Labnet's MPS 1000 Mini Plate Spinner is the first centrifuge designed specifically for quick and easy centrifugation of samples in PCR plates or microplates. Centrifuges that accept microplates are typically larger units that occupy valuable space on the bench. The Mini Plate Spinner's unique design results in a compact centrifuge that has an extremely small footprint - just 15.24 x 15.24cm.
Two standard microplates are loaded through a slot in the top of the unit. Sealed plates are loaded vertically, and surface tension keeps samples in place so there is no danger of spilling. Upon closing the lid of the unit, the rotor quickly accelerates the microplates to 2,500 rpm. Pressing the open button engages the brake and brings the rotor to a stop. For temperature sensitive application, the MPS 1000 may also be used in a cold room.
- Quickly spin down droplets and condensation
- Use before and after thermal cycling to increase PCR yield
- Accepts skirted, non-skirted and all standard PCR plates
- Less than 1/4 the size of most plate centrifuges
Note: To order 230V units, add -230V to the end of the catalog number. Specify cord type by adding -EU or -UK.
