A centrifuge is an instrument which can separate the liquid in the sample mixture form from solid particles or liquid and liquid, using centrifugal force, according to different principles such as sedimentation coefficient of each component in the mixture , mass, density. This instrument can be found in most laboratories.
There are many types of centrifuges that can be categorized in several ways.
Speed: low speed centrifuge (<10,000 rpm/min), high speed centrifuge (10,000 rpm/min – 30,000 rpm / min) and ultra high speed centrifuge (> 30,000 rpm / min).
Temperature: Some centrifuges have a cooling function, depending on the different requirements of the sample.
Capacity: According to the capacity, it can be divided into micro centrifuge, large capacity centrifuge and super large capacity centrifuge. You need to calculate the total volume of the sample you need to centrifuge each time, and then choose the right rotor and adaptor.
Appearance: According to the appearance, it can be divided into desktop centrifuge and floor-type centrifuge.
If your sample volume is very small, you can choose a mini centrifuge. If you have temperature requirements for centrifuged samples, you can choose a centrifuge with cooling function. As you purchase, you need to know the capacity of your sample, as well as the maximum centrifugal force and maximum speed you need to achieve, so you can choose the right rotor and adapter.
The mini centrifuge is small in size and is suitable for 2.0ml, 1.5ml, 0.5ml, 0.2ml centrifuge tubes and 0.2ml, 8 rows of centrifuge tubes for PCR. It has the function of open cover pause function, and automatically runs in the original time after closing the lid. It also has the electronic timing function. It has fully transparent round top cover, equipped with multiple rotors.
