Perfect for high capacity/traffic general lab areas.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: Biology lab

"Great mini spin for microcentrifuge tubes at each benchtop. Having these at each bench limits student traffic across and around the lab. Works very well, easy to use."

Compact quick spin centrifuge, good build quality, higher speed.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Quick centrifugation of samples

"Compact Quick spin centrifuge for 1.5 ml tubes. The rotor accommodates 12 × 1.5/2.0 mL Maximum speed can be up to 12000g, g almost near normal centrifuges. Easy soft-touch closure lid, The latch of the lid opens automatically after the run. The centrifuge is a bit noisy for my liking when compared to Eppendorf micro centrifuges 5410. Working for last 5 years without any major issues. Build quality is solid, compared to low-cost quick spin centrifuges."

Excellent unit for quick spinning.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Micro-centrifuge

"This is an amazing min centrifuge for quick spinning tubes of sizes including 1.5/2.0 mL tubes and even 0.6 mL tubes with the adapter. The easy to handle lid can be opened and closed by clicking a button only. Increase and decrease arrow button can be use for speed changes, and timing. The only problem is if you have a lot of tubes then you have to repeat the same steps several times."

A good, sturdy, and quiet little centrifuge
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Microbial diversity

"A buck well spent. This little centrifuge can go a long way and it's really silent. It has a little on/off switch in the back so you won't have to unplug it if you don't use it for a long time, a cool little stainless steel cap, and a really long power lid with a safety fuse included. I've been using it for years and have never encountered a problem with it - once you get one you'll love it, it will become the workhorse of the lab for centrifuging."

"This is the best lab centrifuge on the market."

Review date: 19 Oct 2009 | Micro Centrifuge MiniSpin® plus
The mystery has been solved: Real-life personal centrifuges of an out-of-this-world quality really do exist. Eppendorf, the world's number one for microcentrifuges, has opened up a new dimension for personal centrifuges, in the form of MiniSpin® and MiniSpin plus®.

With a futuristic exterior home to safe, reliable and durable technology, Eppendorf has managed to fit the tried and tested standards of larger models into the smallest space possible. This is borne out by MiniSpin's unique low running noise.

Both personal centrifuges are high-performance, easy-to-operate 12-position models which have been designed especially for modern-day training and industrial research purposes. In other words, what you have here are not sensitive "beta versions", but professional personal devices that can call themselves "centrifuges" without any fear of contradiction.

In detail:
The maintenance-free drive of MiniSpin accelerates up to twelve 1.5/2.0 ml Eppendorf Tubes® to a maximum speed of 13,400 rpm (rcf: 12,100 x g) in the blink of an eye - and so quietly that you'll hardly know it's there.

With its refined black rotor, MiniSpin plus can top even that, reaching a maximum speed of 14,500 rpm (rcf: 14,000 x g). As you would expect, MiniSpin and MiniSpin plus offer typical user comfort à la Eppendorf, including automatic lid release, an easily comprehensible display for intuitive operation and a separate short-spin key for immediate reduced-time runs. In the short-spin mode of MiniSpin plus, users can choose their own speed and set the built-in timer to 99 minutes or "continuous operation".

The unique performance spectrum in this centrifuge category is a galaxy of its own: At long last, it is now possible to process samples rapidly. Routine runs, such as spin column preparations can be carried out at your own personalized workstation, with a minimum of time and effort.

MiniSpin® and MiniSpin® plus:
A new dimension and an out-of-this-world design: these new personal centrifuges are head and shoulders above the competition. In fact, they're from a different world - a world called Eppendorf.
