  • Customer Reviews on FC5306 Mini Centrifuge from Ohaus

    Although simple in construction, this unit provides a powerful operation. I use it for everyday basic centrifugation tasks and so far, so good. I love how it can work with tube rotors and strip PCR tube rotors, makes it flexible for standard spinning applications.

    This small but powerful centrifuge is suitable for my basic liquid separation tasks. I particularly love its multiple safety features and how it comes with a brushless motor -- easy to maintain and doesn't distract anyone from our lab. I guess the only downside on this unit is that it doesn't have a display feature.
