  compact benchtop centrifuge
 

Our small benchtop centrifuges offer maximized capacity in a compact footprint, accommodating multi-laboratory settings with the flexibility to adapt to your evolving needs.

High safety, solid reliability and consistent results.

Our routine benchtop centrifuges are designed for mid-performance needs of basic research and clinical applications, often requiring repetitive and consistent protocols. With a focus on quality, throughput and reliability, they provide a robust solution to less technical applications.

Safe, simple, comfortable operation with optimized performance, innovative design and enhanced ergonomics.

Our high performance benchtop centrifuges, including touch screen options for efficient programming and faster results, are ideal for applications requiring more flexibility, speed and programming. A wider array of rotor choices, higher speeds and up to 100 stored programs ensure compatibility with a wide array of protocols, even across multiple applications.

Versatility and unparalleled processing performance with constant focus on improved safety and durability.
