New Centrifuge Includes High Tech Features in a Small Package

Cool, compact, and high-capacity

By ,

If you need a high capacity centrifuge but have limited lab space, Eppendorf may have the solution for you with the release of its new refrigerated centrifuge, the Centrifuge 5920 R.

Eppendorf Centrifuge 5920 RThe centrifuge can accommodate up to four standard 1 Liter Nalgene® bottles, as well as up to 108 x 15mL conical tubes, and 52 x 50mL conical tubes, enabling researchers to spin large volumes simultaneously, in applications such as bioprocessing or cell culture. The new unit’s universal rotor bucket design also enables researchers to spin both plates and tubes in the same bucket without needing to purchase separate plate buckets

And the refrigeration system is also impressive, featuring advanced temperature management that allows users to ensure their temperature-sensitive samples are safe. In addition, dynamic compressor control technology and a FastTemp pro® function allow precise and automated pre-cooling based on a pre-programmable time and date.

The 5920 is easy to use and features a multi-lingual menu with backlit display and fi ve program keys enabling rapid access to routine programs. The unit’s adjustable ECO shut-off function also allows users to save energy and increase compressor life.

“With laboratories under increasing pressure to increase effi ciencies and throughput, we understand the challenges that researchers face in their work,” said Peter Schreiner, global product manager of centrifugation at Eppendorf. “The very large capacity and precise temperature management offered by the Centrifuge 5920 R means researchers can be assured that not only are their samples safe, but that they are saving time, money, and energy with this system.”
