Product News: Eppendorf Introduces Two Refrigerated Microcentrifuges at BIOTECHNICA 2010

08 Oct 2010

The new refrigerated 18-space and 24-space microcentrifuges from Eppendorf are right in step with Eppendorf’s Silence | Speed | Simplicity™ philosophy for centrifugation. With their small footprint, extremely silent operation and FastTemp function for quick pre-cooling, the centrifuges 5418 R and 5424 R set new standards for refrigerated microcentrifuges.

BIOTECHNICA also saw the launch of the Eppendorf Award 2011. Researchers up to 35 years of age and working in Europe are eligible to apply for the Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators 2011.

A further market introduction is the first breakable PCR plate. It can be easily separated into smaller fragments to accommodate experiments of a smaller format. This saves both material and money. The “twin.tec 96 PCR Plates unskirted, separable“ may be broken into four 24-well segments. The empty remainder of the plate is thus available for future experiments. The plates are compatible with nearly all common cyclers.
