Maximum speed with minimal space This compact centrifuge is ideal for most protocols calling for fast spins (up to 12,500 rpm / 9,800 rcf) and quick spin-downs. Useful for PCR®, microfilter cell separation, clinical applications, and HPLC protocols. Operation is extremely simple for this high-level of sophistication: Insert tubes, close lid, adjust speed/time, and press Start. For duplicate spins, simply reload rotor and push Start. Designed with quick-spin option for commonly used 20-second spins. Also includes a tool-free, quick-change rotor system. Safety features ensure the unit will not operate with an open lid, a jammed rotor or when out of balance. Gusto provides the option of setting and displaying in rpm or rcf. Efficiently designed for minimum of bench top space. Included features typically found on more expensive units. Tested to comply with U.S., Canadian and European Safety and EMC standards.
