C1012 - Myfuge™12 Mini Centrifuge
Unlike traditional mini centrifuges, the new MyFuge™ 12 eliminates the need to change rotors when switching between microtubes and PCR strips. The included, unique COMBI-Rotor™ is all that is required for running 12 microtubes and/or 4 PCR strips.
With a fixed speed that produces 2,000 xg, this centrifuge is perfect for quick spin downs. Simply close the lid and the unit quickly ramps up to 5500 rpm. Open the lid, and the rotor quickly decelerates for removal of samples.
At just 5.5 inches wide and less than 4.5 inches tall, the MyFuge 12 truly is a personal microcentrifuge with unmatched capacity and flexibility.
C2000 - Platefuge™ Microplate Microcentrifuge With Rotor And Plate Carriers
Benchmark’s PlateFuge™ is the first “mini” sized centrifuge with a swing out rotor for microplates. Centrifuging plates before PCR ensures all reactants are in the bottom of the wells for proper concentrations and improved yields.
Despite its remarkably small footprint (9×10 in.), the PlateFuge™ includes a uniquely designed, swing out rotor (patent pending) capable of securing 2 microplates. The easily accessible rotor chamber includes two plate carriers that rest at a 75° angle. This allows plates to be inserted confidently without sealing tapes or caps. Upon closing the lid of the centrifuge, the rotor accelerates and the centrifugal force “swings” the plates into a horizontal position. Any droplets on the walls of the plate quickly concentrate into the well bottoms.
With a g-force of 600 xg, most samples can be spun down in less than 20 seconds.
To end a run, simply open the lid and the automatic, electric brake brings the rotor to a quick, smooth stop in just 4 seconds. Plates can then be easily removed from the rotor.
C2417 - MC-24™ Touch High Speed Microcentrifuge with Combi-Rotor
Benchmark’s MC-24 Touch is the first microcentrifuge in its class to feature touch screen control. In addition to the next generation control panel, the centrifuge also offers high speed (up to 13,500 rpm/16,800 xg) and a unique COMBI-Rotor™ with lid that accepts both standard microtubes (1.5/2.0ml) and PCR tubes/strips (0.2ml), making this the perfect partner for any molecular biology laboratory.
The large, color touch screen shows actual speed (in rpm or rcf) along with set and remaining time. Up to 9 speed/time profiles can be stored in memory and the home screen displays a “mySpin” icon for instant recalls a designated favorite profile.
Supplied with Benchmark’s unique COMBI-Rotor™, the MC-24 Touch will accept 24×1.5/2.0ml tubes, 2 strips of 0.2ml tubes (16×0.2ml), and up to 12x spin column kits without requiring separate adapters. Samples are kept cool, even during extended runs at the maximum speed setting by a proprietary air flow system that moves air evenly and quietly throughout the chamber.
The MC-24 Touch is cold room safe and carries a 2-year warranty.
C1005 - Myfuge™ 5 Microcentrifuge with Combination Rotor For 4 X 5ml & 4 X 1.5/2.0ml
The myFuge™ 5 microcentrifuge includes a four-position rotor for compatibility with a variety of 50ml test tubes, including 5ml snap cap centrifuge tubes. In addition, this combination rotor has four additional slots for centrifuging standard microtubes (1.5 / 2.0ml). Simply close the lid and the centrifuge quickly accelerates to the fixed speed of 5,500 rpm.
The 5ml rotor positions accept 5ml centrifuge tubes directly, while 5ml blood and culture tubes (12 x 75mm) are accepted with the included adapters. The microtube positions are designed to accept 0.5ml and 0.2ml tubes with the use of optional adapters.
Z216-MK Refrigerated Microcentrifuge
Compact, quiet, and powerful are just a few of the features found on the Z216 series microcentrifuges. Add to this, the versatility of ten available rotor options, and the result is the ideal microcentrifuge for the modern molecular biology laboratory.
All common microtubes (0.2ml, 0.5ml, 1.5ml, 2.0ml) can be accepted as well as PCR strips, hematocrit tubes, and even 5.0ml centrifuge tubes. Advanced microprocessor controls allow for setting/displaying of the rotational speed in either rpm or rcf. In addition to retrieving saved programs, the easy-to-use front panel can adjust accel/decel rates and change the end of run alarm tone. Despite a remarkably small footprint, the Z216 series offers a uniquely designed 44 x 1.5ml dual row rotor, nearly doubling the capacity when compared to traditional microcentrifuges.
In the Z216-MK model a powerful, compressor driven cooling system maintains temperatures as low as -20°C and is designed to reach 4°C (from room temperature) in less than 10 minutes.
Z446 Series - 4 x 750ml High-Capacity Centrifuge
The Z446 universal centrifuge series offers the highest capacity of any benchtop Hermle-Benchmark model. With air-craft grade, premium alloy construction, the 4 x 750ml swing out rotor can withstand centrifugal forces upwards of 4,500 xg with full loads of up to 28 x 50ml, 68 x 15ml tubes, and up to 20 x microplates.
Advanced microprocessor controls allow for instant rotor identification, which automatically converts the rotational speed to the relevant g-force (rcf), preventing the user from setting a speed above the capabilities of the installed rotor. In addition to retrieving saved programs, the easy-to-use front panel can adjust accel/decel rates and change the end of run alarm tone. Rotor exchange is simple and requires less than one minute. An included rotor wrench can be used to loosen and install all rotors. As soon as the rotor is placed on the motor shaft, the identification process activates, and the installed rotor code is displayed on the backlit LCD display.
Z287-A Microcentrifuge PLUS - Next Generation Microcentrifuge
The Z287-A exceeds the limitations set forth by traditional microcentrifuges which are restricted solely to fixed angle rotors for microtubes. Instead, this compact, next generation model features an expansive line of swing out and fixed angle rotors options that accept microplates and test-tubes up to 50ml. We’ve designed this centrifuge to be our most compact and economical. A true workhorse for any lab requiring a centrifuge that can accommodate many fields of research.
Along with a broad range of available rotor options, the Z287-A introduces a convenient status indicator. Users can easily view the current state of the centrifuge from across the room. The LED illuminates to signify if the rotor is spinning, the run is completed, or the centrifuge is idle in standby mode.
Advanced microprocessor controls allow for instant rotor identification, which automatically converts the rotational speed to the relevant g-force (rcf), preventing the user from setting a speed above the capabilities of the installed rotor. In addition to retrieving saved programs, the EZ-Scroll touch wheel front panel can adjust accel/decel rates and change the end of run alarm tone. Additionally, this feature prevents debris buildup, leakage, and can be operated with gloves on. The Z287-A is a truly powerful and versatile centrifuge perfect for any research laboratory.
SIEVA-3 - Filtration Centrifuge
The SIEVA-3 Filtration Centrifuge is the perfect centrifuge for cake filtration. The powerful SIEVA-3 reaches speeds up to 10,000rpm/7,825 xg, and features a transparent viewing port in the lid for close monitoring of samples. The stainless-steel housing and parts make the SIEVA-3 corrosion resistant, and easy to clean. 500ml filtration baskets are available in both perorated and non-perforated. Clarified liquids exit the unit via the drain located on the side of the unit.
Advanced microprocessor controls allow for setting/displaying of the rotational speed in either rpm or rcf. In addition to retrieving saved programs, the easy-to-use front panel can adjust accel/decel rates and change the end of run alarm tone.
