Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

The manual

The blurb from a product description: The Z233 M2 microcentrifuge has been designed to provide total control over operating parameters. A microprocessor, brushless induction drive, high speed capabilities, and unmatched capacity make the Z233 M2 the ultimate in high performance.

Operating parameters, including speed/g-force and run time are set using easy to turn knobs while their values are shown on large digital displays. Both rpm and g-force can be displayed during a run. Acceleration and deceleration rates can be set at fast or slow. Momentary spins are achieved by pressing the quick button.

A rugged housing, heavy duty lid lock and hinge as well as a stainless steel bowl make the Z233 M2 microcentrifuges durable workhorses. Several rotor options are available.
