Meeting the full spectrum of your requirements.
The Spectrafuge™ 16M Microcentrifuge is the perfect high speed compact microcentrifuge. Producing a maximum of 16,000 x g, it is the ideal unit for DNA applications.
A brushless, maintenance free motor provides extremely fast acceleration and deceleration of the 18-place rotor and makes the Spectrafuge™ 16M one of the quietest microcentrifuges in its class.
- Brushless, maintenance-free motor
- Exceptionally quiet and cool operation
- High maximum speed/g-force
- Extremely small footprint
Speed and time are set with the control knobs on the front panel of the unit. A "Quick" button allows for momentary runs. A continuous flow of ambient air through the rotor chamber keeps the rotor and samples cool. For applications requiring sub-ambient temperatures, the Spectrafuge™ 16M may be operated in a cold room.
The unique air ducting system in the Spectrafuge 16M supplies a continuous flow of ambient air to the rotor chamber. This airflow keeps the rotor cool and prevents a significant rise in sample temperature. For applications requiring conditions below ambient, the Spectrafuge 16M can be used in refrigerated environments.
The Spectrafuge 16M is powered by a maintenance-free brushless motor. There are no brushes to change and no carbon dust emissions. This high perfor-mance motor is extremely quiet and generates a minimal amount of heat while running. It also allows for exceptionally fast acceleration and deceleration of the rotor.
The Spectrafuge™ 16M Microcentrifuge is supplied complete with an 18 place rotor for 1.5/2.0 mL tubes. Smaller tubes are accommodated by adapters (sold separately). The optional Strip-Spin™ rotor adapter holds two 8 x 0.2 mL strips, typically used for PCR.
