Which microcentrifuge is right for you?

Find the ideal blend of capabilities to support your micro-volume protocols—from basic microtube processing to nucleic acid mini-preps and spin-columns to hematocrit capillaries—in a small footprint with:

  • Intuitive controls, easy-to-read displays, and fast one-click centrifuge lid closure
  • Fast acceleration and deceleration, and outstanding corrosion resistance with lightweight engineered polymer rotors
  • Wide variety of rotors support 0.2, 0.5, 1.5, 2.0mL microtubes, PCR strip tubes, 5mL tubes, and hematocrit
    capillary tubes
  • Added sample security with Thermo Scientific™ ClickSeal™ biocontainment lids (selected rotors only)

Thermo Scientific 17,000 xg microcentrifuges are excellent for routine laboratory work, while the 21,100 xg models are ideal for high-end research applications, reducing spin times by up to 20% when compared with the 17 versions. Both ventilated and refrigerated models are available, in addition to choice of 7 rotors to find the ideal fit for your application
