The machine is OK to use, but need some work to keep running the spin quietly.
Application Area: Molecular biology
"The machine is easy to use; the system to chilling down air is fast. But, the noise is big, and the lid stand stick easily gets out of order."

Very useful instrument! Recommended!
Application Area:Several assays, from nucleic acid to protein applications
"The 5430 R centrifuge allows us to perform multiple assays/applications accommodating rotors also for microplates and 15/50 mL conical tubes. 48 wells, refrigerated, medium size on benchtop and very easy to use. There's also the possibility to set up to 5 programs."

Great centrifuge, use it daily
Application Area:Protein analysis
"We have several of these centrifuges in our lab. We use them daily and have never had a problem with them."

"It is easy to use the automatic rotor recognition. It can store up to 50 routine programs. The fast temp’ is great for achieving required temperature in shortest possible time. ‘Fast Temp pro’ having the centrifuge refrigerated and ready-for-use at your desired pre-set time."

"We bought this centrifuge and had used it once when it started giving an electrical error message. It took almost a month to get it functional from this point. Reps from other companies asked why they hadn't swapped it for a new one, they didn't have any available apparently. We weren't impressed that a new instrument had not been tested prior to shipping to the customer. Other than this issue this centrifuge is fine."
