What is the speed offered by the Benchmark LC-8 MicroCentrifuge?

Rotational Speed / Revolutions Per Minute (RPM)

Built to be a variable speed unit, the Benchmark LC-8 MicroCentrifuge allows you to run samples with speeds ranging from 400 RPM to 3,500 RPM. Select speed rate or adjust the speed control depending on the samples and specific applications you are working on.

What type of rotors does the Benchmark LC-8 MicroCentrifuge feature?

Rotor Type

With fixed angle rotors capable of holding sample tubes at a stable angle, usually ranging from 25° to 40°, the Benchmark LC-8 MicroCentrifuge is ideal when working with high centrifugal forces and is perfect for pelleting particles from suspension, collecting pellets, or removing excess debris.

Is the Benchmark LC-8 MicroCentrifuge a refrigerated unit or not?

Because it is a non-refrigerated or ventilated unit, the Benchmark LC-8 MicroCentrifuge is recommended for applications spinning non-temperature sensitive samples as well as a variety of clinical and routine applications that do not require precise temperature control.

Benchmark's LC-8 series of laboratory centrifuges is uniquely designed to meet a wide range of applications in both the clinical and research laboratory. An eight position rotor is included and designed to directly accept 10ml and 15ml test-tubes (conical or round bottom), while optional adapters are also available for use with all popular sizes of blood collection and culture tubes. Unlike most compact centrifuges in this class, the rotor can be easily removed from the chamber for cleaning.

The back-lit, liquid crystal display provides full control over the set run time and rotational speed. The rotational speed can be set/viewed in rpm or rcf and acceleration/deceleration levels can be easily adjusted in the advanced settings mode.

To ensure safety, the digital microprocessor ensures that the lid has been closed and that the safety lid lock is engaged prior to starting a centrifugation cycle. In addition, an advanced imbalance detection system constantly monitors the balance and vibration, automatically bringing the rotor to a stop if an imbalance is detected.

  • Digital Speed control up to 5,000 rpm

  • Safety lid-lock, prevents opening lid until rotor stops

  • Unique air-flow design keeps samples cool

  • 8 tube capacity, for tubes up to 15ml
