Product News: Mini Centrifuge Sets New Standards for Capacity and Flexibility

03 May 2011

A Mini Centrifuge, which eliminates the need to change rotors when switching between microtubes and PCR strips and provides twice the capacity of traditional mini centrifuges, has been introduced by CLEAVER SCIENTIFIC (CSL). The multifuge features an innovative duoROTOR design that enables the simultaneous spinning of 12 microtubes and 4 PCR strips which effectively doubles its capacity compared to most conventional mini centrifuges.

With near silent operation and a fixed speed that produces 2,000x g, the centrifuge is ideal 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 to enable removal of samples.

The multifuge can accommodate smaller 0.5 and 0.6ml tubes and can also be used with low-cost optional adapters. At just 14cm wide x 11cm high and weighing 1.1kg, the ultra-compact multifuge is a truly personal sized centrifuge that will fit within on the smallest benchtop space, yet provides unmatched capacity and flexibility.
