Description Technical Specs
  • Quickly spins down droplets in PCR plates
  • Unique rotor design prevents sample spillage
  • 50% smaller than traditional centrifuges
  • Accepts all popular PCR plates (skirted, semi & non) & most microfilter plates
Benchmark's Platefuge is the first "mini" sized centrifuge with a swing out rotor for microplates. Centrifuging plates before PCR ensures all reactants are in the bottom of the wells for proper concentrations and improved yields.

In spite of its remarkably small footprint (9 x 10 in.), the PlateFuge includes a uniquely designed swing out rotor (patent pending) capable of securing 2 microplates. The easy accessible rotor chamber includes two plate carriers that rest at a 75 degree angle. This allows the plates to be inserted confidently without sealing tapes or caps. Upon closing the lid of the centrifuge, the rotor accelerates and the centrifugal force "swings" the plates into a horizontal position. Any droplets on the walls of the plate quickly concentrate into the well bottoms.

With a g-force of over 400xg, most samples can be spun down in less than 20 seconds. To end a run, simply open the lid and the automatic, electric brake brings the rotor to a quick, smooth stop in about 7 seconds. Plates can then be easily removed from the rotor.

A 230 V version of this product is available. Please contact us for details.
