Centrifuge 5424 and Centrifuge 5424 R are the new laboratory standard. With their 24-place capacity and speed up to 21,130 × g they are perfectly equipped for all modern molecular biology applications in Eppendorf and PCR tubes. When working with spin columns kits, the Eppendorf Kit rotor® with raised rim solves the issue of open tube caps shearing off during the elution step. Refrigerated Centrifuge 5424 R features state of the art cooling technology to ensure energy efficiency and high-temperature accuracy for maximum sample protection. For ease-of-operation and time savings, Centrifuge 5424 R cools down to 4 °C in only 8 minutes. Centrifuge 5424/ 5424 R

Soft – touch, one – finger closure for ergonomic lid locking

Eppendorf Kit rotor® (F – 45 – 18 – 11 – Kit) for 18 x spin columns and 1.5/2.0 mL tubes (max. 18,111 x g)

This unique rotor offers a solution for a common problem when working with MiniPrep spin column kits: open tube lids that shear off during the elution step. This problem traditionally occurs because standard rotors do not provide enough support for open tube lids during centrifugation. The Eppendorf Kit rotor is designed with an extended rim that serves as a rest for tube caps during centrifugation and protects them from shearing off. Your tube lids will not tear off anymore.

For more than 70 years, Eppendorf has been innovating and providing premium lab instruments and consumables for various facilities working on liquid handling, sample preparation, and cell handling applications. Offering an extensive range of versatile lab equipment including lab pipettes, automated pipetting systems, spectrometers, ultra-temperature freezers plus robust lab supplies such as pipette tubes, sample tubes, and microtiter plates, Eppendorf makes way for unparallaled lab efficiency and improved workflows. With products engineered to meet the highest standards, Eppendorf guarantees the best quality products possible — ideal not just for academic and commercial research, pharmaceutical, clinical, and biotechnological laboratories, but also for industries including the food, forensics, and chemical sectors.
