The economical entry-level refrigerated Centrifuge 5418 R is ideal for routine molecular biology applications. With 18 places for 1.5/2.0 mL tubes, maximum speed is 16,873 x g (14,000 rpm) and the unique QuickLock™ rotor lid saves time when opening and closing. Temperature range is 0°C to 40°C, with a constant 4 °C at maximum speed and continuous cooling after centrifugation for optimal sample condition.
5418 R benefits from the patented compressor technology which reduces vibrations and protects samples. Applications for this microcentrifuge range across molecular biology, biochemistry and biotechnology, from isolation of DNA, RNA or proteins and pelletizing of cells, to aerosol-tight centrifugation of infectious samples.
