operation even at high speeds, and guarantees a very long lifetime.

The user-friendly control panel makes it easy to pre-set the speed, RCF value, running time, temperature, and running profile (acceleration and braking curves). You can choose between the display of speed and RCF or the entry mode.

These settings can be changed even while the centrifuge is running.

With the help of the PULSE key , you can also centrifuge a sample for just a few seconds, if called for.

The Sorvall Legend XT/XTR is equipped with various safety features:

• The housing and rotor chamber consist of steel plate, the interior of armour steel, while the front panel is made of high-impact resistant plastic.

• The lid is equipped with a view port and a lock.

• The lid of the centrifuge can only be opened while the centrifuge is switched on and the rotor has come to a complete stop. The centrifuge cannot be started until the lid has been closed properly.

• The integrated rotor detection systems ensures that no inadmissible speed settings can be preselected.

• Electronic imbalance recognition

• Lid emergency release: For emergencies only, e.g. during power failures (see “Mechanische Notentriegelung des Deckels” auf Seite 7-2)

Running time preselection

1. Press the TIME key in order to open the runtime selection menu. The display shows the message "Set Time".Enter the desired runtime in hh.mm

Note If an extremely low RCF value has been selected, it will be corrected automatically if the resulting speed is less than 300 rpm. This is because 300 rpm is the lowest selectable speed.

Explanation of RCF Value

The relative centrifugal force is given as a multiple of the force of gravity g. It is a unitless numerical value which is used to compare the separation or sedimentation capacity of various devices, since it is independent of the type of device. Only the centrifuging radius and the speed come into play in it:

r = centrifuging radius in cm

n = Rotational speed in rpm

The maximum RCF value is related to the maximum radius of the tube opening.

Remember that this value is reduced depending on the tubes and adapters used.

This can be accounted for in the calculation above if required.
