Benchtop Centrifuges: An Important Product of the Lab
Made for blood sample preparation, cell culture processing, microplate applications and much more, benchtop centrifuges offer most efficient and fast centrifugation solutions for the lab in one single and compact instrument.
This type of centrifuges is an ideal fit for the labs with very limited space and various applications. Easy to function and ergonomically made, the centrifuges carry efficiency to a lab. For instance, most of the benchtop centrifuges accommodate Auto-Lock™ system that will quickly exchange the rotors for maximum throughput and application versatility.
Benchtop centrifuges are made with best quality materials for durability and strength, all along with the chemical resistance, for consistent and uptime performance that you expect from the workhorses of a lab.
Different Kinds of Benchtop Centrifuges
Check out the different kinds of benchtop centrifuges available.
- Mini centrifuges: The centrifuges occupy very less space than other benchtop centrifuges out there. They can easily process 8 tubes and have speed of over 6000 rpm. Whereas such centrifuges are perfectly suited for the research labs with very less space, they may not be a best choice for the high output labs.
- Microcentrifuges: These are benchtop equipment appropriate for processing the low-volume samples, with small footprint & capacity to process over 48 microtubes. They will provide the speed of 6000 rpm and process volumes of 2ml.
- Refrigerated Centrifuges: The refrigerated centrifuges are used for temperature-sensitive samples by researchers as even mild change in the temperature will ruin its samples. These are similar in the design to non-refrigerated counterparts. But, they allow the temperature control in range of -10oC – 40oC.
- Plate Centrifuges: This type of centrifuge is used in the PCR laboratory. These centrifuges make sure all reagents stay at a bottom of wells for right concentrations & precise results. The plate centrifuges allow horizontal spin at 400xg speed. The benchtop centrifuges have peculiar “wing-out design” that will prevent spillage.
