Great instrument for the separation of molecules.
Application Area: Separating DNA/RNA molecules from molecular contaminants
"I use a microcentrifuge on a daily basis for the extraction of DNA, RNA and cDNA. This Eppendorf centrifuge is best for this purpose as is very easy to use with various rotors that are easy to replace. Also, there are a good number of tubes you can keep in the rotor for one round of spin. Easy to handle. With this centrifuge you can change the temperature and refrigerate too."

Easy to use.
Application Area:Filter samples
"Easy to use, very self-explanatory. Nice buttons on key pads. Wider spin speed range than the mini-centrifuge so can use it for various sample preps without using much bench space for a large centrifuge."

Would buy again in a heartbeat.
Application Area:RNA Extraction
"This centrifuge is a huge help to our laboratory. It's easy to program and to operate, it is quiet, has a lot of room for tubes, and is easy to clean. Would highly recommend it."

"This is a great freezing centrifuge. It cools down quickly and maintains temperature. I have had no problems using it the entire day straight. It is compact and very user friendly. My freshman researchers have had no trouble operating it independently."
This refrigerated model features state of the art cooling technology to ensure energy efficiency and high temperature accuracy for maximum sample protection. For ease of operation and time savings, Model 5424 R cools down to 4°C in only 8 minutes.
Like all Eppendorf centrifuges Model 5424 R offers you more than just speed and capacity to benefit you and your work environment: operating concept and overall design are based on in-depth ergonomic studies, making everyday routines faster and easier. The model is whisper quiet—even if you don’t use the rotor lid—due to the unique OptiBowl design. For all applications involving hazardous samples such as viruses, bacteria, blood, or radioactive probes we equip this model with an aerosol-tight rotor to ensure maximum safety for you and your colleagues.
