Labnet’s MPS 1000 Microplate 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 take up valuable space on the laboratory bench. The unique design of the Mini Plate Spinner results in a compact centrifuge that has an extremely small footprint – just 6 x 6 inches. Two standard microplates are loaded through a slot in the top of the centrifuge unit. Sealed plates are loaded vertically – surface tension keeps samples in place so there is no danger of spilling samples.
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 applications, the Plate spinner may be used in a cold room.
