Laboratory Centrifugation

Eppendorf MiniSpin Plus mini centrifuge for small volume centrifugation

Centrifuges and microcentrifuges are used in microbiology, tissue culture, molecular biology, genomics, clinical applications, drug discovery, and proteomics. They should be selected based on spin speed and g-force, application, sample size, throughput, and footprint. We offer a selection of centrifuges, rotors, buckets, and adapters to fit your processing needs.

Eppendorf® centrifuges

As an integral part of the Eppendorf® Microliter System, Eppendorf® introduced their very first centrifuge in 1964. Eppendorf® offers a comprehensive line of centrifuges including mini-centrifuges, microcentrifuges, compact centrifuges, and high capacity benchtop centrifuges with and without refrigeration capabilities to fulfill your daily laboratory requirements. Whether you want to spin a few tubes or you demand extra versatility for handling larger tube volumes or plates, Eppendorf® has the centrifuge solution for you.

Hettich centrifuges

Hettich centrifuges are known for their reliable functionality and for their fast and easy operation. These centrifuges, and their corresponding accessories, are exclusively designed and manufactured with the end-users needs in mind. The product range accommodates a diverse functionality including microcentrifuge, conical, and large-scale tube and bottle capabilities as well as microtiter plate and cytology applications.

StripSpin 12 mini centrifuges

StripSpin 12 Mini Centrifuges from Benchmark are designed for centrifugation of 12-position PCR strips. With a fixed speed that produces 2,000 x g, these centrifuges are perfect for quick spin downs. Simply close the lid and the unit quickly ramps up to 5500 rpm. Open the lid, and the rotor quickly decelerates for removal of samples.

MyFuge Mini-centrifuges

The MyFuge Mini centrifuge is a personal centrifuge that virtually fits in the palm of your hand. Ideal for quick spin downs of microtubes and PCR tubes, the MyFuge is extremely easy to use. Capability of speeds up to 6,000 rpm, an increased capacity, eight-position microtube rotor is included and comes installed. Also included is a second rotor for 0.2 mL PCR tubes and strips which is stored in a convenient compartment on the bottom of the centrifuge.

Corning LSE™ Centrifuges

  • The Corning LSE™ Mini Microcentrifuge is a personal bench top instrument that operates at a fixed speed of 6,000 rpm (2,000 x g) and was designed for quick spin downs of micro-samples. It offers a quick release rotor system that eliminates the need for tools to exchange rotors with an ergonomic design for comfortable handling.
  • The Corning LSE™ high speed microcentrifuge features an easy-to-use, digital control interface and high-speed performance for quick nucleic acid and protein separations. Two control knobs are used to precisely set rotor speed and run time, and parameters are shown on the easy-to-read LED displays. This microcentrifuge incorporates a brushless drive and unique air cooling system to both reduce noise and minimize sample heating even during prolonged runs at maximum speed, allowing fast acceleration to a maximum speed 13,300 rpm/16,300 x g.
  • The Corning LSE™ compact centrifuge is a space saving centrifuge ideal for use in life science and industrial research labs. Four angle rotors are available for this centrifuge, including an innovative combination rotor designed by Corning to allow for greater versatility. This multi-purpose rotor can accommodate various tube sizes including a 5 mL microcentrifuge tube as well as round and conical bottom 15 mL and 50 mL centrifuge tubes.

Labnet Centrifuges

  • Labnet Mini Microcentrifuges operate at a fixed speed of 6,000 rpm (x g) and were designed for quick spin downs of microsamples. Operation is made simpler and more convenient with the design of a quick-release rotor system and electronic brake. Once samples are loaded and the lid is closed, the rotor rapidly accelerates to 6,000 rpm. This speed range is ideal for bringing small droplets to the bottom of the tubes for micro-filtrations or as basic separations.
  • The Labnet Slide Spinner is designed for drying microarray slides before scanning. It dries two slides in as little as 10 seconds for quality imaging and screening results. The slides are placed into cassettes that catch all liquid without splashing. Cassettes are reusable.
  • Labnet’s Prism™ Mini Centrifuge is compact and economical, allowing each workstation to be equipped with a “personal” centrifuge. The Prism™ Mini can be used for a wide range of molecular biology separations and quick spins. The centrifuge was designed to be extremely compact with an exceptionally small footprint.
  • Labnet’s MPS 1000 Mini Plate Spinner is the first centrifuge designed specifically for quick and easy centrifugation of samples in PCR plates or microplates.
  • The Spectrafuge™ 16M is the perfect high-speed compact microcentrifuge. Producing a maximum of 16,000 x g, it is the ideal unit for DNA applications.
