Product News: Eppendorf Introduces New Rotors for Centrifuges 5804/5804 R and 5810/5810 R

26 Mar 2013

Eppendorf introduces four new rotors for Centrifuges 5804/5804 R and 5810/5810 R, which are defined as the true workhorses of the lab with their renowned quality, reliability and versatility.

Two new swing-bucket rotors increase the capacity of the Centrifuge 5804/5804 R to 1 liter and Centrifuge 5810/5810 R to 3 liter. The new 3 liter swing-bucket rotor (4 x 750 mL) makes the Centrifuge 5810/5810 R the smallest 3 liter centrifuge available and contains options for round and plate buckets, either of which can use new aerosol-tight Eppendorf QuickLock® caps for one-handed operation. Also, the new aerodynamic round bucket design allows for energy savings up to 36% (compared to rotor A-4-81).

In addition, there are two new fixed-angle rotors now available for both Centrifuges 5804/5804 R and 5810/5810 R. These rotors include aerosol-tight Eppendorf QuickLock lids, which require only a quarter turn! The new 48 x 1.5/2 mL rotor (FA-45-48-11) has a max speed of 19,083 x g. Also available is a high-capacity fixed-angle rotor for 15 mL conical and glass tubes (F-35-48-17), with capacity for 40 x 15 mL conical tubes and max speed up to 5,050 x g.
