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

Rotational Speed / Revolutions Per Minute (RPM)

The Benchmark LC-8 Plus MicroCentrifuge allows you to spin liquid samples with speeds ranging from 400 RPM to 5,000 RPM. Users can adjust the speed control or select speed rate based on the fluid samples and specific applications they are working on as it is a variable speed unit. .

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

Rotor Type

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

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

Since it is a ventilated or non-refrigerated unit, the Benchmark LC-8 Plus MicroCentrifuge is recommended not just for applications running non-temperature sensitive samples but also for a variety of clinical and routine applications that do not demand 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
