The key features of the COBE 2991 cell processor are its centrifuge and its flexible diaphragm. When the centrifuge is spinning, the flexible diaphragm located inside the centrifuge bowl can be inflated with hydraulic fluid. As the flexible diaphragm inflates, it presses against the bottom of the cell processing bag. This gives the COBE 2991 cell processor the ability to express fluids and/or cells for removal or collection during centrifugation. The clear centrifuge cover allows you to visually observe cell separation and fluid expression.
